Chocolate Mascarpone Brownie

How time flew by.   Today is a joyous occasion in our life. Let me share this with  all  my co-bloggers and my well wishers.  This is  my daughter  (Sanjna).

It’s a milestone celebrations and yes she is 18 today. Looking back the past few years, I find myself trying to conjure up memories of  her  first steps, first words, first day of school and now in the university  and every year has been so special with such  wonderful memories.

Turning from 17 to 18 is one of the major changes in life because this is the transition being an adult for many years to come in the future.  We are in Goa celebrating her b’day.

Myself and hubby can  never forget  the indescribable joy that this amazing bundle of joy has given us every day for the last 18 years. Happy Birthday  darling! May God give you  good health and happiness always.

B’day  girl loves Chocolate and Mascarpone. Hence I was looking for a cake or a brownie with this and I came across this Chocolate Mascarpone Brownie  recipe from here .

Since  I had to carry it for her to  her hostel, all I could do was not add the chocolate ganache.  Believe me it was a super quick and easy bake. My daughter loved the brownie so much. My only regret was that  I could top it with some ganache, it would have been a yummy brownie. I have made changes to the recipe like the quantity of sugar.

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Yield: 15 2-inch brownies


For the brownies:
·         1 cup unsalted butter (plus more for preparing pan)
·         3 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
·         1 ½ cup granulated  brown or white/ sugar *
·         ½  cup cocoa powder
·         ½  cup mascarpone cheese, softened
·         3 large eggs, at room temperature
·         2 teaspoons vanilla extract
·         ½  cup all-purpose flour
·         ¼  teaspoon salt

I have added brown sugar, if you are making ganache then reduce the sugar to one cup.


To make the brownies:

Preheat oven to 325°. Butter an 8-inch square glass baking pan and set aside.

Place the butter and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at half power in 30 second intervals, stirring between each heating. Continue until both are completely melted.

Sift sugar and cocoa powder. Add to the butter/chocolate mixture. Beat in (by hand) the mascarpone, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth. Fold in flour and salt.

Pour batter into pan and spread evenly.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool in the  rack and enjoy this lovely brownie.
