Salted Brownies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/4 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbls. cocoa powder
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 c. granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • flaky sea salt

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8 inch square baking pan. Then line the pan with parchment paper.
  2. Melt your butter and chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk together your flour, baking powder, and cocoa. In another large bowl, whisk your eggs, sugar, and vanilla, then pour into your chocolate mixture until well combined. Stir your flour mixture into your chocolate mixture.
  3. Transfer the mixture to your baking pan and smooth out the brownie batter with a spatula. Sprinkle the whole mixture liberally with your flaky sea salt.
  4. Bake the brownies for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is golden and shiny. Cool the brownies, then remove and cut into large squares. Serve your brownies with a massive scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, fresh berries, and a little extra sea salt!
