Butter Brownies

Here's a recipe, to print out, stick on your fridge & have your family so mesmerized by, that they will never again think of brownies in the same way.  There's a huge secret to this, they are not packed full of butter, as one might expect.  I asked my hubby how much he thought was in there & he replied, "2 sticks."  Then I revealed to him, there are only 5 tablespoons, you should have seen his went down in the books for sure. ;)

These are by far the BEST brownies, we have ever eaten & I plan to make them again & again to share with everyone, especially as we get closer to the holidays.  Something tells me these are going to become a new holiday tradition, for our family & for yours.   

1 cup (140 g) all purpose flour 
1/2 tsp baking powder 
1/4 tsp salt 
6 oz white chocolate chips
5 tablespoons unsalted butter 
1/2 cup sugar 
1 jumbo egg, room temperature (can sub 2 large eggs)
1 tsp almond extract 

Preheat your oven to 350°F & grease (parchment lined) 8x8 square baking dish.   

In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt, set aside.

In a sauce pan over low heat, add the chocalate, butter & sugar, stir together until melted.  Remove from heat & allow to cook slightly. 

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, place the eggs & extract & whisk together. Slowly whisk in the cooled chocolate mixture into the egg mixture.  Then, add the flour mixture and continue whisking until combined. 

Using an off set spatula or similar, spread the batter evenly & place in the oven.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Allow them to cool for at least 1 hour.  Then remove from dish & cut into bars.

  15. Hi Angie,

    I'm a local girl and saw your recipe in the paper. I made these yesterday, and are they supposed to have a thicker batter say than box brownies?? You are talking to a non-cook and non-baker here. Just wondering. If not, I'm trying to figure out where I'm going wrong. Thanks!!!


Would love to know what you think, please feel free to let me know you stopped by. Big Southern hugs!!!
