BROWNIE TART WITH HONEY WHIPPED CREAM AND MINT BERRY SALAD

Recipe by Tyler Westerfield

Brownie

Serves 8

Ingredients 

  • 6 oz. milk chocolate, chopped
  • 11 Tbsp. unsalted butter, plus more for preparing pan
  • 1 C. sugar
  • ¾ C. dark brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. table salt
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tsp. strong coffee
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 C. flour
  • 1 C. additional chocolate or 1 C. nuts, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9” spring form pan with butter and line the bottom with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Melt chocolate and butter over simmering water. Side aside to cool.
  • In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add salt, vanilla, coffee, and eggs. Whisk until fully combined. Slowly add melted butter/chocolate mixture, continually whisking. Fold in flour, being careful not to overmix. Fold in extra chocolate or nuts if using.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 40-45 minutes, until brownie is just set. (Prepare honey whipped cream and mint berry salad while brownie bakes; recipes follow below.)
  • When brownie is done, a toothpick should come out of the center with small crumbs attached; do not overbake. Remove outer pan ring and set brownie on a wire cooling rack.
  • To assemble, remove brownie from lower pan and center on a round serving platter or cake stand. Spread honey whipped cream in an even layer on top of brownie, leaving a 1” border. Spoon mint berry salad over whipped cream, creating a mound in the center of the tart. Serve immediately.
