Gingerbread brownies


  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (356ο F) set to fan.

  • In a bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a mixer’s bowl, beat the butter with the sugar and molasses with the whisk attachment at medium speed, for 2-3 minutes, until they are homogenized.
  • Add the egg, yolk, vanilla extract, and beat for 1 more minute until the eggs are absorbed.
  • Lower the speed and add the mixture of the solid ingredients.
  • Beat for a few more seconds, until the ingredients are homogenized, and then remove the bowl from the mixer.
  • Spread the mixture into the baking pan and press with your hands until its surface is flat.
