Use Only The Very Best Ingredients

Since chocolate brownies have so few ingredients it's important to use only the best chocolate. Experiment with the types and kinds of chocolate you use in your chocolate brownie recipes to determine your favorites.

Some bakers favor the long standing supermarket brand - Bakers. Others prefer premium imported and domestic chocolate for baking.

It's a matter of personal taste so choose the chocolate you favor and savor the delicious brownies you create.

Favorite Fudgy Brownie Recipes

If you are a brownie purist and don't like nuts, simply leave them out.

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 sticks (1/2 pound) butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  3. Alternatively, line the pan with foil that extends a bit beyond the sides of the pan and mist with cooking spray. This will allow you to remove the fudge brownies in one whole slab for more even cutting if you are so inclined.
  4. In a large bowl, sift flour, cocoa powder and salt together, and stir to combine. Set bowl aside.
  5. Cream eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, and coffee together with an electric mixer.
  6. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until all the dry ingredients are moist and blended.
  7. Fold in the chocolate chips, and nuts if using.
  8. Spread the fudge brownies batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  9. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes until the brownies spring back to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a moist crumb.
  10. Cool brownies in the pan on a wire rack for 30 to 40 minutes.
  11. Cut your brownies into desired size and shape.

Favorite Fudgy Brownie Recipes Variations

Substitute chocolate chips with mint chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips. You can also replace the walnuts with pecans or macadamia nuts.

Baker's Edge 9-in. x 12-in. x 2-in. Rectangle Nonstick Edge Brownie Pan Brownie Pan, Silver Baker's Edge Non-Stick Brownie Pan

The perfect brownie pan for brownie lovers and chewy edge lovers everywhere! It's expensive but worth it if you really love to bake brownies. You can use it to bake quick breads, and bar cookies too!!

This nonstick edge brownie pan is a high quality nonstick pan constructed of heavy cast aluminum, so with proper care it will endure for years. How many flimsy baking pans have you sent to the trash in your lifetime? It even comes with a custom nylon spatula for perfect cutting.

The one caveat to this pan is that it takes a bit more effort (1-2) minutes to fill and spread the batter into the pan's channels but we think its totally worth a couple of extra minutes for delicious evenly cooked brownies with lots of edges.
