If you like fudgy brownies, this is the recipe for you. These are rich with big chocolate flavor. The recipe fills a 13" by 9" pan, which is a lot of brownies. I usually cut the pan of baked brownies into 4 large pieces, wrap them individually and freeze 3 of the 4 pieces.
Favorite Chocolate Brownies
3 sticks unsalted butter
12 ounces bittersweet chocolate
6 large eggs
1 1/4 cups cake flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 13" x 9" metal non-stick baking pan.
Chop the chocolate into roughly 1/2" pieces. Working with a double boiler pan, melt the butter with the chocolate, stirring until smooth. Remove the top boiler pan from the lower pan. Whisk the eggs one at a time into the chocolate. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and shiny.
In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour and cocoa powder together. Add the sugar and the salt, stirring to combine. Pour the chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients, folding with a large spatula to combine.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, smoothing out the top and filling in the corners.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 2 hours.
