So far I had always made brownies using the store bought brownie mix. These chewy brownies have such a lovely texture, I am sure, I will never want to try those store bought mixes anymore. They are chewy on the inside and have the perfect crackly top which gives the brownies a fantastic look. Made some modifications to the original recipe and baked these lovelies. Weekend started of perfect with these brownies for dessert and a movie :).. Kids turned it up a notch, by warming up the brownies and adding a scoop of homemade malters ice-cream with it (missed taking pics of this )..
Just realized after writing up this post, that I have been on a brownie marathon, baking everything brownie! Recently baked these brownie cookies, and now the chewy brownies :).. Anything chocolate, me and my kids are ready to eat these anytime :)…
unsalted butter 5 tbsp, @room temperature
wholewheat flour 1 cup
baking powder 1/4 tsp
salt 1/2 tsp
unsweetened chocolate 1 cup, finely chopped
safflower oil 3 tbsp
sugar 1/2 cup
brown sugar 1 cup
eggs 3, large @room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter a 9-inch square baking pan.
Line with parchment, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides; butter parchment.
In a medium bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt.
In a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water, melt chocolate with butter and oil. (or can melt the chocolate with butter and oil in microwave over for 45-50 secs)
Remove from heat.
Add both sugars and whisk 10 seconds.
Add eggs and whisk using a hand mixer, vigorously until glossy and smooth for 45 seconds.
Using a rubber spatula, stir in dry ingredients.
Pour batter evenly into prepared pan, smoothing top with spatula.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a tester/toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs.
Let cool in the pan on a wire rack 20 minutes(as it continues to cook), then remove using parchment paper.
Let cool completely on rack before cutting into squares.
Note: if baking these brownies in muffin pan, they need to be baked for 15-18 mins only at 350 deg F.
