Blueberry Brownies

Blueberry Brownies

I feel like many other bakers have this problem, but I’m going to complain about it anyway haha. Isn’t it so nice when you bake a batch of brownies (that actually turn out well) and stick them in the fridge to cool overnight? Sounds great right? Then you can hop out of bed in the morning and take some pictures. At least that’s the idea…see I live in a house with four other people, aka my lovely family, which means that this morning when I woke up, someone had taken my brownies out of the refrigerator and basically went all angry velociraptor on the pan. Yep, they even left the knife sticking out haphazardly. I assessed the damage and decided there was at least enough salvageable brownie to take pictures with, but seriously (I’m looking at you, sisters) STAY AWAY FROM MY BROWNIES at least until I’ve taken pictures.

Has anyone else ever had this problem? My sisters have also been known to take slices of cake or quickbread that my parents intended for a party so it’s pretty much dessert Jurassic park in my house haha. Although I’m pretty sure that velociraptors didn’t eat sugar…

Anyway so I know these sound kind of weird. Who puts blueberries in brownies, Rebecca?! They’re actually awesome though. Think along the lines of chocolate covered blueberries–I know I think those are pretty addictive. Yep, don’t be afraid of the weirdness–embrace it ;).

    • I figured it was probably a pretty common occurrence in houses where bakers live haha. Maybe I should be a little bit firmer with the dissuasion next time they try to eat my treats before I take pictures ;).

  1. I was actually thinking of putting blueberries in brownies, but wasn’t sure how that would turn out – reading this post has given me a boost of confidence that I should do it! Luckily, I haven’t had problems with people scarfing down food before I get around to taking pictures of it (my boyfriend and family members are thankfully very patient), but I did have that problem in college with my roommates, where my food (and clothing!) would just magically disappear…

    • Glad my experimentation was helpful! I was worried about the results myself haha. You’re also very lucky that your boyfriend and family members don’t feel like it’s necessary to attack whatever you’ve made directly out of the oven :). To be honest I think I’ll have MORE luck with my roommate!
