Amazing brownie recipe. I will never use brownie mix again. The recipe is so simple to use. I always thought making brownies from scratch would be hard. These are so tasty and gooey. And it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. I used my kitchenaid mixer, but I kept it on stir mode. I didn't want too many air bubbles in the batter. Love this recipe!
I made these brownies for a co-worker's birthday and they turned out perfect. I frosted the brownies with Coconut and Pecan Frosting (the traditional frosting for German Chocolate Cake). My co-worker loved the brownies because the flavors were a perfect balance. Additionally the frosting reminded him of what his mom made when he was a child, so they had an additional meaning for him! This recipe has become my go to, it replaced the one I since I was in middle school (back in the day when it was called jr high). This recipe deserves more than 5 stars!!!!
I will never buy brownie mix again! These brownies were so simple, so delicious and full of rich chocolatey goodness. Yum!!
Agree need to use good quality chocolate bars. For me,Ghirardelli® 100% Cacao is a very good choice and it is readily available in most medium-to-upscale retail markets. <br/><br/>I doubled the recipe into a 13x9 dark Pyrex dish and baked for 35 minutes. Perfectly moist and chewy, decadently chocolate.
These brownies are amazing! And really simple to make. I used one medium/large size pyrex mixing bowl (plus a few "mise en place" small bowls) and mixed by hand with a sturdy spatula. I only had a 9x9 pan... but that ended up working out great. Since these are rich tasting/very chocolatey I was able to cut them into small 2-bite size squares (~24) and I only baked them for about 20-22minutes. If you are one of those people who do not like "dark chocolate", then I'm afraid these brownies will be too strong for you. I would substitute with semi sweet baking chocolate & cut back on the additional sugar amount.
Lacking cocoa powder, I was seeking out recipes that called for unsweetened chocolate squares which I strangely had on hand. Amazingly, I had all of the other pantry ingredients as well and ended up making this recipe on a whim -- before anyone had uploaded a photo. This recipe is rich, decadent, oh-so-chocolately and actually super simple to make.
I'm not a wildly talented baker but I nailed it on the first try. Brownie-wise, I prefer them slightly gooey so I only baked these for the minimum 30 minutes and they were perfect. Plus, they are so indulgent, I really couldn't eat more than one or two -- so portion control was naturally built in. Great stuff! Thanks Saguaro!
PS -- If you served these while still slightly warm over vanilla ice cream, it would be beyond.
These are the best brownies I've ever had. They are moist and not too sweet!
Excellent. I used gluten free flour blend and Dove Chocolate Discoveries baking chocolate. Used a Pampered Chef brownie pan (the kind where you get individual brownies for us corner lovers). I baked for 25 min.
