I’ve been on a search lately for the best brownie recipe around.Â My kitchen has been covered in eggs & chocolate these past few weeks due to my quest for the perfect brownie recipe.
Well, I think I might have foundÂ just the one last night.Â This Best Brownie Recipe Ever is chocolate perfection.Â Bite one & you’ll never stop.Â Enjoy, this was hard work!
- 1 cup salted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 12 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 ozÂ unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 6 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules dissolved in 1Â tablespoon hot water (optional, but trust me)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
Go ahead & preheatÂ your oven to 300 FÂ or 150 C. Line a 9×13-inch pan with overhanging parchment paper.
In a medium saucepan- melt the butter over medium heat with the sugars. Use a heat-resistant spatula or a wire whisk to mix. At first, the liquefied butter will settle over the sugar Keep stirring until the sugar and butter have completely combined. The sugar will still be somewhat granular, but it will have incorporated the butter into a single, smooth mass.
Remove from the heat and cool for 10 minutes. Add both chocolates. Whisk until smooth.
Add the eggs and whisk until the mixture is thick and shiny.
Add the vanilla, salt and optional dissolved coffee granules. Mix to blend.
Add the flour and whisk only until smooth.
Pour into the prepared pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes only. The center will puff and the edges will appear glossy and firm. The center may appear soft underneath the surface, which is fine.
Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature.
Refrigerate until firm.
Place a cutting board over the pan and turn upside down. Remove the parchment paper
If you are glazing the brownies, do so bottom side up for an entirely smooth surface.
If you are eating them as is, invert them onto another board and slice into cubes, rectangles or triangles.
Store in the fridge wrapped in plastic for up to 2-3 weeks. Freeze wrapped in plastic and foil for up to 6 months.
