Today we bake brownies with fresh blueberries, which will give our dessert a unique taste and aroma. You will definitely like such summer pastries – rich chocolate dough with the pleasant sourness of berries. It turns out not only incredibly tasty but also a very beautiful dessert.
Useful Tips Making Blueberry Brownies
- Blueberries can be substituted for cherries or other berries that go well with chocolate.
- Don’t over stir the ingredients. Mix until no dry ingredients are visible.
- Here we will suggest you carefully mix the blueberries into the batter so that they do not break.
How to Serve Blueberry Brownies?
Cool the brownies, then refrigerate for a few hours. Cut into portioned squares before serving. You can also serve these brownies with hot chocolate and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?
Yes, this recipe works equally well with fresh or frozen berries. So, if you don’t have fresh blueberries, you can choose the frozen ones. You need to run frozen berries under some cool water and remove extra juice. You can use this juice for making smoothies or ice tea. Draining the juice is essential so the blueberry brownies turn out properly.
How to Know When Brownies Are Done?
When the blueberry brownies are done, you can notice that the edges begin to pull away from the pan. Another way is to touch the top with your finger lightly, and it will bounce back up. Lastly, the most famous method is to stick a toothpick in the center. It will come out dry if the brownies are done. If it has wet dough stuck to the toothpicks, you need to cook a little bit longer.
Can You Freeze Blueberry Brownies?
Yes, you can freeze these blueberries brownies! Let them cool after baking. Then you can either freeze the entire batch or put them in slices. We will suggest you throw pieces in the airtight container or for a quick snack.
Moreover, wrap the brownies up with tin foil or plastic wrap. Then put them all in a freezer-safe container. Defrost them before serving in the fridge overnight or on the counter until thawed. They will last up to 2 months in the freezer.
Health Benefits of Blueberries
Blueberries are an excellent source of vitamins, especially A, C, and B vitamins. There is a lot of manganese, magnesium, and calcium in these berries.
The dark color of blueberries is given by anthocyanins – natural antioxidants. Blueberries contain the most antioxidants. They are able to bind free radicals and protect against cell attacks. This reduces the risk of tumor formation. Anthocyanins also reduce the risk of heart, vascular, and eye diseases.
