In my household, we love eating nuts. However, some people (read: my husband) are just plain silly because even though he will eat nuts by the handful he hates nuts in desserts. This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Carmel-Peanut-Topped Brownie Cake, has nuts right there in its name. Because I didn’t want a mini-revolt, I made mini-cupcakes: 1/2 with peanuts and 1/2 without peanuts. :P I also made a cake using my mini-springform pan because I had left over batter.
Tammy of wee treats by tammy chose this recipe. You can find the recipe on her blog. I liked the brownie cake itself b/c it wasn’t dense or overly sweet. I probably could have carmelized the sugar a bit longer, but overall it worked with the cake.
