I have to put this recipe out and tell my son-in-law it is for him. He is the only person we know who goes crazy for saskatoons. Victor, this is for you.
- 1 1/2 cups salted butter
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 cups cocoa powder
- eggs, beaten
- 1 1/2 cups flour
To make the brownies, melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat until thoroughly blended.
Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar until well mixed. Add the cocoa powder, stirring until smooth.
Add the eggs and stir well. Now add the flour and stir just until combined. Do not over mix. Pour into a prepared 9 x 13 pan.
Cream Cheese Topping
- 2 pkgs. cream cheese, softened and cubed
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
In electric mixer, place all n ingredients in the bowl and beat until smooth.
Drop by generous spoonfuls on top of the brownie mixture, followed by the sauce (recipe following). Take a butter knife and swirl the cream cheese mixture and sauce together, creating a pretty marbled look.
- 2 cups fresh or frozen saskatoon berries
- 1 cup cold water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 tbsp. cornstarch
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
In a saucepan place the berries an 3/4 cup of water and bring to a slow boil over a medium heat, cooking for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally so as not to burn the bottom the saucepan.
Whisk briskly the cornstarch with the remaining 1/4 cup of water and then rapidly whisk into the berries.
Stir in the lemon juice, cooking until it thickens. remove from he heat. This should be the consistency of a pie filling. If you must add a bit more cornstarch.e for 45-50 minutes until the topping begins to brown at the edges. The center will still be a bit wobbly. Remove from the oven and let set and cool for about 5 hours.
Store any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days or in the freezer for about 3 months.
*Note. this recipe was in the Look magazine so enjoy.
