Easy Homemade Brownies

Homemade brownies are almost as easy as a box, and seriously, ten times better. They are gooey, dense, rich and just downright delightful. I made a batch last night for a friend who just had a baby, and I might have had a nibble this morning with my coffee.

Double-Chocolate Brownies, Martha Stewart Magazine

1 stick unsalted butter, cut into large pieces

6 ounces of bittersweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups sugar

3  large eggs

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, sifted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or line with parchment paper a square baking pan. Melt butter and chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave (heat mixture in 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds until completely melted).

Once melted, whisk in sugar. Add eggs one at a time until combined. Whisk in cocoa and salt. Fold in flour until combined.

Pour batter into pan. Bake until set and toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs, 35 to 40 minutes.

Let cool slighty, then cut into them and enjoy.

I made the mistake of trying to cut into them when they were still too warm, hence no picture. Oh well…they still tasted awesome. And the whole process takes about 15 minutes max.

    Once you go homemade you can’t go back!
