Ultimate Brownie recipe?
Ok..I've decided I'm not happy with my brownie recipe of many years. I'm looking for a fudgy, gooey one, preferably with a glossy top. Part of this is for my dd who prefers box brownies...I like the consistency of box brownies, I like the glossy top...I hate the taste as it tastes like preservatives to me.
Tonight I tried one which had 1 1/3 c flour, 4 squares baking chocolate, 1 cup butter, 4 eggs, 2 cups sugar, 2 tsp. vanilla. Even though it billed itself as a gooey brownie, it wasn't. Top was dull, and the brownie more fine-grained cake like..I'll also say that these measurements were fora 9 x 13" pan.
Also...what the heck MAKES a glossy top? I thought it had to do with the amount of eggs, but I'm unsure.
Molli, I hope you're reading!!!
Thanks...oh yeah, and I have to admit, I like brownies for the batter....Blonde Brownies are da bomb!
