Carrie MInns: The Best Brownies Ever
Perhaps the Best Brownies I Have Ever Made
Adapted from Karen’s Working Parent No-Fuss Brownies. Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 25 mins Total time: 40 mins Serves: 2 dozen
Here’s the thing about baking…the ingredients really do matter. Try to use the best ingredients you can afford. Although, that being said, life is short, brownies should add pleasure to your life, not stress, and any combination of sugar, butter, and chocolate has got to be good, doesn’t it? But, if you are making these to impress…consider your ingredients. For these, I use Scharffen Berger’s 99% Cacao unsweetened dark chocolate, Straus Family Creamery’s organic unsalted butter, Baker’s sugar, locally farmed eggs, and a pure vanilla extract (no imitations). I think it makes all the difference. While you’re at it, check the expiration date on your baking powder. The fresher, the better. Enjoy….
Makes at least 24 brownies or more, depending on how you cut them. Enjoy my friends!
PS: If you are wondering about the room temperature eggs…it helps them emulsify better with the solid ingredients. Think chemistry class here people.
