Brownies, anyone?

Calling all chocoholics, if you’re looking for an amazing recipe for brownies, click the link below.

Simply put, brownies are absolutely marvelous. Finding a good recipe for anything is difficult, but it’s even more so when you’re looking for something as delightful as a brownie. I had been sick at home one day, and was in the mood to bake, but couldn’t decide on what. After mulling around my kitchen, I decided to pick up the phone and call my cousin Lorry-Ann, who baked often for her kids so I could pick her brain about what I should make.
I knew I wanted to make something that was relatively quick and painless, and that would leave me wanting to make it again. After she made a few suggestions, to which I rejected all of them, she then directed me to a website called Lick The Bowl Good.

After reviewing this site for its recipes, I was hooked and bookmarked the site immediately. What impressed me the most was just how simple the ingredients were and how easy and clear the instructions were to follow. I’ve visited plenty of cooking/baking websites and the one mentioned above is by far my favorite.

Perfect Brownies adapted from Blackjack Bake House
 
Ingredients:
 

1/3 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
10 Tablespoons unsalted butter
4 oz. chopped bittersweet chocolate or chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Make sure the edges are long enough to drape over the sides of the pan, for easy brownie removal. Butter the foil or parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray and set aside.
 
In a small bowl, whisk together cocoa, flour, and salt. Set aside.
 
Melt butter over double boiler. Add sugar and chopped chocolate and whisk until chocolate melts and the mixture is fairly smooth (it will be grainy). Remove from heat. Allow them to cool slightly.
 
Add eggs to lukewarm chocolate mixture and beat with an electric mixer on medium for about 1 minute, until smooth. Add vanilla extract and beat to combine.
 
Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture and beat on medium speed for a full 3 minutes. (This is important to the success of the recipe)
 
Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly over the bottom and into the corners.
 
Bake for about 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in brownies comes out mostly clean.
 
To store, wrap in plastic or store in airtight container at room temperature.
 
Enjoy!
