Baked Brownies

When I first read about “baked” brownies I thought these brownies were going to be kind of eh.  I mean, honestly, what brownies aren’t baked?  Well turns out it isn’t the simple act of baking the brownies that names these tasty little treats.  “Baked” is actually  the name of cook book.  And brownies actually belong in my belly.  OK I’m horrible.  Here are the brownies.  From scratch.  Make them and then give yourself a huge hug.  And a brownie.

Baked Brownies {adapted from A I’s recipe at EADL}

1.25 c all purpose flour

1 tsp salt

2 tbsp Hershey’s cocoa powder

1 bag Nestle chocolate chips

1 c butter cut into 1 inch pieces

1 tsp ground coffee

1.5 c granulated sugar

.5c firmly packed brown sugar

Heat over to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9/13 pan.  In a medium bowl, whisk flour, salt and cocoa together.  set aside.  Put chocolate chips, butter and instant coffee  in a double boiler over simmering water, stirring occasionally until the chocolate chips and butter are completely melted and smooth.  Turn off the heat, but keep the bowl over the water and add the sugars.  Whisk until completely combined then remove the bowl from the pan.  Cool the mixture to room temperature.  Add 3 eggs to the chocolate mixture to combine but do not over beat.  Add the remaining eggs and whisk to combine.  Sprinkle the flour mixture over the chocolate mixture.  Using a spatula, not the whisk, fold the flour mixture into the chocolate until just a bit of the flour mixture is visible.  Por the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top.  Bake in the center of the oven for 30 minutes, rotating the pan halfway trough the baking time until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies come out with a few mist crumb sticking to it.  Cool completely then cut into squares.

YUM!  Package cutely and give as gift.  Or eat them all yourself.
