Its been a while since i tried something from Arlene Kezwer’s book-Baking [easy, elegant and eggless]. Today i chose this, simply because i have this ‘dabba’ of peanut butter and i don’t know what to do with it! And honestly, brownies are welcome any day,right?
This is adapted from her ‘peanut butter blondie’ recipe. I love how simple and easy her recipes are, perfect for someone like me.
Peanut Butter Brownies
Its been a while since i tried something from Arlene Kezwer's book-Baking [easy, elegant and eggless].

Sift the flour,baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder and cornflour together.
Keep a greased and lined brownie tray ready.
Pre heat the oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl cream the unsalted butter and sugar together.
Add the peanut butter and beat well.
Mix the curd and water together. Add this to the above mixture.
Beat the wet ingredients together for about a minute.
Add the sifted flour and fold in gently until just combined.
Spoon into the prepared baking tray and smoothen the top with the back of a spoon.
Bake in the preheated oven at 170 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Test if a skewer inserted comes out clean. [once done the top of the brownie appears 'crisp' ]
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Carefully lift the brownie using the edges of the parchment paper [used to line the tray].
Allow to cool for 10 minutes more.
Slice and enjoy your peanut butter brownies.
Oven temperature and time may vary. Check on your bake after 20 minutes.
Line the baking tray such that a bit of parchment paper hangs over the edges. This will help you lift the 'brownie cake' and you can cut neat slices. In case you aren't able to do this, slice the brownies directly in the tray and remove each piece with the help of a flat spatula.
The peanut butter must be smooth and creamy.
You can throw in some nuts or chocochips to make the brownie a little more fun.
If you want to make the typical peanut butter blondies, simply skip the cocoa in the recipe.
