My wife just loves brownies. I've developed a sudden addiction to food blogging "memes", but didn't enter this one due to being a pastry novice.
I'll have to try this recipe in my own time, to try and win my Wife's affections!

What a nice idea! The bananas must keep the brownies really moist!

What kind of chocolate have you been using? I've recently been doing a bit of research into chocolate and discovered a brand called 'Amadei' from Italy which I think is pretty amazing! I've only been able to find it in the Harvey Nichols Food hall but its worth seeking out. The story behind the company is an interesting one and they really put their hearts into producing really high-quality chocolate.

I sometimes put macadamia nuts in my brownies - they are massive but I like that big bit of crunch.


Looks divine! Never thought of using banana in a brownie. For one that will make your mother even more afraid, try this one (yes, that is SIX whole eggs there!)

This is quite possibly one of the most decadent brownies ever.

Ciao. From an Italian living in London (with a daughter) congrats for your amazing blog.
I'd love to link you to the San Lorenzo one which I've recently started to support.
Let me know if you agree. I hope you will.


oh my god they look delicious. absolute heaven. perfect for a rainy day in brussels


Lots of calories, but gosh your brownies looks delicious !


I'm french and I just discover your blog. It's very beautiful ! I want eat everything because everythings looks like so tasty ! Congratulation !


Not a great fan of the yellow-ones I am afraid; but could I use pear in its place do you think?


jennifer, i used a simple meunier cooking chocolate, as this was the only thing I had at hand. I am pretty sure it will work with anything. i use valrhona when it matters and for those cakes which don't really live by the taste of the chocolate alone, i will also use the regular supermarket cooking chocolate...
andrew, not sure about the pears, i can see it working with mushy stone fruit, but do let me know how it goes. if anything, maybe stew the pears a little before adding them to the dough to make them softer.


Merci bien, Mimine, je viens juste de regarder le tien, et - quelles tartes!!! Je vais surement essayer d'en faire moi-meme. Malheureusement, les prunes qu'on achete ici a londres ne sont pas aussi bonnes que sur le continent, j'ai un faible pour les quetches, moi, et ca ne se vend pas par ici.


This is vijay.i have gone through this site it was excellent about Banana, chocolate & pecan brownie...i love it...we can gather good information about this....
