Hey there! If you're looking to make some delicious cannabis-infused brownies using real flower, you've come to the right place. I'm here to guide you through the process step by step, so let's get started!
First things first, you'll need a few key ingredients and tools. Here's what you'll need:
- 1/2 cup of cannabis-infused butter (also known as cannabutter)
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- Optional: 1/2 cup of chopped nuts or chocolate chips for added texture and flavor
- Mixing bowl
- Whisk or electric mixer
- Baking dish (8x8 inches works well)
- Cooking spray or additional butter for greasing the baking dish
- Oven preheated to 350°F (175°C)
Now that you have everything ready, let's move on to the step-by-step process:
1. Start by greasing your baking dish with cooking spray or butter. This will prevent the brownies from sticking to the dish.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well until the ingredients are fully incorporated.
3. In a separate bowl, sift together the cocoa powder, flour, and salt. This will help remove any lumps and ensure a smooth texture in your brownies.
4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in dense brownies.
5. Now it's time to add the star of the show – the cannabis-infused butter! Melt the butter in a saucepan or microwave, and then add it to the brownie batter. Mix well to evenly distribute the cannabutter throughout the mixture.
6. If you'd like to add some extra texture and flavor, now's the time to stir in the chopped nuts or chocolate chips.
7. Pour the batter into the greased baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
8. Pop the dish into the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on the brownies, as baking times may vary depending on your oven. You'll know they're done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
9. Once the brownies are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool in the dish for about 10 minutes. This will allow them to set before you cut them into squares.
10. Finally, it's time to enjoy your homemade cannabis-infused brownies! Remember to start with a small portion, as the effects of edibles can take some time to kick in. And as always, consume responsibly.
There you have it – a simple and delicious recipe for cannabis-infused brownies using real flower. Feel free to experiment with different strains and quantities to find the perfect balance for your taste and desired potency. Happy baking!
