Fat Toaders’ Caramel Goat Cheese Swirl Brownies
- Ready in: 20 minutes prep; 60 minutes to cook
- Serves: 8
- Complexity: medium
This recipe uses both Fat Toad's chevre and caramel to make a rich chocolate brownie. The slight tanginess of the chevre offsets the sweetness of the caramel and the chocolate.
- 6 Tbs unsalted butter
- 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups plain chevre
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg yolk
- 4–6 ounces of goat milk caramel (original, vanilla bean and coffee bean recommended)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease an 8 x 8 pan.
To make brownies, melt butter and chopped up chocolate in a double boiler. Heat until melted and combined. Take off heat and add sugar and vanilla. Let cool slightly. Whisk in eggs one at a time. Whisk the dry ingredients together—flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine with wet ingredients until fully incorporated.
To make goat cheese filling, cream together all filling ingredients with a blender or spoon.
Pour half of batter into bottom of pan. Using a spoon, spread half of the goat cheese on top of batter. Pour the remaining batter on top. Drop the rest of the goat cheese on top and swirl in with a knife. Drizzle caramel on top.
Bake for 50–60 minutes.
