Chocolate brownies

Three different types of chocolate ensure a stunning melt in this recipe. White chocolate, bitter and milk chocolate combine here to create an incredibly juicy chocolate dream.

Chocolate brownies

If you look at the list of ingredients for these chocolate brownies, it quickly becomes clear: Diet is different… But for sure, my blog is not a diet blog, but a pure pleasure blog 😉 And these brownies fit in any case. They are simply delicious – and not just with coffee. Together with a scoop of ice cream, they even look good as a dessert.

If you double the recipe, the dough is enough for a normal, deep baking sheet. The brownies are ideal for freezing and can also thaw again at lightning speed. So you always have a small supply at hand.

But for special occasions, even Champagne fits to perfect the scallops on Capellini with this velvety saffron sauce. The blood oranges make the icing on the cake not only optically. A dream of a starter!

Shore leave St. Cruz de La Palma/Canary Islands

The Italian ship’s doctor, known for his passion for good food, invited us to this restaurant. He has been visiting it for years on every port stay in Santa Cruz. Now we know why. A tiny house with an even tinier kitchen, six tables, great taste and even greater hospitality. Happy, who gets a table at Doña Carmen, at the ENRICLAI in Santa Cruz de La Palma.
