How To Make Chocolate Brownies From Scratch
Recipe and printable instructions listed below
Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and salt into a medium-sized bowl.
Sifting the items together will help blend the ingredients together better. If you don’t have a sifter, you can use a strainer if the holes are small enough. I use this to drain meat as well as sift flour. Double duty!
Add the melted butter to a medium to large-sized bowl.
I melted the butter in the microwave and poured it into the bowl.
Add the sugar to the bowl and mix it together.
Next, add the vanilla to the mix.
Add the eggs, one at a time, while mixing.
Pour the flour mixture into the egg mixture and blend together.
Add a little bit at a time until all of the flour mixture is blended in. You’re almost there. Mmm…
Before you add the brownies to the batter, toss the chocolate chips in a little bit of flour.
I can’t explain the science behind this, but if you toss the chocolate chips in the flour, it will keep them sinking to the bottom of the brownie while they cook.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I will still eat the brownies if all of the chocolate chips sink to the bottom. But, you gotta admit, they do taste better spaced out within the batter.
Add the chocolate chips, mix them into the batter, and spread it into a greased 13″ x 9″ casserole dish.
These are going to be thick, chewy, and the perfect moist brownie recipe.
Bake for 35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. If you don’t have a cake tester, a knife or toothpick will work just as well.
Is brownie batter supposed to be really thick?
Yes, this batter will be very thick. Once cooked, the brownies will stay moist and fudgy on the inside, even on the off-chance they last longer than one day.
The top of the brownie has the crunchy shell, and the chocolate chips add some richness to the dessert.
I promise this will be your go-to recipe for the best brownies in the world.
