Spiced Brownies with Caramelized Pecans

50—60 Min

These simple fudge brownies with a small twist are probably one of the easiest desserts that you can make. They are super-easy to spice up, too. Add cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves to the mix to make your bake even more delicious. Topped with caramelized pecans, they really are a dream.

Ingredients 4 Portions

Preparation

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F). Add the flour, sea salt, baking soda, cacao, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves and ground cardamom to a large bowl. Whisk the plant-based milk in a bowl with the apple cider vinegar.

  2. 2

    Melt the coconut oil over a low heat, chop the chocolate into small pieces and stir into the oil until it has melted.

  3. 3

    Then add the sugar and whisk well. Mix the sugar and chocolate mixture and the milk with the dry ingredients. Halve and scrape out a vanilla pod, add to the rest of the ingredients and combine thoroughly to form a dough. Chop half of the pecan nuts and fold into the dough.

  4. 4

    Line a small rectangular baking tin with baking parchment and pour in the dough. Bake for 30 minutes at 180°C (356°F) using the conventional oven setting.

  5. 5

    Chop the remaining pecan nuts and heat them in a pan over a medium together with the remaining coconut oil and sugar and stir constantly for 3–4 minutes until caramelized. 

  6. 6

    Spread the caramelized nuts immediately onto baking parchment and leave to cool. Serve the brownies with the pecan nuts and enjoy.
