For some reason, I’ve been having a hard time getting this post up. Writer’s block? I dunno…maybe it’s just that these brownies, chosen by Chocolatechic Tanya for TWD, were too good for words!
If you’ve made this recipe, or have even read through it, then you’ll have noticed something unusual…it requires a mixer to whip the heck out of the eggs and sugar! These are certainly fudgy brownies, but whereas the brownies I make at work are quite dense, you can feel what the whipped-in air does to these…they have a softer texutre and some chew. I read some reports of underbaked goo, so I baked my batch in a slightly larger pan than the recipe calls for, left them in the oven for a few extra insurance minutes and popped them in the fridge for half an hour before cutting into them. Perfect squares of deliciousness, with a paper-thin top crust.
Steph, Gotta give you props for baking all day at work and doing all of your baking at home! I also liked the results of whipping the sugar and eggs…that added step seems to make a wonderful difference in texture.
By looking at your brownies texture, I’m sure we got the same thing… I kept it longer in the oven cause I had smaller mold. Turned out great, just like yours… just not as perfect looking, I guess and not my favorite. I like the kind you mention… dense and more chocolatey.
I saw your photo earlier on Flickr today and have been drooling over your brownies ever since! Gorgeous! I loved these brownies too and I’m not usually a fudgy brownie girl. I sent them to work with my husband today but now that I want dessert I’m regretting that decision :)
Honestly, as you can see from the photo on my own blog, I LOVE underbaked goo. It kind of made me laugh how all the bakers were scrambling to make their brownies more solid — I have never complained about melted chocolate ;-)
Well, Steph…. speaking of “those” brownies you make at that place you call “work,” are you not going to leak the place of your employ? he he You see you have sparked the curious. Ah well, I guess I will just have to rest in the fact that this brownie recipe is just the kind of “gooey-ness I like. hehe Your brownies look so delicious. I am really wanting some of these and mine are long gone. Off to the kitchen. You are amazing!
oh yum your brownie loks awesome!
i made some a few weeks ago and while they werent so crash hot straight out of the oven, i left them in the kitchen totally forgot about them.. fast forward 4-5 days later i zapped a piece in the microwave and served with icecream- YUMMY!
