Cooking with Kakadu Plum – Brownie Recipe
Want to know how you can incorporate one of Australia’s unique fruits that are packed with Vitamin C into your dish? This classic brownie recipe with a zingy twist will leave you wanting more after the first (or even third!) serving. The original recipe calls for whole, pitted Kakadu plums which may be hard to source. We’ve substituted them for Kakadu Plum Powder
Tips for Buying Kakadu Plum Powder
Kakadu Plum seeds are almost half the size of the fruit itself and don’t have the same amount of nutrition as the actual flesh of the fruit. Some suppliers don’t de-seed them to create more product volume when they’re ground into a powder so, ensure that you look out for products that are de-seeded to get the most nutritional value out of them. Our Kakadu Plum Powder is seed-free, which you can buy online here.
The Kakadu Plum Powder we supply here at Australian Food Services is seed-free, and you can purchase them here.
- 3 Tbsp of Kakadu plum powder
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- ½ cup caster sugar
- ½ cup water
- 300g dark chocolate
- 250g unsalted butter
- 5 free-range egg yolks
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp ground Wattle-seed
- 100g plain flour
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
- Combine the Kakadu plum powder with the lemon juice and caster sugar in a medium saucepan with ½ cup water. Let it simmer for 30 minutes on medium heat, until thickened and reaches a syrup-like consistency. Set aside to cool.
- Preheat oven to 160C.
- Gently melt the chocolate and butter on a double boiler and stir until well incorporated. Transfer to a new bowl and set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
- Ensure the chocolate mixture has cooled. Whisk in the yolks, brown sugar and wattle-seed with the chocolate mixture.
- Sift in the flour, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda and stir until the batter becomes smooth.
- Fill a 27cm x 17cm pan lined with baking paper. Generously drizzle the Kakadu plum syrup on top and marble gently with a knife.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes, until firm to touch halfway between the edges and the centre of the pan.
- Leave to cool and cut into bars. Serve with ice cream or enjoy on its own!
