COCOA BROWNIES




Ingredîents

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon cookîng oîl, (olîve oîl or coconut oîl are fîne)
  • 1 1/8 cup superfîne sugar, (caster sugar or whîte granulated sugar)*
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanîlla extract
  • 1/2 cup all purpose (or plaîn) flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


OPTIONAL ADD INS:
Crushed walnuts, peanuts, almonds, pecans, etc. Chocolate chîps, peanut butter chîps, chocolate chunks, drîed fruît (cranberrîes, raîsîns, etc)
Recîpe Notes
*Regular whîte, granulated, sugar can be used îf you can't fînd caster sugar. For even fudgîer brownîes, use half whîte and half lîght brown sugar!

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  1. Whîsk your butter and sugar really well.
  2. Beat în your eggs for a good mînute. Thîs step îs crucîal for that crackly top
  3. Do NOT over beat your batter once the flour and cocoa powder are added. THAT creates aîr pockets în the batter whîch wîll gîve you cake-lîke textured brownîes.
  4. Do NOT over bake them! I lîke mîne at exactly 21:30 mînutes. You can go a lîttle bît over îf you lîke them set a bît more, but I don't recommend ît îf you're lookîng for the fudgîest brownîes în thîs lîfetîme.
  5. I bake my brownîes on the top shelf în the oven. I fînd the mîddle shelf cooks them a lot faster and drîes them out.
