Alton Brown's Amazing Brownies

I tend to love Alton Brown's recipes. So, when I was wanting brownies I was more than willing to try his recipe for them. They are very moist and chocolaty. Chocolatey? Full of chocolate. Yeah that.
Try them and tell me what you think! And, just as a note, I don't own a mixer of any kind so I did this by hand. Worth it for sure.


Soft butter, for greasing the pan
Flour, for dusting the buttered pan
4 large eggs
1 cup sugar, sifted
1 cup brown sugar, sifted
8 ounces melted butter
1 and 1/4 cups cocoa, sifted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Butter and flour an 8-inch square pan.

In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs at medium speed until fluffy and light yellow. Add both sugars. Add remaining ingredients, and mix to combine.

Pour the batter into a greased and floured 8-inch square pan and bake for 45 minutes. Check for doneness with the tried-and-true toothpick method: a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan should come out clean. When it's done, remove to a rack to cool. Resist the temptation to cut into it until it's mostly cool.

Try not to eat the whole freaking pan! This is difficult for me. I couldn't believe how little flour is in this recipe but it makes for a brownie that is very rich. I think they would be delicious if you add some cinnamon in as well. Mmm.
