    Recipe of the Week: As brought to you by Cooking Travians

    Hi All! We decided to start with the recipe that started the club, Buttermilk Brownies. This recipe is provided by birdlvr. I mentioned them in a chat one day and got multiple requests for the recipe. Now, it is a favorite of many. I hope you all enjoy them.

    Buttermilk Brownies Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

    2 cups flour (reg. enriched)
    2 cups sugar
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 cup butter
    1 cup water
    1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use dark cocoa powder)
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup buttermilk
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    Glaze

    1/4 cup butter
    3 tbls buttermilk
    3 tbls unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
    1/4 tsp vanilla extract
    3/4 cups coarsely chopped pecans (optional)

    In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

    In a medium saucepan, combine the 1 cup butter, water, and 1/3 cup cocoa powder. Bringe mixture just to boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add the chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed till thoroughly combined. Add eggs, the 1/2 cup buttermilk and the 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Beat for 1 minute. (batter will be thin)

    Pour into a greased and floured 10 x 13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 35 min, or till a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

    Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the 1/4 cup butter, 3 tbls cocoa powder, and 3 tbls buttermilk. Bring to boiling. Remove from heat. Add powdered sugar and the 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Beat till smooth. Stir in chopped pecans (if you are using them). Pour warm frosting over the warm brownies, spreading evenly. Cool in pan.

    This is a cake brownie. Is great with vanilla ice cream!

    Recipe of the Week: As brought to you by Cooking Travians

    Yay!!! Here we go again WEEK II

    ROASTED RATATOUILLE

    Roasting the Ratatouille, instead of stove top cooking it,
    preserves the shape of the veggies and makes the final
    presentation a lot nicer.

    This is really a simple, peasant dish. But is chock full of flavor.
    Don't be shy on the herbs and get creative about it When making this, i use whatever herbs i've got handy, and lots of it. The original recipe is a starting point really. lol I usually use fresh herbs from the garden, but if using dry herbs, remember to adjust the amounts

    It's a bit of chopping but assembling the dish is a snap.

    Ingredients:

    14 oz (420g) canned tomatoes - chopped
    1 teaspoon salt
    3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon sugar
    4 cloves garlic — minced
    1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 red onion — thinly sliced and separated into rings
    2 red peppers — cut into strips
    1 green pepper — cut into strips
    2 zucchini (courgette) — cut into half-inch rounds
    1/2 eggplant (aubergine) — cut into 1-inch cubes

    Preparation:

    PREHEAT oven to 350F/180C.

    MIX together the canned tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, sugar, parsley and thyme until combined.
    I sometimes add a lot of fresh herbs in here, depending
    on what I have available in the garden.

    OIL a baking dish with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.

    START by layering a quarter of the sliced onion in the bottom of the baking dish then top with a quarter each of red and green peppers, zucchini and eggplant.
    When pressed for time, i just toss all the veggies
    together and alternate layers with the sauce.

    SPOON a quarter of the tomato mixture and 1 tablespoon of olive oil over each layer.

    REPEAT the process to make 4 layers.

    COVER and bake for 1 hour, then uncover and bake for a further 15 minutes.
