Brownie recipe anyone??

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I am wondering if anyone has a brownie recipe they'd like to share? I am looking for one that is NOT cake-like, more fudgey than cake-like. I am planning to use heart cookie cutters to cut them into heart shapes, so I also would like one that will hold it's shape when cooled. Is there a obvious difference in using cocoa powder vs. chocolate squares??Any suggestions?? Thanks! icon_smile.gif

Hi,

Here's the best recipe that I've come accross. I've been making this since I was 15 so....quite a long time. It's nice and fudgy, and I believe that I actually made this, and cut some hearts for a BF when I was a teenager....so yes, it holds.

Brownies

1/2 cup magarine(or butter)
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tps vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup walnuts(optional)

Cream magarine, sugar & 2 eggs until creamy. Add the rest until creamy and cook in 350 oven for about 20 in a 8X8 greased pan

Lemondrop... how do you know if it is done? Do you test w/ a toothpick?

Yup, when it comes out clean...it's done! Yum!

Where is the leavening agent in this recipe? There's no baking powder or soda, so what makes it rise?

From what I've seen from this & other recipes, to get more of a "fudgey" brownie as opposed to "cake-like" you omit the baking powder/soda & that gives it more of a fudgey texture, instead of cake-y icon_smile.gif

Oh I see....it wouldn't be too heavy and dense that way? Forgive me for my silly questions I'm a newbie still.

Hopefully it will be just the right combo of heavy & dense.... I love dense brownies over cake-like. I am planning to make these tomorrow so I will post how they turn out! icon_smile.gif

The best brownie recipes on the planet are on www.verybestbaking.com

They even tell you if it is cakey, chewy or fudgey.

I'm drooling just thinking about them!

Antonia ~ Thanks for the recipes too! I actually just found the avator in MS Word's clipart! icon_smile.gif I really like it too... would make a cute tattoo... but then again I already have 2 that I regret from the year I turned 18 so maybe I should steer clear of tattoos icon_smile.gif But a tee shirt or a apron would be super cute. I bet you could enlarge it in MS Word & use a do-it your self printing program that will print pictures out on iron-on patches for shirts, aprons, etc. You can get that stuff at OfficeMax or a place like that... Hmmm.... I might have to do that too! icon_smile.gif

I think I have the funniest tattoo I know...it's a BIG plate of bacon, eggs and toast on my back. I swear!! It's about 6"

No regrets though...until my mother sees it!! (I've only had it for a few years.)

OK... yeah that definitely is FUNNY!!! Im sure there has GOT to be a story behind that. I absolutely love Frogs, so I have 1 on my tummy & 1 on my ankle... I still love frogs & would never get them removed, they are addicting though....

The story behind it is that I am a 6 foot tall British girl and the term for a big breakfast in England is a "Full English"...so, on a dare of course, I did it on my back.

(Sorry to get SO off the brownie topic guys, but this is funny!)

Okay, here she is...
