Chocolate Chip Brownies

I love fudgy, cakey brownies and this recipe definitely hits the spot. I can see these as great bake-sale brownies. It goes without saying that a large glass of milk is required to make these truly spectacular.

 

Ingredients

1 cup of unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups Flour
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

 

Cooking Directions

Heat the oven to 350F.

In a saucepan set over low heat, melt the butter (start at room temperature or cut into smaller pieces to melt evenly). Add the sugar. Return the mixture to the heat until it's hot but not bubbly (about 120F).  This heating is what will make the shine on the brownie.
 
Pour the cooked butter/sugar mixture to a mixing bowl. Stir in the cocoa, baking powder, vanilla and salt.

Use a hand mixer to whisk in the eggs.  This adds air to the mixture, making the brownie rise.  Mix until smooth. 
 
Add the flour and chocolate chips.  Stir.
 
Pour the batter into a lightly greased 9" x 13" pan, use a spatula to smooth the top.
 
Bake the brownies for about 35 minutes. The center of the brownies should look very moist, but not uncooked. Remove them from the oven and cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
