Perfect Brownies adapted from Blackjack Bake House
Ingredients1/3 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
DirectionsPreheat 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, salt; then 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 comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool or serve warm.
