Indulge with Rich Fudgy Brownies

I may not have a slew of celebrities calling to get their hands on my latest batch of brownies (like they do at Brownies 90210), but with a bit of marketing I'd like to think I would. The recipe I use makes perfectly fudgy brownies, the kind that are slightly chewy but with a crisp top. We're talking absolutely delicious, brownie cook-off winning, people will be begging you for the recipe good. To learn my favorite brownie recipe, which I actually found in an issue of Fine Cooking magazine,

Rich Fudgy Brownies
From Nicole Rees in Fine Cooking

8 oz (1 cup) unsalted butter plus enough softened unsalted butter to grease the pan
3 oz (2/3 cup) unbleached all-purpose flour plus enough to line the pan
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large room temperature eggs [this seriously makes a difference]
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 oz (3/4 cup) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt

  1. Position rack in center of oven and heat to 350F.
  2. Butter and flour a 9" square pan, tapping out excess flour. [I decided to use cocoa powder instead of flour.]
  3. Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Remove pan from heat - whisk or stir in sugar, followed by all four eggs and vanilla.
  5. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Go slowly to keep the ingredients from flying out of the pan. Stir until smooth and uniform.
  6. Spread batter into prepared baking pan, smoothing so it fills the pan evenly.
  7. Bake until a toothpick or skewer comes out clean (there will be a few clumps clinging to it) — this will take about 40 minutes.
  8. Let brownies cool completely in the pan on a rack.

i made these the other day and they were extremely yummy and fudgy. i took them out after 30 minutes and let them cool. another 10 minutes and they'd be crispy! thanks for the perfect brownie recipe!

I made these tonight and they were amazing. :drool: I thought about topping them off with your Chocolate Fudge Glaze or a ganache but am glad I didn't. They were perfect and rich enough on their own.

This is my new favourite brownie recipe! I've altered it a bit though - 1 cup of cocoa & 1/2 cup of flour. I also make them as individual brownies in a muffin tray, reducing the cooking time to approx 20 minutes - each brownie is perfectly cooked.

mine turned out cakey too! i used hershey's dark chocolate cocoa, but that probably doesn't make a difference. i think 40 minutes was too long to cook them- they were sort of dry. oh well. practice makes perfect!

I don't know if I am just not as good a baker as yumsugar, but my brownies were more cakey than fudgey. i added icing though, and it made them to die for. soooo good :) and really easy to make, too!

These brownies are actually amazingly chocolatey, I've made them in a few cook-offs and everyone is always surprised that they're made with powder and not bars. also this particular recipe isn't scoopable like cookies (it's more like cake batter), so even if you could get the cooking temp right, I don't think it would work that well.

I wouldn't recommend turning these into cookies--first of all, the baking time would be drastically reduced as cookies are much smaller and thinner. My favourite brownie recipe contains a bit of espresso and cinnamon, and a lot more chocolate than this recipe. It is incredible! =)

I love brownie anything - Can you make these like you make cookies? Would that work, or would they lose their chewiness?
