salted fudge brownies

May 25, 2011



* 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

* 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped

* 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa, sifted

* 2 cups sugar

* 3 large eggs

* 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

* 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted

* 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt/other coarse salt


1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter a 9-inch square pan.

2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter with the unsweetened chocolate over very low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Whisking them in one at a time until thoroughly incorporated, add the cocoa, sugar, eggs, vanilla and flour. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Sprinkle the salt evenly over the batter. Using a butter knife, swirl the salt into the batter.

3. Bake the brownies in the center of the oven for about 35 minutes, until the edge is set but the center is still a bit soft and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out coated with a little of the batter. Let the brownies cool at room temperature in the pan for 1 hour, then refrigerate just until they are firm, about 1 hour.
