Are there any good brownie recipes?

My mom is sick ( flu ) and i wanted to make her a nice homebaked treat but i can't find any really good ones. I need some!Are there any good brownie recipes?
The Ultimate Brownie is my absolute favorite brownie. It is tall like a cakey-brownie, but is dense like a fudgy-brownie. I'm sure it will be one of your favorite brownie recipes too :)


8- 1 ounce squares of unsweetened chocolate

1 cup butter

5 eggs

3 cups sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

1-1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

2-1/2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 13 pan.

Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat; set aside. In a mixer, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla at high speed for 10 minutes**. Blend in chocolate mixture, flour and salt until just mixed. Stir in the nuts. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes. (Don't overbake.) Cool and frost if desired, but that is not necessary.

** It's not required, but I use a mixer rather than do it by hand.


This is one of my favourites because it is in the microwave - takes only 5 minutes to cook! WHat can be better than that?!

If she's got the flu, she'd probably prefer chicken noodle soup over brownies. But here's a great recipe... it has more chocolate than flour, so you KNOW it's good! LOL

Decadent Brownies

1 pound unsalted butter

1 pound plus 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, divided

6 ounces unsweetened chocolate

6 extra-large eggs

1 tablespoon instant coffee powder

2 tablespoons real vanilla extract

2¼ cups sugar

1¼ cups flour, divided- 1 cup for batter, ¼ cup in walnuts

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

3 cups diced walnut pieces (pecans ok, too)

¾ cup peanut butter, optional

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Grease and flour a 13x18x1½” sheet pan. Melt together the butter, 1 pound chocolate chips, and bitter chocolate on top of a double boiler. Cool slightly. Stir together the eggs, instant coffee, vanilla and sugar. Stir in the warm chocolate mixture and cool to room temperature.

Stir together 1 cup of the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to cooled chocolate mixture. Toss the walnuts with 1/4 cup flour to coat. Then add to the chocolate batter. Pour into prepared pan.

OPTION: To make Peanut Butter Swirl brownies, use ¾ cup of peanut butter and add in dollops across chocolate batter. Use a knife to swirl PNB through batter.

Bake for about 30 min, or until tester just comes out clean. Halfway through the baking, rap the pan against the oven shelf to allow air to escape from between the pan and the brownie dough. Do not overbake! Cool thoroughly, refrigerate well and cut into squares.

Stir in the flour and salt. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan and bake until the top cracks and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out moist, about 50 minutes. let cool.

Refrigerate until the glaze is set, about 2 hours. Using the foil flaps, gently remove the chilled brownies from the pan and cut into 1-inch squares. Decorate the brownie bites with the icing.
