Good Eats Dark Chocolate Brownies

Ingredients

  • 1.25 cups natural cocoa powder (dutch processed works but I don't like it as much)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup AP flower
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 8 oz melted butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 large eggs

Prep

  • Preheat to 300F
  • Spray baking pan with pam, line with parchment + enough to lift brownies out
  • Sift all dry ingredients + sugars together

Process

  • Beat eggs on high until light in color & texture (few minutes, not too much)
  • Set to med-low, add sifted ingredients to eggs
  • Add vanilla once integrated
  • Set to low, add butter slowly
    • Stir 30s after combined, scrape, stir again 15 seconds

Add to the pan and bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean. Remove from pan immediately and cut, cool on rack.

Modifications

I have added the following to the batter with success:

  • Chopped dried cherries (best option, these brownies are very bitter so these taste great)
  • Hazelnut butter
  • Coffee would be good if you like coffee
