I am looking for a great brownie recipe. I absolutely LOVE brownies and am finally trying to make some from scratch. And any tips to make them amazing would be appreciated.Looking for the best brownie recipe you have?
The Ultimate Brownie

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.



Brownie Layer:

2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1/3 cup flour

1 cup chopped nuts

Cheesecake layer:

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 tablespoon flour

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Adjust rack to bottom 1/3 of oven.

Line a 9 x 9-inch pan with a square of aluminum foil. Using 1 tablespoon of butter, grease the pan.

Brownie Layer:

In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt chocolate and butter, stirring occasionally. Whisk in sugar and vanilla. Remove pan from heat and beat in eggs one at at a time. Add flour and stir well, then add chopped nuts.

Turn batter into pan and level with the back of a spoon.

Chocolate Cheesecake Layer:

In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until soft. Add sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla. Add flour and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Pour cheesecake batter over brownie layer. Smooth top. Marbelize the batter by inserting a knife almost to the bottom of one corner of the pan and cutting through the batter in an S pattern.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Refrigerate until firm.

To remove and cut brownies.

Cover top of pan with a sheet of wax paper, then a cookie sheet. Invert onto cookie sheet and peel away foil that was underneath. Invert again right side up. The cheesecake layer will now be on top. Cut into 32 bars or triangles, cleaning blade after each cut.

Serve cold.

I just start with Betty Crocker mix, use the fudgy or cakey recipe, whichever you want. I take chocolate chips and mix a little in before baking, sometimes I dump a few on top of the batter, and push them in with a spoon. sometimes I just put them on the top of the hot brownies, and spread them with a spoon. . I make my Mom's chocolate mocha frosting and frost them. All it is is powdered sugar, cocoa, margarine, and hot coffee as the liquid. I don't measure, just use about half a sack of powdered sugar, 1/2 a stick of margarine, cocoa powder to taste, it takes at least a couple heaping tablespoons, and just enough coffee to make it all creamy. Stir with a spoon, and it is wise to sift the powdered sugar before using so you don't have to stir and stir to get any potential lumps out. People don't know that the frosting is mocha, it just makes it taste rich. I hated coffee as a kid, I would not have touched the frosting if it tasted strongly of coffee.

sometimes I put pecans in the brownies.

I get rave reviews with this, people think they are homemade. an ex-coworker always demanded I make them for potlucks.
