This recipetook me by surprise. In modern times of excessive information and a millionrecipes of everything, the best-ever seemed suspicious to say the least.Another recipe name made to catch my attention.
I mean, a question for foodbloggers: who hasn’t made dozens of brownies and still can´t decide which oneis the best ever? I can’t. I change my mind all the time. Depends, best-evercompared to what. The fudgiest? the most demanded by friends? the besttime-result combination? See? It’s hard to choose one.
And don’t get me started on non-traditional ones like raspberry walnut brownies or a favorite of mine with whiskey and raisins.
So I setout to make these brownies with a lack of interest that shows in the pics,since I made half a recipe, not wanting to have a dozen average browniessitting around. So they are thin because I didn’t quite have a half pan forthem, also I threw some bittersweet chocolate chips over half of the batter because I assumed they would be too sweet.
It turnsout these are extraordinary brownies. The are fudgy, made in one bowl (yes Iknow the recipe says to mix eggs and half the sugar in another bowl and addthem slowly, but there was no way that was going to happen), have a greatbalance of sugar-chocolate and are so good warm. I couldn’t resist and took abite before they cooled down completely.
One thing Ilike is that they are like old-fashioned brownies, the flavor and texture atraditional one should have. According to me of course. I used both chocolatescalled for in the recipe, unsweetened and bittersweet, and of very goodquality. That really makes a difference. It is worth splurging on goodchocolate sometimes. I don’t think an average, sweeter chocolate would producethe same brownie.
They wereso good, I debated wether to make them again, the whole recipe in the rightpan, and take new pics of fat and fudgy brownies. But I didn’t have the timeyesterday.
But rest assured this recipe goes into my use-all-the-time folder. And they will be made a lot.
And thoughI will never settle for just one brownie recipe, their name is very close tobeing true.
