Brownies

Cookies, Unfussy

These are everything I want in a brownie. My sister-in-law, Lindsay, kept trying different brownie recipes until she found her favorite, and her dedication paid off. Now it is the favorite of everyone I know. This recipe is from King Arthur. Himself.

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups dutch-process cocoa
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose or a combination of all-purpose and whole wheat)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used mint chips, pictured)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease, or line with a foil sling, a 9×13″ pan.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add sugar and stir until hot but not bubbling. Remove from heat. Stir in cocoa, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, and whisk until incorporated. Stir in flour and chocolate chips. (I opted to sprinkle mint chips on top… this time)

Bake for 25-30 minutes until the middle is set. Cool completely before cutting. Or not.
