You must know one brownie freak. You know, the one experimenting with different brownie recipes, bringing them to every party, foisting them off on unsuspecting dieting guests. Here's a gift for them, and this time, I'm giving away a recipe to boot.
One of the best brownie characteristics for a true fan are the crispy edges. Alas, these edges are usually only on a percentage of the bars in the pan. Well, no more. This innovative brownie pan zig zag design ensures that every luscious cube has a border of chewy, crunchy goodness. This pan is truly a revolutionary dessert item.
And now, for an easy recipe (because true brownie fans eschew mixes):
1 stick unsalted butter
2-4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla, or Kahlua
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate together over low heat. When melted, add the sugar and mix, letting it melt into the buttery chocolate just slightly. Remove from heat, and quickly beat in both eggs and the vanilla/Kahlua. Add salt. Mix in flour until batter is smooth. Pour into pan and bake on middle rack for 30-35 minutes.
It's soooo good. Find the edgy brownie pan at www.surlatable.com. The recipe is from James Beard.
