Out-of-this-world Brownies

If you like fudge-y brownies, then I think you'll love these. The interior is so moist and dense, pretty much just like fudge. I suggest that you cut them into very small, single bite portions since they are so rich.

Dave and I favor fudge brownies over cake brownies, so for us this recipe rocks.

Sherry Yard's Out-of -this- world Brownies

3/4 cup + 2 T all purpose flour
1/4 t salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, chopped
1 oz unsweetened chocolate
7 oz bittersweet chocolate
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar

Place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with pan spray.

Sift together flour and salt and set aside.

Melt the butter and both chocolates (either in the microwave or on the stove). Stir with a rubber spatula until smooth. Allow to cool to 90F.

Using a stand or hand mixer, beat together the eggs and sugar until fluffy. With a whisk, gently beat in the butter and chocolate. Fold in the flour.

Scrape batter into prepared pan and place in oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes, rotating the pan from front to back halfway through. Brownies should be slightly firm to the touch and a crust should form on the top. A toothpick will not come out clean.

Allow to cool in pan to room temperature before serving.

This recipe comes from Sherry's book, Desserts by the Yard.

  2. Yum! Another great fudge brownie recipe. This one is almost the same as the one I made for Valentine's Day. Peace, Stephanie
    PS My blog was deleted, but I stared a new one today!

  3. Those look and sound delicious. I will have to compute the calorie count before I decide whether I will try them :).

  4. Those look perfectly fudgy. I've heard so many good things about Sherry Yard's recipes. Another book to look into!
