Gluten Free Lunch Lady Brownies are the perfect combination of cakey and fudgy brownies, and the frosting is out of this world. Being the Lunch Lady can’t have been a bad gig when you were serving up these treats.
Brownies are a dessert that everyone in my house loves. The thing is, there are so many different kinds of brownies.
Some like Sheet Pan Brownies, or Farmer Brownies, because they are like a thin, moist chocolate cake topped with frosting.
Others prefer rich, fudgy brownies. I have a recipe that I have perfected, but haven’t shared here yet. Sorry about that – I’ll put it on my list of ‘things to do’. (Once you’ve baked a batch, you’ll hopefully forgive me for holding out on you for so long.)
These gluten free Lunch Lady Brownies are a perfect marriage of the two kinds of brownies, if you ask me.
They are a moist, rich brownie, with a nice tight crumb. And that layer of chocolate frosting on top – well, that’s really the icing on the cake.
You prepare the frosting while the brownies are baking and spread it on while they are still warm, and it forms a nice crust on top once it has cooled. It is just perfection.
Be sure to check your brownies for done-ness while they are baking by inserting a toothpick in the middle. If no crumbs stick to the toothpick, the brownies are done. And if crumbs are sticking to the toothpick, give it another 2 minutes and test again.
Over-baked brownies will still be delicious, but they will be drier than perfectly baked brownies.
