Crinkly Fudge Brownies
I’ve made a mistake. I’m writing this post, looking at the photo above, AFTER all my brownies are gone. I sort of feel like I’m mourning the loss of such tasty goodness. Now all I want for dinner tonight is a brownie. Or three. Do you see the absolute hardships of food blogging?! It’s a tough job… but someone’s got to do it. I mean, just look at all these brownies I’ve made over the past years! Pure torture.
Oh, and happy Labor Day! Hope it’s full of delicious food, drinks, and fun times. If you have the day off and are looking for something to bake, you must try these brownies.
Taste: Unadulterated chocolate taste.
Texture: These brownies have a sort of texture contradiction. They’re rich and fudge-like but also airy and light. Plus, you can’t beat that crinkly top!
Ease: Very easy. I don’t know why anyone makes boxed brownies when these are so darn good.
Appearance: Well the title says it all. These brownies have that crinkly top we all love.
Pros: A wonderful brownie. Not as chewy as Classic Brownies but absolutely positively wonderful in their own way.
Would I make this again? Yes.
Crinkly Fudge Brownies
Yield: 16 brownies
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil, leaving an overhang on each end.
In a large microwave-safe bowl combine the chocolate and butter. Microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring between each burst, until the mixture is melted and smooth. Let cool slightly.
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs and sugar on high speed until light and thick, about 3 to 5 minutes. Beat in the vanilla extract. Stir in the cooled chocolate mixture with a rubber spatula. Add the flour and salt, folding gently until well combined. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the brownies are slightly puffed but still moist in the center. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and cool completely before cutting into squares. Brownies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days.
