I love brownies! I think everyone loves brownie, right? Brownies are my all time favorite dessert especially, a dark chocolate fudge brownie inside and crispy on the edges. Serve with whipped cream and vanilla ice-cream. It couldn’t be anything better than this and I wish I could have it every day. Too bad, when I went to a bakery shop I didn’t find something that I like. I hate instant mixes. So, this is the recipe from my several attempts that I’d like to share and hope you y’all enjoy as much as I do.
- 4 Large eggs
- 1 1/4 cups Double-Dutch Dark Cocoa or Dutch-process cocoa
- A pinch of salt
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- 1 tsp Espresso powder
- 1 tbs Vanilla extract
- 1 cup Unsalted butter (2 sticks)
- 2 cups Sugar
- 1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
- 1 cup Chocolate chips
- 1 cup Chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Crack the 4 eggs into a bowl, and beat them at medium speed with the cocoa, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla for about 1 minute.
Melt butter in a saucepan on low heat until butter is melted then add sugar. Stir them lightly until combined and temperature reaches 110ºF - 120ºF using a thermometer (Do not boil or make it bubbling).
Add the hot butter/sugar with egg/cocoa mixture, stirring until smooth.
Add the flour, chips, and chopped walnuts stirring until smooth.
Grease a 9" x 13" pan with butter then pour the batter into a pan.
Bake the brownies for about 30-35 minutes, insert into the center with a toothpick the brownies should feel set on the edges, and don’t worry if the center is still very moist, but not uncooked. Remove them from the oven and let it completely cool on a rack before cutting and serving. (The center of the brownies will set at room temperature. I recommend to let them cool for a while but do not put them in a refrigerator).
Serve with Ice-cream and whipped cream.
