The Best Brownies You’ll Ever Eat

– [Claire] We always say this, I know, but these are actually the best brownies you're ever going to have They're gooey, they're chocolatey, they're fudgy

Oh, they live up to every expectation you think a brownie should be (lively music) We took all the tips and the tricks from the internet, from our old gramma's recipes, from places we'd worked, to find the best recipe that we could Throw out every other recipe that you have for brownies This is the one you will use going forward for the rest of your life (lively music) I'm not trying to toot our own horn, but beep beep, you know

(lively music) All right, guys, as always, prep your tin You know what to do, butter and parchment So the first cooking job that I ever had was working for a pastry chef and he made these incredible brownies When you start working in kitchens, they always say write down the recipes 'cause you're gonna forget them later And of course, I did not do that, but there are a few things that I remember from his recipe that I really wanted to incorporate into our brownie recipe

Obviously, good brownies need good chocolate, and the chocolate bar you wanna use is dealer's choice You can go for something really mellow like a milk chocolate bar or go into something really, really dark, like an 80% dark chocolate would work really well in here We're gonna double up on the chocolate so we're gonna use cocoa powder as well Because we wanted a really rich, dark flavor and color, we went with the dutch processed You can use regular cocoa powder here, but we're always looking for that intense flavor, that intense color

The one on the left used regular cocoa powder It's kind of drier on top and almost too dense and fudgy on the bottom We're adding a little bit of cocoa powder here We're gonna add even more later Espresso powder just does a really great job of enhancing any chocolate flavor in a recipe

If you're worried about the caffeine, you can get a decaf powder as well It's not gonna taste like coffee or espresso, it's really just another flavor enhancer When we add the hot, melted butter to the chocolate, cocoa powder and espresso powder, it's gonna help melt everything down and dissolve, which is gonna help keep our brownies really fudgy later on (lively music) Sugars, we have granulated sugar, and then when deciding between light brown and dark brown, the real difference here is that dark brown has more molasses, ergo more flavor I don't even know what ergo means

Again, just wanted to knock your socks off with the flavor here and dark brown was the right one for the job And we're also gonna add a bit of salt as it brings out the flavor in any baked good (lively music) So we're gonna have six eggs Always crack your eggs into a separate bowl in case you get any shell Best way to remedy that is to use the egg shell

It breaks the surface tension and is the easiest way to get eggshell out of your eggs You can start by adding one egg to the sugar just so you don't make a huge mess Once you get it going though, you can add the rest of 'em, no big deal You don't have to be super careful like you would for a cake for instance So working for that pastry chef, one thing that he did with his brownies is he would beat the living crap out of the eggs and sugar and really, really incorporate tons of air, so much so that it would look like a super thick pancake batter almost

This is what happens when you don't beat the sugar and eggs, kind of just falls really flat, right The great thing about beating the eggs and the sugar is you create a really solid foundation and you don't have to use a chemical leavener Then you're gonna pour in that beautiful ganache that we made Oh my God Actually, when we were shooting this, there is a crowd of people around us 'cause we couldn't get over how insanely delicious this looked

Oh God, I just, I can't believed we baked these Honestly, I could've just eaten the batter myself (lively music) I'm really upset that America can't get on the metric system, but like fine If we're gonna use cups, always scoop and level, to make sure we have the right amount of flour If you just take the cup straight into the flour, it's gonna be denser than you need it to be

And you're going to sift the flour and the cocoa powder into the mixture to make sure we have no lumps and just make sure that we're really quickly incorporating it into the rest of the batter (lively music) And fold Because we beat all that air in with the eggs, we don't wanna totally deflate that, so just get the dry ingredients incorporated as quickly as you can (lively music) Pour the completed batter into your prepped tin, smooth it out to make sure everything's pretty level (lively music) And into the oven it goes

So these are gonna rise quite a bit After about 20 minutes, we're gonna take them out This is my favorite tip of the whole recipe Take the brownies out and slam them on your kitchen counter It's gonna crack the top as well as evens out everything and you get a much more consistent texture

These are the same recipe The one on the left is not whacked, right whacked At this point, we're also going to add a bit of sea salt, optional but highly recommended Adds a little salty bite, sweet and salty, always good With a lot of baked goods, you'll stick a toothpick in and no batter remains, then you're good

It's kind of not the case with these brownies You will have a good amount of fudginess that comes out on the toothpick Trust us, they've been in there for like 45 minutes They're definitely cooked through They're just fudgy

When they do cool down, they also will deflate quite a bit It results in a really even texture all throughout Again, I can't say fudgy enough I don't even like fudge, little known thing about me, but these brownies are insane I need to cut these nice

They need to be a good, perfect square It's so satisfying to see a perfectly cut batch of brownies, obviously (lively music) Oh my gosh, a little tip too, is to clean your knife after each cut You'll see a little bit of that fudginess comes off They're fudgy but they're not dense

(lively music) And that is it I mean, look at that texture Look at it! This is like your go to brownie batter It's amazing as is, but you can also mix in anything that you want, more chocolate chunks, potato chips, pretzels This is like a phenomenal standard brownie recipe but feel free to go crazy and mix in whatever you want

Making brownies from scratch, you know, there's other options out there that are easier, but it's one of those fundamental baked goods that doesn't take a ton of technique, but they also go with everything and every event You know what I mean? Like you have a break up, brownies Birthday, brownies Like, they kind of work for anything Just one of those feel good, crowd pleasing deserts, that's just always a win

Okay, that's fine I'm just gonna keep talking and we're leave it and it's gonna be fine – [Male] You're funny, Claire – [Claire] (laughing) Stop – [Male] You're so funny

– [Claire] You're so funny – [Male] You're funny – [Claire] Beep, beep – [Male] You're slacking – [Claire] I guess
