While visiting my sister, her mother-in-law made these delicious brownies... she and I have a lot in common, we share a love for good pizza, brownies and chocolate cake! :) As soon as I got home, I had to make these brownies for my husband.
recipe source: (here)
1 1/4 cups cake flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped coarse
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 1/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
(I also made some caramel sauce to top with)
1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with foil and grease the foil. Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl.
2. Melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave, stirring often, 1 to 3 minutes. Transfer the chocolate mixture to a large bowl and let it cool slightly. Gradually whisk in the sugar, followed by the eggs, one at a time, until combined. Whisk in the vanilla. Fold in the flour mixture, in 3 additions, with a rubber spatula until just incorporated.
3. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smooth the top, and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Bake the brownies until a toothpick inserted into the center omes out with just a few moist crumbs attached, 30 to 35 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking.
4. Let the brownies cool completely in the pan, set on a wire rack, about 2 hours.
