This recipe is adapted from a classic recipe of my Mom’s. I have nothing witty, charming, or anecdotal to say about it-just try it and you’ll be at a loss for words too.
Fantasy Brownies are made with “Fantasy Island” Tea-a heavenly blend of black tea, raspberries and coconut. Taste the whimsy.
1 cup butter
3 teaspoons Fantasy Island Tea (One of my new favourites. I may or may not have had 5 cups yesterday.)
3 cups brownsugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup cocoa
2 cups flour
1.) Melt butter in sauce pan on stove. Add 3 teaspoons Fantasy Island loose leaves and infuse. Put on some Bob Marley and imagine yourself on an Island somewhere as you mellow out to the smell of the butter & coconut. (This is a totally made up step-I was definitely listening to Radiohead as I infused the butter. I was relaxed none the less.) Steep tea in butter for 5 minutes. When the butter changes colour and smells a little like heaven, strain through sieve.
2.) Beat eggs well. Ad brown sugar, vanilla, and melted butter. Stir until well blended. Add flour and cocoa and mix well together.
3.) Bake in a 9x13 pan at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Frost and cut while warm.
2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
3-4 tablespoons strong Fantasy Island tea.
1.) Toss in bowl. I’m pretty sure you know the rest…(ie. beat till smooth & put on brownies)
Brownies become extra nom nom worthy when served with raspberries.
