Brownie Pudding

 

Chocolatey Goodness!

YOU MUST TRY THIS!!!! I don’t say that lightly! If you like chocolate, then you gotta have this. Even JF, who likes chocolate, but maybe wouldn’t DIE without it (like I would), thought this was unbelievable. He kept saying “wow” and “oh my god”. Good enough for me. This may  not look like anything special, but I believe the best part of this is not the decadent gooey insides (though that is really good too!!) it’s the crust. It forms this crisp layer on the top, which combined with the softness… ooohhhhhhh. What more can I say? The recipe? You got it.

I got a cookbook from the library a couple weeks back by Ina Garten “Back to Basics” and immediately knew I wanted to try this. I just didn’t know how much I would love it. I halved the recipe, but next time you can be sure I won’t do that! lol I also cut back on the butter, and was none the worse.

  • 5 TBS butter – melted  (Ina says 1 stick/8TBS)
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1c sugar
  • Slightly less than 1/2c c0c0a powder (I used frontier brand)
  • 1/4c flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1tsp vanilla extract

That’s it. So simple right?!

Preheat the oven to 325. Butter a baking dish. I used 8×8, but I feel it came out slightly thin. Next time I would LOVE to try this in individual ramekins. Wouldn’t that be adorable?

The light fluffy eggs

With an electric mixer or a whisk by hand, beat eggs and sugar on medium  high for 5-10 minutes or until*very thick and light yellow*. I think this is a crucial step for the texture of the final product. And I am just crazy enough to have done this by hand with the whisk (still don’t have my hand mixer available). Yes, my arm hurt, but, nothing would stop me. I needed this to come out right! Add in the vanilla.

In another bowl sift the flour, salt and cocoa together. I considered skipping this (Im lazy and I don’t like dirtying more dishes), but then I didn’t want clumps of cocoa here and clumps of flour there. So I did it. Stir this into the egg mixture until lightly combined. Then slowly add the cooled (melted) butter and mix until just combined (dont overmix).

Pour the batter into the baking dish and set the baking dish into a larger pan (I used a 9×13). Put it in the oven and then pour hot water in the large pan halfway up the baking dish with the brownie pudding in it. Do this carefully. It helps to pull the oven rack out before setting it inside. Hope that made sense.

Since mine was thin, it only took about 40-45 minutes, but the double(full) batch needs to bake 1 hr. Its tricky knowing when this is done, since it will still looked underbaked. Ina says “a cake tester inserted 2 inches from the side will come out three-quarters clean.” if that helps.

I recommend to serve warm with ice cream.

Go make this… now!
