Best Brownie Ever!

I just love this Brownie Recipe. It always turns out well for me and it is moist, chewy and fudgy. All good things in my book anyway. I also love that this recipe is pretty quick to make. Often I make them in my mini muffin pans so they come out like those one bite brownies you can get in the grocery store, but they can be a finicky to get out of the tins, so for speed, I opted to just use the regular old 9" square pan. They probably keep a little fresher longer in the pan anyway. Not like they'll be kicking around for very long....maybe I should take some over to the neighbours since I seem to eating more than my fair share. If you're looking for a brownie recipe to give a try, this one is worth the time.

Quick Fudgy Brownies

3/4 cup butter
8 oz bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
4 eggs, large
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt

Chop butter and chocolate and put in a double boiler set over simmering hot water to melt. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugars with a whisk. Stir in vanilla and salt. Once chocolate and butter mixture is fully melted, add this mixture to the egg mixture and stir well. Add flour in three additions stirring well after each addition. Pour into greased 9" pan. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 30-35 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Center may be risen, and surface may be cracked, but this should settle flat when cooled. Adjust baking time to 20-25 minutes if using mini muffin pans. Even regular muffin pans make a nice lunch box size brownie and you can use paper liners so you don't have to worry about sticking to the pan.

I'm copying this one out. I can't get unsweetened chocolate here (which is what most of my brownie recipes call for), but I can get semisweet (& bittersweet in bars) & these look yummy! I tried a new lemon bar recipe, turned out well (Andrew's new fave) - I'll email it to you to try.

I am too cheap to buy the bittersweet here so I usually use half unsweetened, and half semisweet.

Ohhh I LOVE Brownies! I only have one Brownie recipe and luckily it's pretty good, but I'm going to have to try this one too! *slaps hand*

Where on earth do you get all these recipes??
