It wasn’t until yesterday when I actually got cracking on Rick Katz’s Best-Ever Brownies, that I realized I’ve made this recipe before. Back in Season 1 of TWD. Only then they were called Rick Katz’s Brownies for Juila. Different book, same recipe, same strange egg whipping technique. I am cheaply recycling the photo, because I missed my light window both yesterday and today (curses to work!).
Well, there is one difference between the two recipes. This version in Baking with Julia calls for 1/4 cup of extra flour. I prefer it with that extra little bit of flour…I think it gives the brownies a bit more structure. The batch I made yesterday looks the same as the one in the photo, but they are a little taller. This time I made half a recipe and baked it in a 9″ x 5″ metal loaf pan lined with parchment for 30 minutes exactly. Then I pulled them out of the oven to come to room temperature before I put them in the fridge to chill through. I did the same thing the last time around, because I remembered this made the chocolate goo solidify into chew. They were good brownies back then, and they are still good now.
