America's Test Kitchen Lunchbox Brownies.



 
My sister in law, Monica sent me this recipe last week after I had a disappointing run-in with another recipe.  As in, I threw the entire thing away.  It was that bad.  Thankfully, Monica had this little lovely up her sleeve and was willing to share.  Last year, she purchased the America's Test Kitchen cookbooks and I have to say, I've been slightly coveting them ever since.  I must have them...

Anyway, onto the task at hand.  Brownies.  Deliciously, fudgy, decadent brownies.  They are oh, so good.

America's Test Kitchen Lunchbox Brownies
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease 9x13 pan.

1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate; chopped coarse
12 Tbsp {1 1/2 sticks} butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts {optional}

Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together and set aside.  Melt chocolate and butter together in microwave for 1-3 minutes; stirring often.  Let cool slightly.  Gradually whisk in sugar, followed by eggs; one a time until combined.  Whisk in vanilla.  Fold in flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just combined.  Scrape batter into prepared 9x13 pan and smooth with spatula.  If desired, add chopped nuts to the top of the batter.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking.  Brownies will be done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with just a few crumbs.  Do not overcook.  Let cool completely in pan for about 2 hours.

Those look AMAZING! That picture could be on the cover of a cookbook...yum! And I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one who has to throw batches of baking away too - your recipes all look so perfect, it makes me feel better knowing that you are human and occasionally (rarely) mess up recipes too!

Am I the only one that is wondering how in the world I could leave them in the pan for 2 HOURS to let them cool???? I don't think I can do it... (salivating)

Haha! I had the same question as Amy J! No self respecting human would leave brownies to cool for 2 hours! :) Hey I want to invite you to join us and share you recipes with Simple Saturdays. We would love to have you.

Made these because my wife left our America's Test Kitchen book at work and I really needed some chocolate dessert. They're good, but having made the recipe before, I believe this recipe is mislabeled. Posted here is ATK's chocolate snack cake. Both good though.
