Death by Brownies

When death by brownies occurs there is very little wrong with the world. A nice fudgy brownie and a glass of cold milk is all I need to melt my worries away. My family has always stood by a fudgy brownie box mix to make awesome brownies, I’ve been hunting for a from scratch brownie recipe for a while now and nothing has really stuck. Until now.

My God. These are a million times better than the box we used to use…wowzers. L., C., are you listening? You need to make this recipe. I tell you its freaking awesome. It takes longer than mixing oil and eggs into a mix, but the results are worth it.

For whatever hairbrained thing I was thinking while making them, I decided the 9×13 pan was just too large so I used an 8×8. The brownies were like fudge with chocolate chips on top. Oh so good. They were probably melt in your mouth delicious when they came out of the oven, I didn’t have any until Sunday since I was spending the weekend in San Francisco but they were still delicious Sunday evening and Monday morning ;).

I got the recipe from Joy at Joy the Baker. I love her blog and her recipes always sound so good, this is the first one I’ve tried from her. Her recipes will definitely pop back up here again.

Old School Fudge Brownies with Walnuts
from Joy the Baker who adapted this from Toll House.

1 2/3 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup cocoa powder

3/4 cup butter

2 Tablespoons strong coffee or water

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup chocolate chips or coarsely chopped chocolate bar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan. (I used a 10-inch round cake pan.)

Combine butter and cocoa powder in a small bowl, and place over a pot of simmering water. Make sure that the simmering water down not touch the bottom of the bowl. Add the coffee or water and stir to melt the ingredients.

In a medium sized bowl whisk together the eggs and the sugar. Add the vanilla extract. When the butter and chocolate have melted and come together, slowly stir the chocolate mixture into the sugar mixture.

Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir to combine. Fold in the nuts, saving a small handful for the top of the brownies if you like.

Pour the batter in the pan, sprinkle with chocolate chips or chocolate chunks and remaining nuts. Bake for 18-25 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cut into bars.
