Panko-Encrusted Wasabi Brownies
Could a panko-encrusted wasabi brownie really be the brownie recipe for everyone?
Servings: 9 brownies
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 5 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 teaspoons wasabi paste
- 1/2 cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup panko
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Butter and lightly flour an 8" square baking pan.
Mix all ingredients except the chocolate chunks and the panko in a medium-sized mixing bowl until fully combined.
Fold in chocolate chunks.
Pour into prepared baking pan and use a spatula to evenly spread the batter.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and evenly distribute the panko on top of the partially-cooked brownies.
Return to the oven and bake for another fifteen minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry.
Ideally, you should wait for them to cool prior to cutting (they'll cut more cleanly), but then you'd miss the joy of hot brownies. So, I say, make a mess and eat some right away!
