Double Chocolate Bourbon and Sorghum Brownie Recipe

With the Kentucky Derby season kicking off this weekend, I’d be remiss if I didn’t come up with something full of bluegrass goodness to share.

Kentucky is well known for its bourbon, but sweet sorghum has taken a bit of a back seat.  I think this is a shame as the two are such a natural pairing, so I decided to let sorghum share the dessert spotlight on Derby Day.

Whether your favored horse makes the run for the roses, one bite of this rich brownie chock full of Kentucky goodness will certainly have you feeling like a winner.

    Barb, this looks so delicious! I’m definitely going to have to try this recipe but I will substitute the sugar for another sweetener since I have removed sugar almost entirely from my diet.

      Certainly you can likely use a substitute and just have a bourbon brownie, which I’m sure will be nummy too. If you do make, let me know how it turns out.

      Best,
      Barb
