Gluten-Free Deep Dish Hot Fudge Brownies for Two for #SundaySupper

#SundaySupper is helping you get ready for Valentine’s Day with an entire menu of recipes for two. Whether you are looking to make a special meal for just you and your sweetie, are having a good friend over, or are cooking for yourself and don’t want to have a ton of leftovers, we’ve got you covered. And I am bringing dessert with these rich and fudgy, ooey gooey Gluten-Free Deep Dish Hot Fudge Brownies for Two. And as with most of my gluten free recipes, I’ve got a fairly simple ingredient list and they’ll be loved by everyone!

Recipes for two are a brilliant idea if you are planning a date night in. Often these special meals require a bit more work or perhaps more expensive ingredients, so paring it down to serve just you and a special someone make sit easier and more economical. Plus, dessert for two means I don’t have a bunch leftover in my freezer, which still is home to several of these and these because I made wayyyy too many Christmas cookies.

As a food blogger, I have a love/hate relationship with holidays. Yes, I do savory and sweet recipes here, but when it comes to holidays, I want to make treats. And when I make dessert, well, as I told you the other day, I eat the dessert. Even the failures (this was THE BEST FAILURE EVER!!).  I also take 87 billion photos and then have to pare them down and edit them. And then I still want to post them all. And then I snap a few for Instagram and by the time I’m ready for the “real” photos shoot, this lovely perfectly puffed, crackly-topped brownie…

Totally sunk in the middle. But you know what, these are still a total success because not only did I achieve crackly-top brownie perfection, these brownies also had the perfect fudgy (not cake) texture, plus the gooey hot fudge center that I was going for. I mean, when you have hot fudge IN THE MIDDLE of your brownie, you gotta expect a little collapsing, right? If it bothers you that much, fill it up with ice cream.

Actually I have one of these brownies in the freezer with a scoop of ice cream in it because I was going to include some photos of that too, and, shhh, food blogger photography tip – if you don’t want your ice cream to melt all over your brownie while you are taking pictures (and undoubtedly tending to a whining preschooler or crying baby mid-photo shoot), don’t put the ice cream on the hot brownie. It’ll look the same even if it’s frozen. Of course, then you have a week like I did with three snow days for the aforementioned preschooler, and an insufficient amount of napping leading to an excessive amount of crankiness for the aforementioned baby and, you know, the planned a la mode photo shoot never happens.

Also, then I’d have more photos to edit, which requires even more time that I don’t have. And then the ice cream would be melting, so naturally I’d have to immediately consume said brownie. Which would mean that I would have consumed two of the Gluten-Free Deep Dish Hot Fudge Brownies.. for two, since naturally The Bug and I had to taste test and ice cream-less one shortly after I took the photos, you know, just to make sure I had achieved hot fudge center perfection.

Mission: Accomplished

So eat them straight out of the oven, top them with ice cream – your call. Just make them. They take no time, you won’t have an entire pan that you pick at for the rest of the day week. And as far as the gluten free aspect of it – don’t let that stress you out. Look at this ingredient list – nothing crazy. And use the rest of the brown rice flour to make cauliflower wings, since that totally cancels out the brownies.

    Who in the world can quibble about a well in the middle of a brownie filled with fudgy goodness?

    Thank you for sharing the recipes for these gluten-free wonders, Brianne.

    Hope your Valentine’s Day includes a gift of rest for a hardworking blogger mom =)

    Oh my! Just looking at that gooey chocolate center made my mouth water. Great job on the photos and I can relate to what we have to do for the photo sessions.

  3. says

    Oh, yeah, these are winners!!! Ice cream is a PAIN to photograph, but thank goodness these brownies are gorgeous (and perfectly gooey) even without it :)

  4. says

    You had me at gluten free, but I think these are the best darn brownies I’ve ever seen – pinning to make immediately! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  5. says

    Your post reminds me of my life right now. I use to have a goal for my blog that I would get better with my photo shoots but the older my daughter got and the more I started working the less time I had for my blog. I finally decided to not worry about the photography, that will come when I have time again in my life. (When ever that is) At least you know you have a sneaky treat in the freezer for those crazy days when you need some chocolate.

    LOVE the advice on “if the sunken center bothers you fill it with Ice Cream”. Since I am carb restricted due to diabetes I’d fill it with whipped cream…. looks amazing!!!!!

  7. Tiffany says

    Hi – thank you so much for sharing – these look delicious! I was wondering if you thought I might be able to prepare these earlier in the day and put them in the fridge in the ramekins and then bake during dinner? I definitely plan to make them for Valentine’s day but would prefer not to interrupt the evening by making dessert! Thanks!

    • says

      Hmm, I haven’t tried that. Not sure how well it would work because the melted chocolate would re-solidify, but perhaps you could slightly underbake, then warm them up in the microwave or for a few minutes in the oven.

  8. Nicole says

    This looks amazing. I really want to try these but my son is allergic to almonds. Is there something I could use instead of the almond flour. I am new to gluten-free baking and really don’t know much about the different flours yet.

  9. Cathy says

    Hi, Just wanted to let you know I’m sharing your wonderful recipe in a Gluten-Free Recipe RoundUp tomorrow! Have a terrific weekend!

    How did I miss these?! They look sooo good! Definitely going to make these at some point! Think I’ll try a totally grain-free version and see if that works. And hey, I love the pictures and how they came out! :D
