As you might remember from one of my earlier posts I am on a quest to find the perfect chocolate brownie. My first attempt was great, but a little too much like dense chocolate fudge than actual brownie, which isn’t my favorite but Alex loves them. Upon scouring the internet for more recipes I’ve stumbled upon what I think might actually be the perfect in-between to meet both of our brownie needs. I found this recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction, and you can find the original recipe here. I will also list it below.
1/2 cup (115g) salted butter*
8 ounces (228g) coarsely chopped quality semi-sweet chocolate*
3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar
1/4 cup (50g) packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons (80g) all-purpose flour (measure this accurately)
2 Tablespoons (11g) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
These came out fantastic. They’re satiate that part of me that just deeply craves chocolate and if I had had any chocolate chips in the house wheneverI made these I would have thrown them in. Sadly I was out, but I think it was good regardless. I actually rounded the flour up to a full cup to give them more of a cake-y texture and that was perfect.
Lots of Love,
