I could not believe my eyes yesterday. We’ve had this blog for 3 1/2 years, so every time I ponder what to blog about I check our recipe page to make sure that Jane and I have not posted something too similar. So many years of having a blog means sometimes I forget what’s in our recipe arsenal.
Ya know what’s not in there? Brownies. We have a delicious recipe for brownie cookies, but no traditional brownies. Not a cakey one, not a gooey one, not a single brownie. How could we have gone so long without sharing a recipe for such a classic? How is it that I haven’t made a single brownie in 3 1/2 years. Shameful.
So I bring you these gooey chocolate treats, because everyone should have a brownie recipe that they can rely on for bake sales or when you just need to have some chocolate. Sorry it took so long!
ooey gooey brownies
makes 9 brownies
recipe from King Arthur
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon instant coffee, optional
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In small saucepan over low heat, melt butter completely. Stir in the sugar and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Making sure that it doesn’t come to a boil. Pour butter mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer and beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined. Slowly add the flour until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips until just mixed throughout the batter. Spread into a greased 9×13 baking pan and bake for about 30 minutes, until a tester comes out mostly clean. The edges should be set and the center should still look slightly wet, but not under-cooked. Cool completely before cutting. Serve at room temperature.
