An essential recipe: the Fudge chocolate brownies! We love its slightly crispy top and its melting interior, very rich in chocolate… Very easy to make and quick too: mix everything in a large container.
The hardest part will be waiting for it to be cooked! The brownie I like it soft, especially not overcooked, with a slightly crunchy layer on top and an explosion of chocolate flavor on the palate. This is the case with this recipe!
Ingredients for this chocolate brownie
- Dark chocolate pastry : I opt for light-bodied pastry chocolate (around 52%) because I add bitter cocoa to the dough. I incorporate it melted and crushed in this recipe.
- Soft butter : or semi-salted butter. If so, you don't have to add a pinch of salt.
- Eggs : ideally at room temperature. They will give texture to the brownie and make it rise slightly.
- Light brown sugar : the quantity here may seem impressive to you, but if you want to have a very melting texture, this is the dose you need. The brown sugar gives the brownie a slightly crispy top and a very soft interior.
- flour : wheat or spelled. We use little to remain very soft / melting.
- Bitter cocoa : I use it to strengthen the chocolatey side of the brownie.
- Vanilla, salt : they enhance the flavor of the brownie.
How to make a fudge chocolate brownie?
Start by melting some of the chocolate with the butter. In a large container, pour all the other ingredients one by one, with the melted chocolate last. We blend just right. Then, we finish with the crushed chocolate chips.
All that remains is to bake the chocolate brownie! You have to check the cooking time ideal, because it varies according to your oven (from one brand to another...).
My tips for a perfect chocolate brownie
- choose a metal mold : cooking is much more precise than with another material (glass, silicone). I always prefer metal for my cakes in general.
- test cooking with a wooden pick: the cooking time may vary depending on the oven. It is necessary to test the duration at home by inserting a peak in the center of the brownie. Cooking is good when there are crumbs stuck to the wooden skewer.
- do not overcook : once out of the oven, the brownie continues to cook slightly in its mold and it solidifies as it cools. Two reasons therefore to respect the cooking time!
How to taste and store your brownie?
This chocolate brownie eaten alone (it's already very good this way) or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can also enjoy it with custard, it's delicious.
To keep it melting, keep it at room temperature, covered with a bell or cling film up to about 4 days. In the refrigerator, it tends to harden, which is a shame.
