Everybody loves chocolate brownies! They are classic brownies that melt in your mouth and are chocolatey, fudgy and absolutely delicious. The smell of chocolate wafting through your house is comforting. This is an easy recipe that is great to share with friends.
The brownie is undoubtedly America's favorite bar cookie. The recipe for Brownies appeared almost 100 years ago. They were named brownies because of their dark brown color, not because of their chocolate content.
The classic recipe for Brownies included in Fannie Farmer's Boston Cooking School Cook Book uses butter, sugar, molasses, egg, flour, and pecan.
A delicious brownie recipe that my daughter loves and I make every time we want a delicious chocolate treat that enchants the house with its scent of chocolate.
This Brownie recipe does contain lots of chocolate semi sweet or bittersweet and unsweetened cocoa powder. So it has a deep chocolate flavor with a wonderfully moist texture.
Total Time: 55 min
115g unsalted butter
215g bittersweet chocolate
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa, natural or Dutch-process
1/4 tsp salt
1. Preheat oven to 180°F (350°F). Grease and line with parchment paper a 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 inch) square pan. In a bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder and salt. Set aside.
2. Using a double boiler or a bowl over hot water, melt the chocolate with the butter. Stir together until smooth.
3. Remove from heat, and stir sugar into warm chocolate mixture. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, stirring just until blended. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon or offset spatula.
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with a few moist crumbs. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. Cut into squares and serve at room temperature or chilled.
