A Sweet Ending: Classic Fudge Brownies



If we’re being honest here, who doesn’t love a good brownie? Cookies, cakes and pies aside, brownies are a classic dessert staple that always goes over well with a crowd. I love a moist, dense, fudge brownie for myself. If you happen to be on the same brownie team as me, follow along, because you are in for a treat!

 

Ingredients (For 9 servings):

 

8 ounces chocolate, good quality

¾ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1¼ cups sugar

2 eggs, at room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla

¾ cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon salt

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Chop the chocolate into chunks. Melt half and reserve the other 4 ounces.
  3. Mix butter with the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Incorporate eggs and vanilla for 1–2 minutes.
  4. Whisk in reserved chocolate (NOTE: be sure that the melted chocolate isn’t too hot, or else the eggs will begin to cook).
  5. Sift in flour, cocoa powder and salt.
  6. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet, being careful not to overmix.
  7. Fold in remaining chocolate chunks.
  8. Transfer batter into a well-greased brownie pan and cook for 30 minutes. Let cool completely.
