The Perfect Brownie

The Perfect Brownie

I love brownies. Seriously what's not to like about a chewy, chocolatety bit of heaven? Jamison was never a fan before Celiacs reared it ugly head (I know, I know...My culinary talents are lost on that boy! ;oP) so I didn't make them that often, but when I saw this recipe at I Am Baker and the resulting pictures I was immediately drawn to the brownie goodness!

As you'll see I didn't make them exactly the same, but trust me these are really, really amazing, really, really awesome brownies! If you're a fan of brownies then you really have found the perfect brownie. They are chocolatey, chewy and just perfect! What's not to like about that?

What You'll Need:
2/3 cup of butter
1 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips
1 3/4 cups of organic cane sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour

In a medium sized sauce pan melt butter and chocolate chips stirring often until completely smooth. Set aside and let cool.

Place oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 F.

Mix together sugar, vanilla, eggs and sea salt and beat on high for 5 minutes. Slowly add cooled chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and stir until mixed. Add flour a little at a time and mix until just incorporated.

Pour batter into an 8 X 12 inch baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for 45 minutes until brownies are slightly crackly on top. Let cool and cut and serve.

Notes: You could add chocolate chips to the batter or nuts, but really they are just perfect as they are!

This is REALLY close to the recipe I use that was posted years ago in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. The proportions are a little different, but I'm sure the net result is the same. I sent the last 1/3 or so of a pan into work with my DH (I'd baked them as a thank you and couldn't transport all of them to the recipient, and really didn't need them in the house any more), and the verdict came back: not really *sweet*, but VERY rich. Score! :D

The version I use came with a recipe for ganache to put on top: heavy whipping cream, a bit of butter, more chocolate chips. You can either just pour it on and let set OR chill and whip it to pipe it on. Sooooo decadent....

Thanks Megan!

Oh a ganache would be fabulous! I may have to try that!
