The brownies are low cakes with a moist center that is almost dark which is typical of American cuisine and is referred to as such because of the dark coloration.
They are typically made with dark chocolate eggs flour butter and sugar with some variations including hazelnuts and a chocolate glaze coating. There is also a lighter version of brownies, which is frequently made with white chocolate. Blondies are the name given to them in this case.
Brownies can be served with vanilla ice cream, unsweetened whipped cream, or even a cup of coffee.
- 200 g of 75% dark chocolate
- 250 g of butter
- 200 g of brown sugar
- 150 g of flour
- 4 eggs at room temperature
- 40 g of bitter cocoa
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/4 of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- In a saucepan melt the butter in small pieces and the coarsely chopped dark chocolate over very low heat stirring constantly with a spatula. When you have a shiny and homogeneous mixture, remove it from the heat and set it aside to cool.
- Put the shelled eggs, brown sugar, salt, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Sift in the bitter cocoa.
- Combine the sifted flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl with a whisk or an electric mixer. Finally, carefully fold in the melted chocolate.
- Line a 23 cm side square mold with baking paper and grease it. Fill the container with the mixture and level it. Bake at 180 °F for 35-40 minutes, or until the mixture is firm (the inside must remain moist and melting), checking the consistency with a toothpick.
