Indulge in the rich and decadent world of chocolate with these Ultimate Chocolate Brownies. This recipe promises a perfect balance of fudgy goodness, a crackly top, and an irresistible chocolatey flavor, Indulge in Chocolate Love: Ultimate Brownie Recipe.
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or your choice)
Preheat Oven and Prepare the Pan
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×9-inch (23×23 cm) baking pan and line it with parchment paper, allowing some to overhang for easy removal later.
Mixing the Wet Ingredients
- In a large mixing bowl, melt the butter in the microwave or over a double boiler. Allow it to cool slightly.
- Whisk in the granulated sugar until well combined. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
Combining the Dry Ingredients
- In a separate bowl, sift the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Mix well to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
- Gradually incorporate the dry ingredient mixture into the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Do not overmix.
Adding Chocolate Chips
- Gently fold in the chocolate chips, saving a few to sprinkle on top.
Baking the Brownies
- Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle the reserved chocolate chips on top.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Be cautious not to overbake, as we want fudgy brownies.
Cooling and Cutting
- Cool the brownies in the pan on a wire rack for at least 1 hour. Lift them out using the parchment paper overhang, then cut into squares.
- Serve these Ultimate Chocolate Brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of chocolate syrup, or simply dusted with powdered sugar for an extra indulgence.
Enjoy the irresistible taste of homemade chocolate goodness!
