Last week when I was just beginning to get my taste back after not being able to taste even the strongest flavors for over a week, I wanted to taste chocolate. As I looked for something new, I came across this recipe that made a 8×8 pan and sounded so good with not only cocoa in it but 6 oz of chocolate chips. So hurried to get the ingredients out and went to work! This recipe is such a great one to make if you are in a hurry and know that you have to have an ooey gooey brownie in the next hour or you won’t be able to live to see the temps go down in a month or so!
6 oz of unsalted butter
6 oz of semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teas baking powder
1/4 teas salt
2 eggs at room temp ( unless you just can’t stand to wait to make them then go on and take a chance at using them right out of fridge, I did that night and lived to tell about it!)
2 teas vanilla (yes I am still recommending the clear mexico vanilla).
1 cup granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Line an 8×8” baking pan with parchment paper (I Didnt do that, I just sprayed my pan with Pam with flour) But if you use the paper, spray it with cooking spray.
in a heatproof bowl, melt the butter, cocoa and chocolate chips together over a pan of hot water or in microwave. Stir until combined and cooked a bit.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl combine the eggs with the sugar and vanilla. Beat until color is pale yellow for egg yolks, about 3-4 minutes. Mix in the cooled chocolate mixture and then add the flour mixture. Stir until combined.
scrape mixture with spatula into prepared baking pan and bake for about 20-25 minutes! I baked mine about 23 minutes but check after 20 minutes as ovens vary! You want them done but still a little gooey so when a few crumbs still stick to inserted knife in center when checking for doneness, take them out. They will still continue to bake even after you remove them from oven. We had a bowl with some Blue Bell Vanilla ice cream on top. Ah….we will be able to live to see the Fall temps arrive after all! I would add a picture but ate them up so fast I guess I’ll have to make them again to take a picture!
oh. I forgot. I sprinkled some chopped pecans over the top before baking. Yum….
