Egg-cellent Brownies

Posted by fourclankitchen on February 7, 2010

The only brownie recipe you will ever need (from Fine Cooking Magazine via Alexandra Cooks)

This brownie recipe is it. You will never look for another recipe. It has too much butter, too many eggs and too little flour. What’s not to like? Try it once and then again.

4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter; plus more for greasing the pan
2 cups granulated sugar
½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt

Preheat your oven to 350°F and position rack in the center of the oven. Then, butter an 8-inch square baking pan.

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the sugar and whisk until butter is melted and the sugar and butter are blended together. Then add the beaten eggs and vanilla and whisk until everything is mixed together. In another bowl mix together the cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt. Transfer butter mixture to bowl with flour and stir with spatula until batter is smooth.

Now, add everything into the prepared pan and bake for about 45-50 minutes (the original recipe suggests 37-40 min, but this was not enough). Start checking at 40 min: the brownies are done when a sharp knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the brownies cool completely in pan on rack. Enjoy, and try not to eat all of them at once!
