Step by Step: Best Chocolate Brownies
When it comes to brownies, you never know what to expect. There are infinite ways to make a brownie and just as many possible results. They can be chewy or gooey or flaky or cakey, rich and chocolatey or if you’re really lucky, all of the above.
If you’re like me, you prefer a flaky top, a gooey middle, chewy corners (the corners are the best part!) and most importantly, the most rich and delicious chocolate flavor you can imagine. And if you’re like me, then I’ve got a recipe for you:
Step 2: Pour chocolate mixture into large mixing bowl, add sugar…
Step 3: Add eggs to mixture one at a time while blending with a beater or fork.
Step 4: Prepare flour mixture by adding flour and baking soda together in a separate small bowl and then add dry ingredients to chocolate mixture.
Step 5: Grease and flour a 13x9x2-inch baking dish and pour mixture into dish.
Step 6: Slide it into the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes to an hour!
Step 7: Remove from oven and let cool.
Cut into bars and serve!
A very big thank you to my baking friend Jamie who graciously let me use her kitchen to create these wonderful brownies. If you’d like to make them yourself, the recipe is as follows:
Best Chocolate Brownies
These came out so incredibly rich and gooey that I put them on my “highly recommend” list. I chose to omit the walnuts and wound up baking for about an hour instead of 45 minutes.
1 C. Butter or margarine
4 oz. Unsweetened chocolate
2 C. Sugar
1 C. All purpose flour
2 tsp. Vanilla
1 tsp. Baking powder
1 C. Chopped walnuts
1 C. Semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a 2 quart saucepan melt butter or margarine and unsweetened chocolate over low heat. Transfer chocolate mixture to a large mixer bowl. Add sugar, mix well, add eggs, one at a time, beating just till blended. In a mixing bowl stir together flour and baking powder. Add to chocolate mixture along with the vanilla, mix well. Pour batter into a greased and floured 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts and chocolate pieces. Bake in oven at 325 degrees F about 45 minutes or till done. Let cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
