Hey there, last Monday our neighbour gave birth to a baby girl and i volunteered to bake brownies to take when we visit! original huh?!
anyway this aint the best picture .. since by olympus camera is apparently completely unprofessional! But i do assure you that these are probably the easiest and quikest and simply heavenly brownies you'll ever make! it literally takes maximum 10 minutes to throught everything together and shove it in the oven! In the original recipe the baking time is around 40minutes but due to the slowness of my oven it took my brownies about an hour to reach the delectableness that they were! again dont let the unprofessional pictor fool you these are reaally and i mean reallly good simple/easy/uncomplicated brownies ever!! (do i have you convinced?! :P)
anyway, i do have the pictor from the original website (yumsugar) and i decided to upload that as well since they look so much better than mine. Although mine tasted reallyy good as well and like they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or the stupid camera with which you capture it with)! the recipe:
Rich, Fudgy Brownies
1. 8 oz (1 cup) unsalted butter plus enough softened unsalted butter to grease the pan.
2. 3 oz (2/3 cup) unbleached all-purpose flour plus enough to line the pan.
3. 2 cups granulated sugar.
4. 4 large room temperature eggs [this seriously makes a difference].
5. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
6. 2 1/2 oz (3/4 cup) unsweetened cocoa powder.
7. 1/2 tsp baking powder.
8. 1/2 tsp table salt.
1) Position rack in center of oven and heat to 350F.
2) Butter and flour a 9" square pan, tapping out excess flour. [I decided to use cocoa powder instead of flour.]
3) Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat.
4) Remove pan from heat - whisk or stir in sugar, followed by all four eggs and vanilla.
5) Stir in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Go slowly to keep the ingredients from flying out of the pan. Stir until smooth and uniform.
6) Spread batter into prepared baking pan, smoothing so it fills the pan evenly.
7) Bake until a toothpick or skewer comes out clean (there will be a few clumps clinging to it) — this will take about 40 minutes.
8) Let brownies cool completely in the pan on a rack.
