This easy to make, fudgy brownie recipe produces the best balance between a cakey plain cocoa brownie and a dense fudge brownie. To make the brownies even denser and more fudgy, increase the amount of chocolate added and try to fold the ingredients together instead of whisking.
- 1 cup (128 grams) all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (64 grams) unsweetened cocoa
- 2 ounces (57 grams) (or more if you want it more fudgy) dark chocolate
- 1 cup (201 grams) granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup (5 1/3 tbsp or 76 grams) unsalted butter
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup 1% low-fat milk
- 2 large egg yolks
- 1 whole egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- butter (for buttering baking pan)
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit / 176 Celsius.
Use a sieve to sift flour into a bowl.
Fill up a 1 cup measure of the sifted flour. Use the flat edge of a butter knife to level off the flour.
Add the 1 cup of sifted flour, cocoa powder and salt to a medium-sized bowl.
Break the dark chocolate up into chunks.
Add the pieces of dark chocolate and the butter to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 15 seconds and then stir the mixture as much as possible. Repeat these steps of microwaving for 15 seconds and stirring until the chocolate has melted and is smooth. Unless you have a very low power microwave, you should not have to microwave for more than 45 seconds total. You want to use the microwave as little as possible so you do not burn the chocolate. You just want enough heat so you can stir and melt the chocolate. Note: Instead of using the microwave you could also use a double boiler.
The chocolate and butter mixture is now melted and smooth. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
Slowly add the granulated sugar while mixing. Mix until well combined.
Add one whole egg, and two egg yolks, the vanilla extract, and milk. If your bowl is too small to mix everything in without making a mess, pour it all into a larger one before mixing. Stir until combined.
Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl containing the dry ingredients.
Whisk until combined. Do no overmix your fudgy brownie batter.
Butter an 8 inch by 8 inch baking pan.
Pour the fudgy brownie mixture into baking pan.
Bake the fudgy brownies for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost clean.
Remove from oven and allow to cool. Slice the fudgy brownies into equal parts.
