I had different plans for today’s post, but thunderstorms came Rolling In The Deep last night and all I wanted to do was bake brownies while listening to Adele. You could say I was Set[ting] Fire To The Rain.
Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning and learned my One and Only queen’s first single from her album, 25, was just chillin’ in iTunes. And then I was smacked in the face with this:
Did she know that I was in a mood last night while baking up a storm, silently wondering when I would be able to sing along to a new song?
I said hi back and pre-ordered the album which is scheduled to be released on November 20th. So look out for a more detailed post about why I love Adele so much around then. It’ll probably be titled “Thanks for giving us this album”.
On to the brownies! These pair well with melancholy.
1 ½ sticks unsalted butter (3/4 Cup) 8 ounces chocolate chips 3 Large room-temperature eggs 1 cup light brown sugar ½ Cup granulated (white) sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla 1 Cup all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon salt
Your arm will be tired, just FYI.
It’s hard to resist a warm brownie after a night in with your feelings, that I know. Try your hardest to let them cool for at least an hour though, but they are actually better if they have had a chance to cool completely overnight.
These brownies are so good you’ll want to write a Love Song about them.
