Fudgy, crackly, sweet and with just a hint of These marijuana brownies are the best way to celebrate 420 (even though this post is written on 421, whoops) Better late than never!
This recipe will knock you off your socks (literally, but in a very good way) and taste absolutely amazing. A classic fudgy brownie, infused with cannabutter. No fancy ingredients are needed, just a simple, classic and delicious brownie with a kick.
Tips to make your cannabutter
Do not overheat your cannabutter – Controlling the heat of your butter is key to retaining the THC levels from your weed. THC needs a fat molecule to dissolve and release from its plant, which is why we infuse it into butter. However, overheating this mixture will cause the THC to evaporate and all your efforts will have been for nothing. So repeat after me, I shall not let my butter boil!
Controlling your butter temperature – Between 75 and 80C is the maximum heat you’d need to extract the THC from the plant. If you are not able to do this on your stove, switch to the Au-bain Marie method to control your temperature
Filter your cannabutter – I would highly recommend filtering your butter through a clean kitchen towel to ensure no pieces of the plant are left in your butter.
Calculating your THC levels
Before you start cooking, it’s good to realise that there is a limit to the fun of these marijuana brownies. This means that you should be careful with how much cannabis you add to your brownies. The dosage of 1,5gr Original Haze has been carefully calculated to not overdue the dosage and hit that sweet spot per portion.
Example: If you use 1gr of cannabis with 20% THC you got 200mg THC. If a brownie gives you 10 portions that means you have 20mg THC per portion.
How do I get fudgy brownies?
If you stick to the oven temperature and baking time in this recipe, you should be on the perfect path towards ultra fudgy brownies! These brownies are baked on a slightly lower oven temperature than usual because we don’t want to overbake that cheesecake swirl and want to keep the white of the cheesecake swirl actually white. It’s all about the contrast in colours with this brownie.
Won’t I lose that crackly top when the oven temperature is lower than usual?
Nope! That is why we fluff up the eggs and sugar until they are extra pale and fluffy, this is the part of the recipe which is so important to get that signature crackly brownie top, so don’t you dare skip this step….
How long can I store these brownies?
I don’t think these will last long, but these marijuana brownies are best kept in an airtight container in the fridge and will remain fresh, fudgy and delicious for at least 7 days. Just make sure the brownie is cooled completely before putting it in the fridge, we don’t want those condensation drops to drip all over your brownie..
Baking time and oven temperature
Baking time and oven temperature may vary depending on the oven you are using. All oven temperatures in my recipes are based on a conventional oven. If you bake with a fan assisted oven, turn down the temperature slightly as these ovens tend to become hotter than a conventional oven at that temperature setting. Ovens have the tendency to deviate from the temperature you set the oven to. I would highly recommend using an oven thermometer to ensure the inside of your oven is at the right temperature. My oven for example only goes up to 160C even though I turn it up to 230C
An oven that is too hot may result in an overbaked or burnt bake, and an oven that is too cold may result in underbaked and soggy bakes. Having the thermometer will not only help in getting the right temperature but also helps in determining the right baking time.
Other factors that may affect baking time
The size of your baking dish may also highly affect your baking time. A wider pan means that the batter spreads out more, resulting in it baking faster than in a smaller pan where the batter is thicker in height.
- 170gr unsalted butter
- 1,5gr original haze
- 1tbsp water
- 3 large eggs
- 200gr granulated sugar
- 175gr dark chocolate (70%)
- 90gr all-purpose flour
- 10gr cacao powder
- 1/4tsp salt
- 1tsp vanilla
- Start with making the cannabis butter. Grind your original haze into small pieces or use a pestle and mortar to break it down. Make sure to clean your pestle and mortar thoroughly before and after use.
- Slowly melt your butter. It is very important not to rush this process as overheating your cannabis will reduce its THC levels.
- Add your ground cannabis to your butter and on the lowest heat possible, let the cannabis infuse into the butter for 1 hour to make your cannabutter. Make sure the butter does not boil and stir consistently.
- Preheat your oven to 160C
- Place the chocolate in a bowl and lay a clean kitchen towel in a sieve, over the bowl of chocolate. Sieve your cannabutter over the chocolate. The remaining heat of the butter will melt the chocolate. Mix this until a smooth mixture and set it aside.
- In a medium bowl, whip your eggs, sugar & vanilla until pale and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Whipping the eggs is vital for that crackly brownie top.
- Add your chocolate mixture to your eggs and mix until combined.
- Fold in your flour, salt & cacao powder and stop mixing once it’s fully combined.
- Pour the brownie mixture into a buttered and lined square or brownie baking tin.
- Bake your brownie for 15-20 minutes, take it out of the oven and leave to cool completely.
- Once cooled, slice into 12 portions and enjoy!
