Brownies

Ingredients


 16 tablespoons (227g) unsalted butter, softened

 2 cups (425g) light brown sugar, packed

 3/4 cup (64g) cocoa

 1 teaspoon salt

 1 teaspoon baking powder

 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

 4 large eggs

 1 1/2 cups (170g) Fyler Farms sifted wheat flour

 2 cups (340g) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips


Instructions


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9x13; pan; line the pan with

parchment paper if desired.

2. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, or in a saucepan set over low heat,

melt the butter, then add the sugar and stir to combine.

3. Return the mixture to the heat (or microwave) briefly just till it's hot (about 110°F

to 120°F) but not bubbling. Don't worry if it separates; just stir it briefly to

recombine a bit. Heating this mixture a second time will dissolve more of the

sugar, which will yield a shiny top crust on your brownies.

4. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, and stir in the cocoa, salt, baking powder,

espresso powder if using, and vanilla.

5. Add the eggs, stirring till smooth.

6. Then add the flour and chips, again stirring till smooth. Spoon the batter into the

prepared pan.

7. Bake the brownies for 30 minutes, until a cake tester or sharp knife poked into

the center reveals wet crumbs, but not raw batter. The brownies should feel set

on the edges and in the center. Remove them from the oven, and cool

completely on a rack.

Tips

 You can add 1 cup of nuts, or try other flavor combinations that appeal to you: toffee

chips, or white chocolate, peanut butter, cappuccino, or mint chips. The total volume of

mix-ins shouldn't exceed 3 cups, and may increase baking time by 3 to 5 minutes.

 If you want to cut shapes out of the brownies, line the baking pan with a sheet of

parchment paper. Use a paper or metal spring clip to secure the parchment to the edge

of the pan so it doesn't flop down on the batter as it bakes. After the brownies are cool,

you can use the parchment to lift the slab of brownies out of the pan, making them

easier to frost or glaze, and cut.


Notes

When testing the brownies with a toothpick or knife, they may appear to be underdone due to the melted chocolate chips. In our experience, the brownies are fully cooked between 30 and 35 minutes, depending on your oven.
