Decadent Brownies


I was working on this Decadent Brownies recipe at the fundraiser session at the South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors.

Decadent-Brownies-04

This recipe surely needs some muscle power as stirring the thick batter was quite tiring. But you will be rewarded with a decadent dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups best quality cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

P/S: we substituted 1 cup chopped nuts with 1/2 cup extra chocolate chips due to concern of nut allergies for the fundraiser sale.

Makes a 9 x 13 pan


Instructions

Decadent-Brownies-02Combine butter, sugar, cocoa and salt in a heavy pot (cast-iron works well). Simmer over low heat until butter melts and mixture is hot.

Remove from heat.

Stir in vanilla with a wooden spoon. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring vigorously after each other.

When batter is thick, shiny and well-blended, add flour, a little at a time, stirring (about 40 times) until you cannot see flour anymore.

Stir in chocolate chips and nuts if using.

Decadent-Brownies-03Line a 9 x 13 pan with parchment paper.

Spread into pan evenly. Bake in a 325F preheated oven for 35 minutes (300F for 25 minutes in a convection oven) or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out slightly moist.

Let cool completely before slicing.
