Kyle's Favorite Brownies

This is my son’s favorite recipe.  I found this recipe on Serious Eats/Brave Tart.  I loved their video and would highly suggest viewing it.  I have altered this recipe somewhat to be able to fit it in with ingredients I usually have on hand.  Here is their address if you would like to make theirs.  

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 whole eggs (refrigerated)
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1-1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350*.  Line a 9X13 pan with tinfoil.  Let the tinfoil fold over the edges of the pan.  Do not worry about it coming all the way up on the short sides.  Spray with non-stick baking spray.

  2. Melt butter over med/low heat.  When melted, raise the temperature and allow it to boil and bubble until the hissing noise has stopped.  Make sure you do not overdo this.  You want to have browned butter, not burnt butter. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate chips.  Set aside.

  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar, salt, eggs and vanilla.  Beat on high until your batter is light and fluffy.  This takes about 5 or more minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, sift the flour and cocoa together.  Gradually pour in the melted butter/chocolate in the sugar mixture.  After this is mixed thoroughly, pour in the cocoa/flour mixture.  Mix together, but do not overmix.  You don’t want to lose all those lovely bubbles you have created with your first mixture.  When mixed, pour into pan.  Cook for about 30 minutes.  Cool.  Using a knife, run it along the short sides of the pan. Lift the cooled brownies out of the pan using the tinfoil as a handle.  Serve.  Yummy!
