Awesomeness photos and amazing looking Fudgy chocolate brownies! I found your post in Pinterest! Thanks a lot for sharing Julian!
@Emma Christansen: No substitutions to any of the ingredients or the steps. Real eggs, butter, all purpose flour in all its gluteny glory, and the exact chocolate combo listed; I’m not vegan/vegetarian nor do I have any food allergies. Made it exactly as stated, even with the same utensils listed. Twice I got chocolate dough chunks. When my partner had time later that weekend, I had him try to make it without telling him about the first two failures (I’d tried baking the chunks as is and that hadn’t gone down well), just to see what he thought of the process. He’s the most careful reader I know as his job requires a ton of proofreading for spelling/grammar/continuity errors, etc., but even he got the same dough chunks that I did and he was the one who suggested adding the soy milk to even out the consistency. The only reason I gave two stars was because the process was easy but rather frustrating for the end result. Once we got milk in there it was fine and the brownies tasted 5/5!
Hi, Ariadne! Thanks (again!) for the feedback. This one is still kind of a puzzle to me, but since it’s happened to you a few times, I think we’ll send this back to our tester group for some experimenting. Cheers!
One more thought — chocolate chips are stirred into this batter, which don’t fully melt during baking and remain as semi-hard chips in the finished brownies. Could this be what you are experiencing as “chocolate dough chunks”?
I’m not sure if this recipe is missing a critical ingredient because I have made this batch twice exactly according to the letter and each time they came out weird. I had to add 1/2 cup of vanilla soymilk to the batter to make it even remotely like the batter-like consistency pictured above; otherwise without the milk, the end result looked like dough chunks. In the end the taste was amazing like everything else from this site but the dough definitely needed liquid.
Hi, Ariadne! I’m sorry this recipe didn’t work for you! I’m a little puzzled about why, though. This recipe has been made by our recipe testers and I’ve also made it myself a few times, and in our experience it makes quite a loose batter. Did you make any substitutions? Do the butter, flour, or the eggs, perhaps?
Fantastic recipe, thank you! This is the best brownie recipe I’vetried so far. My teen daughter and her friends too gave a big
So delicious! Perfectly rich.
Can you use cocoa instead of the unsweetened chocolate?
Hi, Lennie! We haven’t tested it with cocoa, and it’s not a straight-forward swap of one for the other, so I’d recommend against it. You might like this brownie recipe, though! It uses cocoa powder instead of chocolate: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/best_brownies/ Enjoy!
Fudgy brownie bites definitely looks yummi! I found your post from Pinterest! I’m also gonna pin this post on my Pinterest board my followers will love it. Thanks for sharing!
Just made these today – delish & very fudgy! Loved them!
This was my mother’s go to dessert too – only instead of brownies, she baked it in a pie plate and called it fudge pie. I was very confused the first time I had fudge pie in a pie shell! Whatever shape it takes, it’s delicious!
Oh, my that “fudge pie” sounds so good! I love it!
Lovely these brownie bites! They look really inviting!
It looks so delicious, I did not manage to find a perfect brownie recipe. I definitely need one :)
Cocoa brownies are my fave! No fuss and always delicious. Adding this to my list to try :)
I also make cocoa brownies, not wanting to fuss with melting butter and chocolate together, but these look pretty easy, and so fudgey!
