New Classic Brownies – ultra fudgy brownies with a crunchy top. The ultimate treat for brownie lovers!
NEW CLASSIC BROWNIES
There is no one word to sum up these babies, besides FUDGY. Absolutely melt-in-your-mouth heaven for any brownie or chocolate lover.
The author of the recipe is Alice Medrich after all and you can find it in her book “Cookies and Brownies”. So if you call yourself a brownie lover or a chocolate addict – you need to try these! They are sooooo worth it!
Few notes on this recipe:
– You must use a METAL pan for this recipe or the glass one will break as soon as you place it in the ice bath.
– The ice bath prevents the brownies from further baking and preserves the gooey center.
– My substitutions are highly recommended if you like red wine. If you are interested in pairing chocolate with wine and food, check out my post about our getaway for two!
– The better chocolate you use the better the experience.

- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 eggs room temperature
- 1/2 c all-purpose flour
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
- Line a 8"x8" METAL baking an with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

- Add vanilla and whisk again.
- Add eggs, one at a time, whisking well after each addition.

- Pour the brownie goodness into prepared pan and smooth the top out.

- In the meantime, prepare ice bath. Fill your sink with cold water with ice cubes so it comes up to 1 inch or fill a large roasting pan the same way.
- After the 20 minutes, remove the pan from oven and place in water bat, making sure not to splash any water onto your brownies. Let cool completely.
