Today's recipe is Best-Ever Brownies.. The "Best-Ever" title is given them by the book, not me.. I liked them, they are really really delicious if you ask me.. However, I haven't eaten or baked enough brownies to decide these to qualify as best-ever..
The ingredients are usual suspects: flour, salt, butter, unsweetened & bittersweet chocolate, sugar, vanilla extract, eggs.. The stars of the show being lots of butter and chocolate.. The process is straight-forward but a bit more complicated than a normal brownie recipe: includes more whipping and folding.. Dorie says these tricks enhances the texture of the brownies which are supposed to be fudgey.. The recipe calls to bake them for 25-28 minutes, but to check them at 23 minutes mark to make sure not to over-bake.. I read a lot about how they need to be baked longer by other Tuesdays With Dorie bakers that I was pretty sure mine will not be done in time either.. So I checked them at 25 minutes and let them bake until 28 minutes is over.. Mine are a bit over-baked as a result :) Not gooey, but still moist and delicious.. I don't know why I did not have the same baking time issue, may be because I used 7x11inches glass baking dish??!! Who knows..
I loved loved how they taste, the recipe is for sure a keeper for me.. If you would like to give it a try, please visit Monica's blog: A Beautiful Mess.. Or check page 331 of Baking With Julia..
