While we were "roughing it" for that month we did not have a stove, or any way to cook food without using a coffee maker, I stumbled upon this wonderful recipe from Something Swanky. Of course being without a way to make these wonderful looking brownies, and being pregnant, it was just torture for me. I spent a month craving these brownies!
So obviously the first thing I had to make once we got a stove, was these brownies! Please forgive me for lack of pictures, they did not last long enough for me to snap any.. They were that good!
Browned Butter Brownies:
2 1/2 sticks salted butter
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used chocolate chunks)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9x13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray.
Melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium high heat, stirring constantly until butter reaches a light brown color and “bits” have formed.
Pour the butter into the bowl of stand mixer. Add sugar and cocoa powder and beat until smooth, almost creamy.
Add salt, water, vanilla and mix well. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing in between each addition.
Add the flour and chocolate chips/chunks and mix well. The batter will be very thick.
Using a sturdy rubber spatula spread the batter into the prepared dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cool completely and cut into squares.
Eat and Enjoy!
