So in the midst of the cookie baking party I had with myself the day before the bris, I was talking to a friend of mine, and she told me that she had just made a brownie recipe that I had pinned (someone other than me looks at that?!) and that they came out awesome. So it was apparent to me that when I made brownies, I should probably start with these. And from the sounds of it, I might not need another brownie recipe ever again!
"The Best Fudge Brownies"
From Yammie's Noshery
2 sticks of butter
2 1/4 cups of sugar
4 large eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups of cocoa powder (I used Dutch press)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups of flour
2 cups chocolate chips
Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan. I lined mine with parchment paper and then sprayed it with Pam.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the butter and sugar in a microwave safe bowl.
Heat in the microwave, stirring about every 30 seconds, until the mixture is bubbly and smooth (mine was smooth, but not so bubbly). You can also do this on the stove.
Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Mix together the cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and flour. I just sifted it into the butter mixture, in about 3 additions.
Add to the butter mixture, mixing until smooth.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for about 28 minutes. I baked mine for 25 minutes. They were delicious, but very gooey when they came out of the oven. They did set up nicely when the cooled.
