Brownie is one of the most popular cakes in the world. And if this is your favorite dessert, do not worry that you cannot eat it, because of the diet. You can bake keto brownie with tahini, which is no worse than the traditional recipe. This is a wonderful chocolate keto dessert with small amount of carbs. Delicious cake that you can eat without feeling guilty even at night.
You can meet countless variations of brownie recipes. First of all, the recipes differ in the dough consistency, starting with a dense of fudge and ending with a light air biscuit. According to the recipes brownie can be and half-baked with the liquid centre, or completely baked and hard. Another difference in these recipes is the filling. Someone mixes the dough with different nuts, coffee, whiskey, liqueurs, kaimak, dried fruits.
The popularity of brownie and so many variations are due to the two factors – easy preparation and chocolate among the ingredients. Brownie is not a particularly complex or exquisite cake. For its preparation you do not need too much time, or special kitchen equipment, nor professional culinary skills. However, requires large quantities of chocolate, that is why the original brownie can’t be eaten on keto diet.
The structure of the brownie dough
By baking different kinds of cakes, such as souflete, cookies, bread, pizza, croissants we try to make air dough, make it more lush. To do this, we use additives such as yeast and baking powder, and we have to thoroughly beat everything.
I have good news for all lazy people – cooking brownie is very often the opposite of what is written above. Here, the goal is rather to create a dough structure that will be dense or creamy. That’s why in brownie recipes, even not in the keto versions, you won’t find whipping whites or the need of long yeast fermentation.
Such a dense structure of the dough is much easier to get than the usual porous and airy. Preparing the dough for this keto dessert takes less time and requires less ingredients. And, what is more important for many of us, the probability that something will go wrong is very small. We don’t have to worry that the keto dessert will drain – the brownie dough in the oven barely rises at all.
Keto brownie recipe
Description and sequence of actions in almost all variants of brownie recipes is the same: eggs are mixed separately with sugar, then add melted chocolate and butter, and then flour. After a short mixing of the ingredients we get the cake – it’s that simple. What do we do in the keto dessert version?
