Happy birthday to me! I’m celebrating with one of my all-time favourite recipes – fudgy brownies. You just can’t beat the classic recipes!
This is my favourite brownie recipe. These are thick, chewy, fudgy, and rich in flavour. These are a dark chocolate lover’s dream brownie! The batter comes together so easily and quickly, using melted butter to speed up the process. The batter is quite thick, and will need to be spread out in the prepared pan. Baked in 25 minutes, you can have deliciously warm brownies to devour share in under an hour!
These brownies will keep fresh stored in an airtight container for up to a week… but trust me, they won’t last that long.
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line the bottom and sides of an 8x8" baking pan with aluminium foil, leaving an overhang on two opposite sides. Set aside.
Whisk together the butter, sugar, salt, and cocoa powder. Stir in the vanilla extract, then mix in the eggs, one at a time, stirring vigorously after each one. Fold in the flour until fully incorporated, beating until thick and shiny, about 40 - 50 strokes.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and spread out evenly. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out almost clean with a few moist crumbs. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into squares.
