These brownies are rich, fudgy and with a unique tartness that helps bring out the flavor of chocolate in the brownie. The Prickly Pear Jam adds to the fudginess of the brownie and the recipe in total is fairly stress-free and easy. It’s a universal truth that chocolate and fruit pair beautifully well together and I am simply taking that concept into what I do best – a baked good. Brownies had my name on it the other morning, and I thought to myself, “instead of licking the jam off the spoon, let me do something more productive!”.
This brownie is slightly different in recipe as compared the regular brownies; I increase the amount of flour simply because the jam tends to overtake in texture. I also have reduced the sugar quantity – the jam has enough sugar to compensate. I would even go so far as to reduce the amount of sugar to ¾ cup since I like the bitterness of cocoa. However, I’ve given you 1 cup for regular taste buds in the recipe below.
