I’ve been a fan of every one of Dorie’s brownie recipes, and this one was no exception. At first, it looked like a regular brownie recipe, but when I read the directions, I saw that the mixing method was somewhat unusual. I was excited to see how that would affect the outcome. Usually, after melting the chocolate and butter, I would expect to then add the sugar, eggs, and remaining ingredients. With this recipe, you melt the chocolate and butter as usual, but the sugar and eggs are beaten on high speed before adding them in. This created a brownie that was neither cakey or fudgy, but light, fluffy, and moist. The chocolate factor was right on. Although I’m usually in the fudgy brownie camp, these were very delicious and are a brownie recipe sure to please everyone!
