Best Brownies & Pan
I'm no kitchen guru but I do like my gadgets, so when a newbie hits the market, I'm game to give it a try, and this new perfect brownie pan won my approval, because we all know cutting brownies can be frustrating. It's going on my Christmas list, which I'm starting today! So, with the perfect brownie pan found and noted, I went to town searching for the best brownie recipe. What I found was thousands of recipes for any kind of brownie you had a taste for, but I was hunting for a simple, chewie brownie made from scratch. The box versions are good, but if you want the real thing, you have to go back to basics and this recipe does the job.
The Best Brownie
4 (1 oz.) unsweet chocolate baking squares
3/4 c. butter (yes, the real thing)
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
3 large eggs
1 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 t. salt
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 8 in. baking pan with tinfoil and lightly grease. Microwave chocolate squares and butter for about 1 -2 min. till smooth and melted. Stirring every 30 seconds. Mix in sugars, blend well. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking to blend. Add flour, vanilla and salt. Pour batter into pan and bake for 40-45 min. or till a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool. Lift tinfoil out and cut. Enjoy!
With the seasonal change soon upon us, add this recipe to your fall baking list or if you can't wait, treat yourself and compare with the box options. And if your a big brownie fan, and who isn't, keep a eye out for the perfect brownie pan since you just read the perfect brownie recipe!
