TWD/BWJ Best Ever Brownies
I feel that I am somewhat of an expert on the subject of brownies. I have been making them for about 50 years! I tend to enjoy more of the 'cakey' variety of brownies so I was a bit concerned when I read that this recipe was 'chewy' and if I liked 'cakey' brownies to just move on. Well I couldn't move on, this was the recipe and I trust Julia so I approached this recipe with an open mind.
They brownies came together quickly. I did spray my pan--I used a nine inch stoneware pan as the recipe suggested. The batter was smooth and chocolaty. I cooked the recipe for about 7 minutes longer than the recipe stated. I did sprinkle chopped pecans on top of half of the pan, I love pecans. I chilled the brownies and tried to cut them with a sharp very clean knife. The top cracked--not the most beautiful brownie, but I decided I kind of liked the look.
Now for the taste, absolutely delicious. The brownies were perfect--chewy but not gooey. I think I just might have a new favorite brownie recipe. Thanks Julia once again you have broadened my brownie horizons.
