    I'm about to make my first batch of gluten free brownies. I personally don't care if they taste like chocolate cardboard, chocolate is the key word. [​IMG]
    Problem is, I rarely eat more than a brownie or two over a few days time. Assuming DH doesn't care for the taste of them - highly inprobable giving his palate [​IMG] - how can I freeze the rest for later snacking?

    Quote:Well yeah, but I wondered if there was some secret to freezing them and having them still taste like something you'd want to eat when they thaw. About the only dessert I've ever frozen is cheesecake and I follow my Dad's meticulous instructions on that.

    Just saw your post, which I'm not sure how to freeze brownies, because there wouldn't be enough left around me to freeze them. however, I wanted to be sure that you have seen the black bean chocolate cake that has been posted here before. It is GOOD. I'll see if I can find the post.

    eta link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=289322 I'm not 100% sure that it's the same recipe I use, but it's pretty easy to adjust to your likings (I used butter, and honey, but you could use different fat or sweetener) I didn't ice it either and hooray, I can eat cake again!!!

    Quote:Thanks Hun. I just found out that Betty Crocker has a whole line of gluten free baking products. So far our grocery store only carries the brownies but I am going to ask the manager about getting in the BC devils food cake as well.
    I'll definitely try this recipe.

    I wrap in plastic wrap and then in foil and freeze. I just let them thaw in the pack on the counter and they're usually nice and moist - like fresh baked. Hope they come out good - could you add some grated zucchini for extra moist brownies? I've done that a few times and they came out good too.
