Honeybuns - Heathcliff Brownie

By 15:42 , ,

After driving EVERYBODY in my office mad doing my best  tone deaf impression of Kate Bush. I finally sat down and ate the Heathcliff brownie from Honeybuns, it certainly kept me quiet for a few minutes!

This is up there in one of the best brownies I have ever eaten. Gluten free brownies I do feel have been really overdone. You can bet wherever you go that offer gluten free options, there will be a brownie. Not wanting to sound ungrateful that big chains are thinking about us, but why do they assume that all coeliac's eat are brownies!?!?!

Now I am assuming one of two things. That A) Browines just sell really well and this is why I am flooded by them everywhere I turn and Honeybuns have produced them to keep up with competitors. Or B) Honeybuns saw all those brownies and thought to themselves 'let's show them how it's done'. I like to think it's the latter.

What makes this brownie so one of a kind is the use of dark chocolate. Dark chocolate and I would get married if we could. I love the richness that darker chocolate can give which you cannot achieve with a milk chocolate. Orange has been infused in the brownie, making a perfect paring, the sharp  bitter chocolate with a sweeter orange hit is a flavour I really enjoy.

The brownies texture was beautifully moist and had the gooey centre which is one of the key attributes that have to be present in a brownie to make it a memorable one for me! You wouldn't believe how many dry brownies I have tried. The chocolate chunks and orange peel I found gave a dense chewiness to the soft brownie, which adds an extra texture you don't always find in a brownie.

I would say that this brownie is so decadent that it could be served with ice-cream as a dessert, and I would recommend that if you are hosting a dinner party buying the tray bake for this purpose. It does not taste gluten free, so none of the guests would know the difference and you can join in! I think heating this brownie would be very tasty too!

If you are interested at the award winning Heathcliff brownie or any of the Honeybuns range, you can find them here!
