Brownies. They’re always a crowd’s favourite. And it’s not just children, teens, adults, mums, dads and grannies who go crazy about those brownies! Even celebrities do! And don’t be fooled with their off screen perception, even the brightest stars in Hollywood do indulge. And when they do, they often choose brownies!
Check out these popular stars who love brownies and see if your favourite celebrity is here!
Jessica Alba is one of the actresses who you wouldn’t think would have a big love for sweets. But she isn’t the type of woman who starves herself just to conform to the Hollywood’s ideal. ‘My happiness isn’t dictated by what other people want or how they see me’, she said on an interview with Now Magazine UK. Aside from being a brownie fanatic, she’s also a coffee-holic.
When Jessica was pregnant, she admitted to have craved for “new, heavenly” thing called ‘slutty brownies’. These sweet, gooey brownies are made by covering the bottom of a lined pan with cookie dough, then putting a layer of Oreo cookies, and pouring brownie batter over the whole thing. Sounds a little too much for us at Dello Mano but having been pregnant twice, I know not to get in the way or argue with a pregnant woman! Besides, recent research may even go as far as to support Jessica and her drive for chocolate.
His being vegan did not prevent the The Hunger Games star from enjoying brownies. Two years ago, he shared his all-time favourite Vegan brownie recipe with VegNews. Yes. You read it right – vegan brownies! His recipe calls for quinoa flour instead of all-purpose flour, Goji berries, chia seeds and cacao powder. All these seemed out of the park for a brownie, but according to many people who tried them, Woody Harrelson’s vegan brownies are phenomenal.
Envied by many, but no one would think that she indulges in sweets sometimes. To show her support for the Big Cake Bake – a charity event for deaf children and their families, this gorgeous fitness fanatic shared her gluten-free brownie recipe. Aside from helping out the charity, Lucy also wanted to spread the message that healthy eating can be fun, and sweet. Go Lucy!
In 2013, this award-winning Scottish actress shared a very easy brownie recipe which she has used for years, and is a favourite of her mum who has dementia. Her brownies, with chopped walnuts in, were served during the Dementia UK celebrity tea party in the same year.
When it comes to cooking, we all agree that Gordon Ramsay is one of the most well known. His restaurants have been awarded a total of 15 Michelin stars and currently hold 14. Ramsay is a big fan of blondies – the no-chocolate counterpart of brownies. ‘I find them a bit more subtle in flavour and they make a great end to a meal, especially with a few chewy cranberries thrown in for texture.’ he said on his interview with Daily Mail UK. Like Lucy, he also shared his treasured blondie recipe in support of the Big Cake Bake.
Snoop Dogg isn’t your average rapper. Since his career started in 1992, he has successfully made a name not just in the world of funk, but also in the film industry. In 2009, Snoop Dogg made a very surprising appearance at Martha Stewart’s variety talk show, and baked a batch of holiday-themed brownies. You know what he calls his brownies? Green brownies. In the show, it was clear that the recipe doesn’t contain weed. But as he tells Martha, the most important ingredient in the Green brownie should have “No sticks, no seeds, no stems.” Hmmm…
Brownies are really a wonderful treat that most people enjoy for snack, dessert or just about any time of the day. And it’s not just ordinary people who love these delicious heavenly chunks of chocolate, even stars do!
