That's what happens when there are just no more available pans in the house.
I threw all the ingredients into a bowl (no one needs to know that I used the same bowl that I used to mix the challah dough, and I may not have really cleaned the bowl in between recipes, so let's just keep that between us) and mixed away. And when I looked around for my brownie pan, or any pan really, I found that there were none. Several, I noticed, were in the sink, with a bunch more in the fridge, already being used.
I saw my trusty - and very fleishigs - silicone muffin tins. Hmm. Fleishig brownies? I use these pans to make meatloaf muffins all the time. I didn't think the brownies would come out tasting like meat (they didn't) but I felt kind of weird making a dessert that was not just non-dairy, but actually all the way fleishigs. But. It was 1pm, school pickup was looming and really, who cares?
And you know what?
These brownies baked so well in these pans - first, each brownie is like an end piece with all the crunchy edges, so that's a win right there.
And third, they're just cute.
I'll just be sure to mark the freezer bag of brownie cupcakes as meat so no one eats one with, I don't know, some ice cream, (although yum!) and I think we have a new way of brownie baking in this house.
I wonder if these silicone pans come in other colors? I already have red ones for meat and blue muffin pans for dairy. Pareve ones would be awesome.
I know what I am buying with my next set of Amazon Visa points. So fun!
