Beer Baked

Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout is a dessert in a glass, but it’s also an amazing brew to bake with. Check out this delicious recipe from one of our awesome former co-workers, Mel.

Lugene BrowniesLugene Brownies
1 C Lugene Milk Stout
5oz (about 1 cup) Chocolate Chips (a mix of milk & dark is my favorite, but you could really use any kind)
3/4 C Unsalted Butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 C Brown Sugar
1 C Flour
1/2 C Cocoa powder
2 Eggs
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Open a bottle of Lugene and measure out one cup. This is perfect because it leaves you with a few oz left to drink while baking! Set the beer aside to flatten a bit. Fill a pot about a quarter of the way full with water and place over medium heat. Cut the butter up into 1/2 tablespoon chunks. In a glass bowl that fits nicely on top of your pot, mix the butter and chocolate chips together until fully melted. Carefully remove the bowl from the top of the pot using oven mits. Using a hand mixer or a whisk, beat in the sugar. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs. Temper the eggs into the batter. Mix in the vanilla and cocoa powder. Gently stir in the cup of Lugene. After the beer in fully incorporated, I like to beat the batter with my hand mixer on medium-high to activate the carbonation of the beer for about a minute. This makes for a lighter cake-like appearance, but still has the taste and texture of a brownie. Whisk in the flour. Pour batter into a lightly greased baking pan and bake for around 20 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean :)
