Chewy Fudgey Brownies

I stumbled upon these brownies on Annie's Eats and the pictures really dont do these justice. They are amazing! I looovvee fudgey soft brownies. I honestly have been craving these ever since I made them a few weeks ago. I shared them with my co-workers and a friend of mine. My friend, Christa is pregnant and I sent some home with her, later that night I received a text asking for more. So I guess thats a good testament to how good these are. The recipe comes from Baking Illustrated and really is my new favorite brownie. Go, run to your kitchen and make these. They are good by themselves but I bet warmed with a scoop of ice cream would be amazing as well!

Chewy Fudgey Brownies from Annie's Eats adapted from Baking Illustrated

5 ounces of semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 ounces unsweetened chcocoalte, chopped
8 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into quarters
3 tbsp cocoa powder
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and place oven rack in lower middle position. Line an 8 or 9 inch baking dish with foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray, set aside.

In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, melt the chocoalte and butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt. Whisk until combined, about 15-20 seconds. Whisk in warm chocolate mixture until incorporated. Then stir in flour with a wooden spoon until just combined. (This might take a little while, dont worry it will smooth out) Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread with a spatula to make an even.

Bake until slightly puffed and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a small amount of sticky crumbs, about 35-40 minutes.

Transfer pan to a wire rack and let cool to room temperature, about 2 hours.

Remove the brownies from the pan, cut and enjoy!
How cute is this new cake stand I bought? I really need more brownies for a cute picture but this was all I had left, so it will have to do. :)

  6. For the longest time I thought there were only two types of brownies- fudgy or cakey. And I never found a recipe I liked because chewy is what I've been looking for! duh!

    I will definitely have to give these a try.
