For week three, I went back to the Flour cookbook. I was having a major chocolate craving, you know the girl kind, TMI oh well.
I was immediately struck by the Intense Chocolate Brownie recipe.
If you read the description in the book Chang talks about finding the right balance between dry brownies and thick dense brownies. I have to say, I have made my fair share of brownies. Box mix and from scratch, and these so far are my absolute favorites.
She got the balance perfectly, although a part of the baking (as with any baking recipe) is knowing your oven. When a time is given you want to make sure you know if your oven cooks fast or slow. Mine cooks a bit slower (so far) and so I checked the brownies at 5 minute intervals to make sure that they were not going to be overdone.
I waited not so patiently for the brownies to cool, and Nick, B and I dug in.
These will be my go-to brownies for a long time to come. They were nice and chewy, but not too fudge, and they were not dry. Perfection. Even B loved them.
So far this has been my favorite recipe of the year of baking, and no that’s not the PMS talking.
What’s your favorite brownie recipe?
