Sauce Pan Brownies


I saw these fudgey-cakey brownies at Gulf Coast Gram's blog and I could not resist them. Just look at their moist chocolaty goodness and they tasted every bit as chocolaty and moist as they look. Plus this has two sticks of butter. How could they be bad?

Sauce Pan Brownies

2 sticks butter
4 1-ounce squares Baker's unsweetened chocolate
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup chopped pecans (toasted)

Generously grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish, set aside. Preheat oven to 350F.

Melt butter and chocolate together in a sauce pan over medium low heat, stirring occasionally to ensure that the chocolate doesn't scorch.

In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder. Add melted butter-chocolate mixture and stir well. Add eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.

Spread in prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool. Cut into squares.

Once these cooled enough to cut, Ole Sweetie-Pi was there with a huge bowl, a container of chocolate ice cream, and chocolate syrup. I didn't see him again after that (he was hiding from the moochimals, as he calls them, begging cats!) and when it was safe to come out, he later reported that these were the best brownies ever and that this recipe is a keeper.

I ate my brownies, unadorned, undisturbed, while sitting in my little kitchen. Of all the delicious and delightful brownie recipes that are out there, this is the one that I'm calling mine.

Thanks to Anj at Gulf Coast Gram for sharing this!

  20. These will be a hit with the 'boys' coming over to have a game night Sunday evening. IF and only IF I have the courage to turn my oven on.....tis 31 degrees outside and much worse inside I am afraid. You know...this global warming stuff is getting a bit much!!! GRIN! Okay, seriously though...those do looks scrumptious and I am so happy to try out a recipe I know works!!! Thanks for sharing Katy dear.

  21. It's very hard to have bad brownies! Even the worst brownie is still a mass of chocolate: nothing wrong with that!
    Yours look nice and fudgey!

  22. Oh my goodness, these look so decadant! My husband would do the exact same thing! He's always complaining that he never gets to eat his own food anymore between his wife and two kids!

  23. Oh how I love a good brownie!

    (as I sit here eating a chocolate cupcake)

    I agree, anything that starts with two sticks of butter is destined to be delicious.

  24. These look heavenly, Katy! I'm working all weekend, but will be trying these next week!!! By the way...I made your Mongolian Beef recipe last night and it was really good!!!

  27. Except for the baking powder, this is my brownie recipe, too. Mine turn out really fudgy, are these just a bit more airy?

    ReplyDelete
  28. These look DANGEROUSLY delicious!!

  29. I meant to tell you that your photos have been just awesome!!

  30. Kristen, these cookies are not quite cakey, not quite fudgey, perhaps more fudgey than cakey but there's a cakey quality to them nonetheless. How's that for doublespeak LOL?

    Thanks, Coleen, for the compliments on the pictures. Better natural lighting perhaps in the summer? I (meaning Ole Sweetie-Pi) have not gotten around to making a light box. It seems we only have maybe 30 minutes a day where everything is perfect aligned, and then that's only if it's not raining outside,

    I've noticed a change too, though, as I find that the light under my kitchen counter with natural light seems better than just the natural light that may pour onto my kitchen table....close ups are better than trying to photo the entire batch, etc, etc.

    I still want a light box!

  31. Oh I am loving these. Brownies are such a favorite in this household, delicious!

  35. Katy, first of all these brownies are very tempting...if I hadn't made brownies yesterday for family, I'd be following your recipe today to try it out!

    About the light box....LTD has one that is VERY reasonably priced. I'll email you the link. Probably worth buying over creating one considering how inexpensive it is!

  39. I'm not a fan of cake brownies myself. Fudgey brownies are totally the way to go. Yours look very, very tasty.
