Recipe 42 in the Solar Hot Pot
Solar Butterscotch Brownies
FINALLY recipe 42!! (smile) And we’re cooking recipe 43 today, too. We have a nice, sunny day today! (smile)
10:00 am--2/3 of a stick of butter and 2/3 c. oil: put in Solar Hot Pot, cover, set up Hot Pot facing the sun, set timer for 30 minutes.
Then prep by mixing:
1 generous cup brown sugar
2 t. vanilla
1 large egg
10:30 am--sugar mixture: add to oils and mix well.
Then add 1 2/3 c. flour and mix well again.
Then sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Set timer for 60 minutes.
11:30 am--check for done-ness; keep checking every 15 minutes until done.
The wind kept blowing the scent in my window while it was baking--smelled wonderful!
I originally had it set to bake for 2 hours, but it was overdone at 1 hour and 50 minutes! (So I changed the recipe to start looking for done-ness at only an hour.) Ours was still edible, though. (smile) Bit of a dark-browned taste and somewhat dry. Will have to try again. (smile)
We did beets in our other Hot Pot. (Have I mentioned how much I love doing veggies in the Hot Pot? SO easy and no nutrition lost to boiling water!!!)
We ate the beets along with the rest of lunch (eggs, toast, & fruit), enjoyed the Butterscotch Brownies for dessert, and started Sunbeam Meaty Beans for supper! Two Pots of it: “planned-overs” for an easy supper tomorrow, especially as there are clouds and rain predicted for tomorrow! It’s smelling very good right now! (See other post for Sunbeam Meaty Beans recipe coming soon.)
