Brownies (Fudgie)
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chopped and divided
  • 12 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 and ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Generously grease or a line a standard 8"x8" baking pan and set aside.
  • Melt half of the chopped chocolate and set aside. Reserve the other half of the chopped chocolate for later.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, mix the melted butter with the sugar on medium speed until smooth and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix for another 1-2 minutes. The mixture should be a pale yellow color.
  • Add in the melted chocolate and mix well. Then slowly fold in the flour, cocoa powder and salt until everything just comes together and a few dry streaks remain. Fold in the remaining chopped chocolate and mix until no dry streaks remain. Do not over mix.
  • Transfer the batter to your prepared baking pan and bake in your preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Do not over bake the brownies. The sides should be set and the center can look slightly underdone.
  • Cool completely before slicing and serving. For an even fudgier texture, chill the brownie sin the refrigerator so they solidify more - the centers will be very fudge-like.
