>Nick Malgieri’s Supernatural Brownies

19 Nov

Ok so I’m clumsy. You don’t even want to know how many of my shirts have food stains on them. Most of them aren’t even from baking/cooking, they are from my sloppy eating habits…I really need to start carrying my tide-to-go pen on me at all times. It’s really the only way.

Ok so I made a whole pan of brownies. There was no way that I wasn’t going to nibble on one hot out of the oven, how could anyone possibly wait until they are cool?

Ok so this was a very crazy week and I began many a morning with a comforting cappuccino and ended many nights chowing down on chocolate covered cranberries. That’s just how it goes.

Chocolate + Butter
Melted Chocolate + Butter

A week ago I spent the afternoon procrastinating studying “diseases of the liver.” I was sitting at a cafe looking up brownie recipes. All I have wanted this entire week was to make brownies. Uber-rich, uber-buttery, uber-fudgey brownies. A week later and I’ve finally done it. I’ve made the brownies that I have been dreaming about for 7 days.

Special thanks to Kiri for recommending this recipe to me…

Nick Malgieri’s Supernatural Brownies

recipe from Saveur magazine

makes 24 brownies

16 tablespoons butter
8 oz. bittersweet chocolate, cut in 1/4″ pieces
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1 cup flour

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 13″ pan with butter and line with parchment paper. Grease the parchment. Set pan aside.

2. Pour enough water into a 4 quart saucepan that it reaches a depth of 1″. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Combine butter and chocolate in a medium bowl; set bowl over saucepan (do not let the bottom of the bowl directly touch the water). Cook, stirring until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. Whisk together eggs in a large bowl. Add sugars, vanilla, and salt. Stir in chocolate-butter mixture. Fold in the flour. Pour into prepared pan; spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes. Let cool on a rack. Cut and serve.
