Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2014
These are the best homemade brownies I think I've ever tasted. They beat the store box mixes hands down. I read a lot of the reviews and took their advice (along with my own ideas): I followed the recipe except that I used a 9-inch square pan lined with parchment paper I cut to fit the bottom and sides of the pan and sprayed some nonstick spray (no flour) on the parchment paper. I melted the butter on the stove and set it aside as soon as it had melted to let it completely cool. In a large bowl, I whisked together the sugar, cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. After the butter had completely cooled, I LIGHTLY whisked together the butter, eggs and vanilla just enough to make sure the ingredients were combined. I poured these wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and GENTLY stirred and folded the ingredients together 50 strokes making sure no dry ingredients were left unmixed at the bottom of the bowl. I baked the brownies for only 25 minutes. After 15 minutes out of the oven, I lifted the brownies out of the pan using the parchment paper as handles and placed them on a cooling rack to cool completely. They came out perfectly! They were the texture of brownies, not fudgey and not cakey. They are addicting. I think that if you follow what I did, your brownies will come out right. I did not make any frosting because I didn't want them to be too sweet. They are great without the frosting. Thanks Angie for sharing your recipe with us.
