“I’m curious about some of your favorite cooks, chefs and whom inspires you. With so many fantastic individuals out there, do you have any favorites?”

When blog reader Justine emailed me back in January with this question, I’d hit a wall. 

In my household, I’d had a mix of the traditional chefs/home cooks/authors (Julia Child, Rick Bayliss, Edna Lewis) and some which were introduced to me as I grew older (Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver, David Lebovitz and Curtis Stone). Although I did go through a stage where I was over Jamie Oliver….mainly because they showed his show ON REPEAT FOR A YEAR.

Sorry.

While my mum and other relatives still continue sticking to the classics, I’ve found myself more connected with ones I was introduced to from the beginning of their careers, and able to experience them doing amazing things- Something which is motivating and inspiring me to ensure my first cookbook will be a success. 

For the next couple of weeks, I’ve got a fun little series to share with you on TBMW- I’m going to share a recipe from four of my (current) favorite cookbooks with a TBMW adaptation on them. The recipes I’ll be sharing are perhaps, my favorite of each of the four authors and ones which I’ve made countless times. As with any recipe, I will ensure my adaptations are VERY minor or adapted in such a way to do the original recipe justice.

The four cookbooks I currently have on my coffee table are the following-

Nigella Lawson- Simply Nigella

Curtis Stone- Good Food, Good Life 

David Lebovitz- Ready for Dessert

Jamie Oliver- Everyday Super Food

Today, we’ll be hitting one from David’s Ready for dessert

Ready for dessert was one of the first books I’d purchased, one I’d bought on a whim from a second-hand store. I’d given my car to get it’s annual service and was told I needed to wait at the actual centre, instead of dropping it off and coming back later that day. The only stores nearby where a McDonalds (got my McChicken and McFlurry during the time frame!) and a second-hand store. I mindlessly picked out Ready for dessert and also a book about pies. Let’s just say the latter was deemed useless and the former had a plethora bookmarked, especially one particular brownie recipe!

We all need a brownie recipe which is easy, impressive and guaranteed to be a hit amongst all every single time. It needs to require just a handful of ingredients and ones which most households have on hand. These, my friends, fit the bill.

While David’s original recipe is naturally gluten free and flourless, I wanted to make a few very minor swaps ensuring my paleo friends could be covered. For my vegan friends, it was a mixed bag.

I tried it using two methods, the ‘flax egg’ version and the energ-G egg replacer. The flax egg(s) tasted good, but the texture was a little off. I also tried it with this Ener-g egg replacer and while I thought it tasted better than the flax eggs, it didn’t live up to the original (Niki claimed she liked this better, but she wasn’t really concentrating and more focused on the Lindt coconut ball I’d given her….). 

To see a pictorial example of how the vegan version came out, the final photo shows the texture- Fudgy but relatively flat.

The main thing is, it’s still delicious.

ZING.

These flourless fudge brownies are rich, fudgy and have the most AMAZING texture ever, you’d be shocked to know they only need six ingredients and are much more delicious than any boxed mix out there! These super fudgy brownies are made without butter or flour, but are rich, moreish and a no mess recipe- This seriously only needs one bowl and no fancy kitchen gadgets! Because of the small adaptations made, these brownies are naturally gluten free, grain free, paleo, dairy free and has been tested vegan (See above!).

NECESSARY HACK! This is not a suggestion but a demand- You will need to wait until the brownies are cooled COMPLETELY before slicing into bars and enjoying. This will ensure the absolute best taste, texture and what I attest to be being the best (unboxed-mix) brownies ever. Bonus points will be given if you allow them to cool even longer in the fridge after. 

Eaten out of the fridge = No words. (Just two)

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup + 2 T coconut oil
  2. 225 grams dark chocolate, chopped roughly (I used a 100% Baker's chocolate)
  3. 3/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  4. 2 large eggs (can sub for 2 flax eggs or ener-g egg replacement)
  5. 2 T cocoa powder
  6. 3 T arrowroot powder (can sub for corn starch if not strictly paleo)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 x 8 pan with greaseproof paper or tin foil, with some overlay for easy removal. Grease it lightly and set aside.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, combine your chopped chocolate with coconut oil and melt together- The mixture should be silky smooth.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and add your eggs and coconut palm sugar and mix until fully incorporated. Add your cocoa powder and arrowroot powder and whisk VERY well, until the batter is no longer grainy and smooth. Transfer to lined baking dish.
  4. Bake the brownies for 20-25 minutes, or until the centre just comes out clean. Do not over bake. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan completely. If possible, once cooled, transfer to the fridge to chill for the best texture.
Notes
  1. Do not over bake- Brownies may not look 'cooked' but once cooled, they will firm up.
  2. Brownies can be kept for up to 5 days in the fridge and are freezer friendly.

  1. Rachel Ray was MY GIRL! Seriously I love her nasally voice and the premise of her show 30 Minute Meals. I would still watch those old episodes. Now my favorite cookbook is called The Vegan Stoner. It’s as great as it sounds 🙂

  2. Your favorite cookbook will be in the roundup soon but… 😉

    The Paleo Kitchen by Juli Bauer and George Bryant
    The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon
    Superfood Smoothies by Julie Morris

  3. Flourless brownies are so freaking fudgy, which is obviously exactly how I want my brownies. As a kid, we mostly followed family recipes and stuff out of Cuisine at Home magazines, but in the past few years I’ve been loving Curtis Stone, Michael Symon, and Bobby Flay. Plus way too many bloggers to name 🙂

  4. I think that’s a very cool idea for a little series. I am looking forward to hearing more about the recipes that inspired you 🙂
    Confession time: I never follow recipes out of cookbooks. Never. I love to read them. Some are just so beautiful. I often get inspired but when I want to cook a recipe I never follow the ingredients or guidelines but kind of wing it instead. The narcissist in me always knows everything better ;-P Baking is different but I am just not good at baking.

  5. I love how fudgy flourless chocolate cakes and brownies can be! And these look like the fudgiest of fudgy. They also look like they’d be great with my morning cup of coffee…or your morning mug of Red Bull. 🙂 Great chef tips here, too, mate! My chef inspiration: this guy named Arman from the Outback.

  6. Jamie Oliver is my hero (after you, of course). I go into Barnes and Noble just to read cookbooks. If I could make these brownies, pack them with me to take to Barnes and Noble and read cookbooks all day, that might be a perfect rainy day activity.

  7. Oh my these look good! My mum was never much of a cook so I was only really aware of Jamie Oliver as a kid (can totally see why you could get sick of his style). As I got older through I preferred to find people online. However, my baking bible is Bake by Nick Malgieri which I picked up by mere chance. It is my total go-to. I’m certainly planning on having your cook book become a standby too!

  8. This is like, sex in my mouth. I need it. I crave it. Look at that fudgy texture! As a self-proclaimed brownie whore, I’m going to have to try these. Like, today. Good thing my husband is gone so he won’t see the end result of me passed out on the couch, empty platter on my full belly, and my dog licking the chocolate remnants from my face…

  9. Wow! I came across your blog today and loved it and just had to try the flourless brownies. They are gorgeous. A real treat. Looking forward to trying more recipes over the next few weeks and following your online journey. Well done.

  10. I just made these brownies and they are delicious and very quick to make. They are so rich and gooey and definitely better after cooling for a little while. They are about 240 calories each if you cut them into 12 squares if anyone is wondering. This was my first time cooking anything from this site and I will definitely be back :).

  11. Hoping one Baker’s bar is enough. That’s what I had, and its only 113g, but the batter tastes delicious!

  12. Hi I stalk your website like every week for pins and recipes because I’m Alexis’ (Hummusapien’s) intern and I just made these tonight for my roommates and wow God bless. One of them said they would strip and run across the shoe and the oval for a pan of these brownies. Keep doing god’s work.

  13. Hi Arman, These look absolutely amazing. Im pretty new to the Keto world and was wondering about the ingredient arrowroot powder…not familiar with it…can i sub it if it is not carb free/sugar free? …and what may i try to sub it out with ? Thanks in advance

  14. Hey Arman! I know you live in Melbourne and so do I. I just want to ask you where can I find 100% bakers chocolate here in Melbourne?
