Classic Fudgy Brownies


1 cup Stirling Creamery unsalted butter
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
⅔ cups quality cocoa powder
1 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
2½ cups granulated sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1½ all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Prepare a 13 x 9" baking pan by lightly spraying with a non-stick cooking spray and lining with parchment paper or aluminum foil. 

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and chopped chocolate, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Once melted, remove saucepan from heat and stir in cocoa powder, sugar, salt, vanilla, and espresso powder (if using) with a wooden spoon. Slowly pour in eggs, but stir quickly to avoid scrambling them. Fold in flour only until incorporated. Batter will be thick. 

Pour into prepared baking pan and smooth over using an offset spatula.

Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting into squares.

Once completely cooled and cut, store in an airtight container.

  1. Ugh, girl, I feel you on the driving thing. Just this morning, I'm pulling out of a space VERY slowly as another car waits to take my spot. Then some random SUV decides to start backing out of his space really fast and has the audacity to honk me!!! For like a solid two minutes of honking. I was like, jeez dude, calm down. Driving incidents like those seriously make me want to devour a pan of brownies. Yours look great! Pinning :)
