Ultimate brownie recipe (recette)

Melting the butter and chocolate on low heat. The apartment smelled like a big slice of chocolate heaven.

Sweet Bear was the official mixer of all the ingredients. She had fun drizzling the chocolate over the flour making pictures.

The finished product.  I will sprinkle powdered sugar over them at the school when I am serving the kids.

The brownies turned out great. It is a really easy recipe to follow. I made the first batch with walnuts and the second without. My second batch didn’t turn out because I pulled them out too soon. I was able to salvage the pieces around the outside edge which were done. It was only the middle that was not baked well.

It is important to leave the brownies in the oven for at least 35 minutes and not more than 40 minutes. Brownies are special and you can’t just stick a fork in them to see if they are done. Even if they are done something will come out on your fork because brownies are meant to be a little gooey. That is what makes them so yummy.

Here is the link to the Ultimate Brownie recipe that I used.

If you are baking in Europe you will need to use the conversions below for the recipe. I made them for myself while following the recipe.

One ounce equals 28 grams…the recipe calls for 8 ounces of chocolate which is 224 grams of chocolate. I used 200 grams of dark chocolate that is just for baking which was one large bar.

375 degrees F is 190 degrees C.

    Pumpkin, are brownies more of an American dish? If so, I was wondering how the Swiss kids at Sweat Bear’s school liked them. What did they think?

    Hmmm….maybe I was wrong. Didn’t you post something about taking them to her school? Now I can’t find where you posted that. Maybe I dreamed it? :-)

    I did bake them for her school. I took them yesterday for her party. We got to stay and it was so much fun. She really has a beautiful teacher and the school is perfect. She is learning so much and I am very very happy with Swiss public school so far.

    Only one child didn’t like it. The teacher was asking me about the “cake” and telling me how good it was and I told her it was typically American and brownies are a favorite at parties and the like…one of the kids said he didn’t think the cake was good but right after he said that all the other children told him the cake was very, very, very good. Many of the kids got a second helping.

    So, it seems that brownies are a hit even in Switzerland. :)


    I am sorry. But, it won’t hurt to have one little brownie. :) I had three yesterday…


    You are welcome. I figured I might as well post them since I had already found them for myself.

    Hi Pumpkin,

    This is AWESOME! Thank you very much for sharing the recipe on the net… (I don’t know if it is because I really feel very hungry right now because of your pictures, but I can smell chocolate in the air).

    By the way, I found your blog through Patdem’s one.

    My best regards from Buenos Aires, Argentina:)
