Bake With Me: Gingerbread Brownies (gluten-free & dairy-free!)

My mom linked me this recipe last month, and it sounded so amazing I just had to try making it. And I actually had the perfect time to do so about month ago, when my boyfriend's sister was visiting us. I've seen the same kind of pastries being currently sold in cafes, so this might be somewhat popular in Finland right now. Maybe. Not that I'm the one to know anything about trends since I kind of don't care.

I made the recipe free from gluten and dairy, because I have celiac disease and like to avoid dairy products at least to a point.

Gingerbread Brownies (recipe here in Finnish)

200 g veggie butter
150 g dark chocolate
6 dl gluten-free flour
1 dl cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp gingerbread seasoning
3 medium-sized eggs
4 1/2 dl sugar
2 dl plantmilk of your choice
100 g frozen gingerbread dough (gluten-free)

500 g powdered sugar
about 1 dl strong coffee
2 tsp gingerbread seasoning

For decoration
5 gingerbread cookies (gluten-free)

Heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

Dice the butter and cut the chocolate in small pieces. Melt the butter in a pan, take it off from the heat and add the chocolate pieces. Mix until even.

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and gingerbread seasoning in a bowl.

Break the eggs into their own bowl. Measure in the sugar and whisk until it becomes frothy and light-colored foam. Mix in the flour mix, milk and the melted chocolate-butter mix in few parts.

Cut the frozen dough into small pieces (or use baked gingerbread cookies like I did). Spread the brownie dough evenly on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the gingerbread dough pieces over the dough, and even out. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until you can stick a wooden stick in the middle and when you take it out, no raw batter comes out with it.

Let cool, and make the icing. Prepare the coffee. Pour powdered sugar in a bowl and mix in gingerbread seasoning. Pou in the coffee little by little, until the icing is so thin that it's easy to mix.

Spread the icing over the brownie. Crumble gingerbread cookies for decoration.

This was so good and very easy to do. I think I will make this again next year, because it would be fun to bake for my co-workers, as it's easy to make in big batch. It would also be fun to try to make this into fully vegan one, but I don't know how easy that would be. 

What do you think about this recipe? Is it something you'd like to try? Let me know in the comments!

That's all for this post, but later this week we will open a Christmas present from my friend, create another set of Christmas nails and talk about what I'm grateful for right now - and maybe bake a little more. After which it is already Christmas, which seems quite surreal as I feel like it was just Halloween a week or two ago. Time has flown by so fast. Anyway, if you want to see more style related content, check out my Instagram @silvertigo where I post daily outfits and more. I'll see you in the next post! 

Have a lovely day ♥
