Brownie Torte

This is one of the best LC desserts I have ever made. I took a regular
recipe and switched it to LC..You can double this. You could put this in a 9 x 13 dish..It easily serves 16..

Brownie Torte

Brownie Layer:

3/4 cup Carbquik
artificial sweetener to equal one cup
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. salt
1 stick of butter OR 1/2 stick of butter and 4 Tbs. coconut oil, softened
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350

Grease an 9 inch square pan

Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix for about one minute. Pour into a
prepared pan and bake until done..around 15-20 minutes.

Cool in pan. Then crumble brownies

Pudding Layer:

2 small packages of instant sugar free chocolate pudding
3 cups of Carb Countdown Milk

Creamy Layer:

1 1/2 cups of heavy cream, whipped OR
one 8 ounce Cool Whip (if you use that)

Toppings: crushed sf candy bar/chopped pecans

Assemble:

In the bottom of a serving bowl put 1/2 of the crumbled brownies
Then layer 1/2 of the pudding, then 1/2 of the whipped cream or Cool Whip
Repeat..ending with the whipped cream. Shave or crumble a sf candy
bar on top for color and add some chopped pecans if you like.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours..This recipe above will serve 8

The brownies alone sound marvelous....

I don't know if I can mess with this receipe. I LOVE brownies, but have never found a 'good' LC version, so I just went without. Several receipes have been posted but I didn't want to invest in all the 'extra' stuff to make them and not like them. Carolyn these sound great and they are basic. How do they taste alone?

(I may have to give half a receipe a try) OH...did I say that :blush:

Philly: They are really more like a cake..than fudgey brownie..I think they taste pretty
good by themselves..but with the pudding and whipped cream..they are out of this
world..

I made this for my non-lc mom and dad for Mother's Day, and we all agree: YUM!

Definately doesn't taste lc, and is kinda dangerous -- even though I was full, I wanted more and more...

This will be great for any future family/holiday gatherings with la c/non-lc mix! Thanks for sharing, Carolyn!

Lynn,

Glad you liked this delicious recipe..I think it's the best recipe ever..

I made this yesterday for Mother's Day..and I put it in a 2 quart souffle dish..and layered 3 layers..I served 9 servings out of the dish, and still have around 4-5 servings
left..

I made this for our Mother's Day meal too. Everyone loved it and I agree it doesn't taste low carb.

I do have a question/comment about the brownie part. My batter was so thick I had to add some water to it. I made a double batch and added 1/2 c water and it was still gloppy, not pourable. I spread it in the pan and baked it and it tasted fine. Is there suppose to be some liquid in the recipe?

Anyway, thanks for the crowd-pleasing recipe

actually the recipe on foodtv.com tells you to do that as well -- i purposely went to the site to find out after i watched that and i couldn't believe it because usually the recipes leave out all his mistakes!

I bet a pumpkin cake and butterscotch or vanilla pudding version would be good for the holidays. MMMMM Thanks for sharing

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! I did add 1/2 cup davinci to the brownie batter as part of the sweetner and this helped keep it from being so thick. I used real whipped cream with a packet of sweet-n-low instead of cool whip and it held up great.
Thanks for the recipe, Carolyn!

Glad you liked it Pam.. You're welcome for sure.

Yes, I think if I were doing another version, I would use the Almond Pound Cake..then
I might use a vanilla pudding and serve it with Splenda sweetened crushed frozen strawberries..Maybe layer the strawberries right in there..and one on the top..

You could even layer this in a trifle bowl for a GORGEOUS presentation! I bet even the Non LCers would eat it up!

This sounds WONDERFUL - but I'm confused. At the top of the recipe you mention a 9 x 13 pan - then in the middle of the recipe you mention a 9" square pan - which is it? Also - I've NEVER seen a 9" square pans - I'm sure they exist - but normally only see and own the 8" ones.

Barbara,
She mentions you can use the 9X13 pan if you double the recipe. Otherwise, use the square pan.
I've made this and it's very good!

Thanks - it's like after 1:00 a.m. and my eyes are tired - so I may have missed that.

Now that I've gone through all the "new posts" I think I'll turn in!

Hi..

Thanks Kim for explaining that..The brownie should be like a brownie..easy to break up..and if it's a bit dry..no biggie, because that pudding mixture will soften it up..

I made a single recipe today..and put it in a 2 quart casserole dish..It's foolproof and you can do it the night before, too.
