These brownies are fudgy and have a shiny, flakey top. The perfect brownie, in my opinion.
If you like brownies you’ll love these.
Manuelas Favorite Brownies
- 1 1/4 cup (160 g) all-purpose flour
- 12 oz. (350 g) dark chocolate
- 5 tablespoons pure unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup (230 g) butter
- 1 3/4 cup (350 g) light brown sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla paste
Put the chocolate and butter into a bowl. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stir until everything is melted.
Turn off the heat, but leave the bowl where it is.
Add the brown sugar to the chocolate mixture, stir until everything is well blended.
It’s this process of heating the sugar which makes the top of the brownies nice and shiny after baking.
Remove the bowl from the heat. Add the eggs, egg yolks and vanilla extract and carefully stir to mix. It’s important not to overmix, or you’ll end up with chocolate cake instead of brownies!
Tip in the flour and cocoa powder, stir until everything is well blended.
Pour the batter into a lined 7 x 10-inch (18 x 26 cm) pan.
Bake the brownies in a 350 ˚F (180 ˚C) oven for 30 minutes, no longer.
Leave to cool completely, then place in the freezer for about 30-45 minutes.
These fudgy brownies are now firm and easy to cut into neat pieces.
This is my favorite Brownie recipe,
I hope I managed to tempt you…
Have a nice evening everyone.
