Welcome old and new friends! These gorgeous fudgy brownies have been alive on my channel for a few years. This is one of the first few recipes that I shot for my YouTube channel. Having created this blog much later, I didn’t add some of my earlier recipes. I’m slowly beginning to make some of favorite creations to add to my blog.
These fudgy brownies are a no-brainer. Remember, key to the fudge is melting chocolate and butter and then incorporating the remaining ingredients: eggs, cocoa and flour. Get your hands on the good kind of chocolate. It will truly up your brownie game! These brownies should not be cakey at all unless you overbake them. We’re not adding any leavening agent like baking soda or baking powder. Keep checking up on it in the oven and pull the pan out once a skewer inserted in the center comes out with fudgy crumbs attached- ~30-35 minutes mark should do it but I’d recommend to start checking up around 25 minutes. Tend to these bad boys like you would a bad boy :p
Fudgiest Brownies You Will Ever Make!
- 7 oz dark chocolate or semi-sweet if you prefer
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup sugar you can use all white (which I typically use) OR use a combination of 3/4 cup white and 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder unsweetened
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts optional
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunk or chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8 by 8 inch pan with foil or parchment paper.
- Melt chocolate and butter over a double boiler by placing a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water making sure the water does not touch the pan. If using microwave, heat for 10-15 seconds intervals, stirring in between until chocolate and butter have melted.
- Next, beat eggs in a separate bowl until pale and slightly fluffy, and using a whisk or spatula mix the melted chocolate in the eggs. Add sugar and mix really well. I prefer this updated method results in the perfect crackly top as opposed to adding egg directly to the chocolate.
- In a separate bowl, mix together cocoa powder, salt and flour. Add this to the batter along with wanuts and chocolate chunks.
- Mix the batter just until all the ingredients are incorporated. Don't overmix.
- Transfer the batter to the pan and top with additional nuts.
- Bake Fudge Brownies for 25-27 minutes. Begin checking after 20 minutes by inserting skewer in the center of the brownies. If it comes out with really moist and slightly gooey wet crumbs attached to it, pull out the pan. The residual heat will continue to cook it. Do not overbake.
- Let cool for an hour before slicing into squares.
- Serve a la mode!
- The biggest tip I can share is to really under bake the brownies till a skewer inserted in the center comes out really moist, almost a bit wet and gooey. This will ensure that as the brownies cool, they set to the perfect fudge that will last for days!
