I’m letting a secret out.
Keep it safe.
Are you ready? Are you sure? Then, here it is. . .
Everyone loves my brownies. So much so that I named them that name up there.
But, why are they so good?
They’re just chocolately enough without being overkill. They’re chewy and have perfect crispy edges and top. They’re super easy to make, and well, they come out exactly the same. . .every. single. time. . .and that deserves a baking hallelujah! Am I right, or what?!
There’s so many recipes out there that are quirky, but this one is consistent, and that’s why I’m a fan with everyone else, so I thought I’d share the love and the secrets. Now you can have a fan club, too. Yay!
- 1.5 cups white sugar
- 3/4 cups white flour
- 3 eggs, lightly whisked
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate (chopped)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch of salt (to taste)
Okay, now that you’ve got all those yummy ingredients, this is how you make MAGIC!
In a mixing bowl. . .or, in my case, a cooking pot, um, because I didn’t have a mixing bowl when I took these pictures and it’s India so that kind of stuff is hard to find. Geesh. Anyway, put in sugar, flour, cocoa powder, salt and stir together. Whew. Pretty easy, huh?!
Then, get another bowl (haha, this time I had one) and put your butter and your chocolate together and melt it over a double boiler on really low heat. . .stirring while it melts. . .
Once your butter and chocolate is melted take it off the stove and add the three whisked eggs, but hold your horses. . .don’t add them right away otherwise they will scramble in the hot chocolate goop. Let the mixture cool before adding the eggs.
Now, take that egg and chocolate mixture and add it to the other bowl and mix it together. And don’t forget to add the vanilla now. Apparently, I don’t have a picture of that all mixed together in the bowl, but after you mix it, pour it into a greased pan and it should look like this . . .
Put it in the oven at 350 degrees or (180 celsius) and bake for thirty minutes (30 min). They should come out looking a bit crinkly on top and need to cool at least a half an hour before you cut them. By the way, cracks on top are totally normal and a good sign.
You can decorate these squares of magical goodness with some powdered sugar, but it’s not necessary. They’re fan club worthy either way. . .
Don’t they look divine?! Well, they are! I assure you everyone that tries these from your kitchen will praise you like the god or goddess that you are. . .finally. Suddenly, favors and good moods and sweet promises will fall at your feet. But, can you handle it?
ENJOY the MAGIC of my Fan Club Brownies, people! Lovin’ you!!!
