How to make Brownies at home!?

How Long Do You Put Brownies In The Oven?

Bake brownies for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist clumps clinging to it. There will also be a little batter stuck to the toothpick but it shouldn’t be covered in thick uncooked batter. Take care not to overbake brownies.

Ingredients (US Cups - Metric)

  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 5 once semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs / 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

 

Main Brownie Ingredients

  • Butter: is necessary for a rich, chewy brownie.
  • Sugar: not only will sugar add sweetness, it will also melt during baking and help with the chewiness.
  • Flour: the more flour you use, the cakier a brownie will be. Typically I use 1 cup of flour for super fudgy brownies but for this recipe, I added 1/4 cup more.
  • Eggs: the main structure of brownies. I also added an extra egg yolk to get more chewiness.

 

How To Make Brownies?

 

STEP 01 - Melt the chocolate and butter

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving a 1-inch overhang on all sides. Spray lightly with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • In a medium heatproof bowl set over a pot of barely simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter, stirring constantly until the mixture is smooth. You can also microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each one.

 

 

STEP 02 - Mix in the sugar

It’s important to add the sugar while the melted chocolate is hot. The sugar will melt ensuring the baked brownies aren’t grainy.

 

 

STEP 03 - Mix in the eggs and vanilla

Let the chocolate mixture cool before adding the eggs so they don’t scramble. Then whisk them in really well with the vanilla.

 

 

STEP 04 -  Mix in the flour and cocoa powder

Add the flour and cocoa powder then use a silicone spatula to fold it in just
until it’s incorporated. Take care not to overmix.

 

 

STEP 05 -  Bake

Bake the brownies for 25-30 minutes in a 350°F oven.Use the toothpick test to check for doneness. There should be a little batter and a few moist crumbs clinging to the toothpick.
