Sunday Baking: Brownies

I was feeling the need for a good brownie this weekend, especially after I saw a post about it over at Bash!….I don’t have the BAKED cookbook yet (it’s still in the shopping cart) and so I decided to go with the Perfect Brownies recipe from Martha Stewart… I have to be honest, the only thing I really stick to on that recipe, though, are the ingredients- everything else I have mixed up.

Here is how I do it: Melt chocolate and butter together, add brown sugar, wait until cool, add eggs (use all 3), beat until smooth, add flour and baking powder- mix until just combined- pour in 9×9 greased+floured pan, bake for 45 minutes….though I start checking at 40 minutes and try not to overcook it. Here is the important part- just like the other BAKED and Bash! comments- you have to let the brownies sit for a good amount of time (I baked the brownies Saturday evening and cut them Sunday mid-morning… requires patience, but it is worth it! CAUTION: These brownies are so rich that you really can’t have more than like a 1 1/2″ x 2″ piece in a sitting- and I love sweets, so that says something..And, yeah, no nuts in my brownies either!

    No, no -there can never be nuts! But I don’t think I could wait that long to cut into them either!! They sound delish.
