A chocolate brownie is a flat, baked dessert square that was developed in the United States at the end of the 19th century. It is a cross between a cake and a soft cookie. Brownies are typically eaten by hand, often accompanied by milk or coffee.
- 150 grams semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chopped
- 110 grams unsalted butter cut into pieces
- 15 grams cocoa powder
- 200 grams granulated white sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 95 grams flour
- 125 grams semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and place the rack in the center of the oven. Butter a 20 cm square pan and line the bottom of the pan with parchment or wax paper.
Melt the chocolate and butter in a large stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from heat and stir in the cocoa powder and sugar.
Next, whisk in the vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Finally, stir in the flour, salt and chocolate chips.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 30 minute. Do not over bake. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
