I would love a good brownie recipe. I like brownies except the hard outside. I want to find a recipe or a technique where the outside is still soft like the center. Thanks.Brownie recipes?
Notting Hill Brownies
2 cups unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups all purpose flour
3/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan lightly with non stick cooking spray Line the bottom with parchment paper. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the melted butter, granulated and brown sugars, vanilla, and eggs. Beat well on the lowest speed. In a medium bowl, hand whisk the cocoa, flour, baking soda, and salt together. Fold into the batter and blend well with the mixer, stopping once or twice to scrape the bottom of the bowl. Fold in the nuts. Pour into the prepare pan. Smooth the top with a wet knife or metal spatula.
Place the pan onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until set and slightly firm, but not dry. Let cool completely on a wire rack, then freeze for 1 hour. Unmold and peel off the parchment paper. Cut into squares, roughly 2 1/2x2 1/2 inches. Wrap each in waxed paper and keep frozen or refrigerated. To serve for a party, piles the brownies onto a platter and dust with powdered sugar.
Variation: Skip the powdered sugar and drizzle the brownies with melted chocolate.Brownie recipes?
There is a simple solution for this.
When you take your brownies out of the oven, let them sit for approx. 10 minutes. Then cover them with plastic wrap. This keeps them soft and moist. Continue to keep them covered even after cutting.
