Easy red velvet brownie recipe
If you’re in the mood for something rich and chocolatey, these red velvet brownies are the perfect treat.

And because they’re made with simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen, they’re also incredibly easy to make.
Vinegar in red velvet brownies. Really?
Yes really! When I first heard about this, I thought that can’t be right, but when I did my research, all the recipes included white wine vinegar. I decided to give it a try anyway, and I’m glad I did! The vinegar actually enhances the chocolate flavour and gives the brownies a deeper red colour. And despite my fears, the texture of the brownies was still perfect – moist and dense, with a slight crumb.
Make sure you use white wine vinegar, not the ordinary vinegar you add to chips! Overall, I was very impressed with how well the vinegar worked in this recipe. If you’re looking for a delicious red velvet brownie that’s out of the ordinary, give this recipe a try!
