Outrages Brownies

This is another one of Ina Garten great recipes. Just as the name said these brownies are outrages. It is rich, chewy and fudgy. I think the original recipe is way too much for us so I halved the recipes and bake it in a muffin pan. I original recipes call for a lots of butter but I reduced it to only one stick and it tasted just as good. For the full recipe please refer to here .

Ingredients:(Halved of the original)

2 sticks/226 grm/1 cup of unsalted butter (I used 1 stick/113 grm)
6 oz semisweet chocolate chips
3 oz unsweetened chocolate
3 large eggs
1 ½ tsp instant coffee
1 tbsp pure vanilla
1 cup + 2 tsp sugar (I used 1 cup)
½ cup flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

For tossing together:

2 tbsp flour
1 ½ chopped walnuts (I used 1 cup)
6 oz dark chocolate chips

1. Greased a muffin pan. Pre-heat oven to 350 degree F.
2. Melt together butter, semisweet chocolate chips and the unsweetened chocolate in a medium bowl over simmering water (double boil). Allow it to cool slightly.
3. In another bowl stir together eggs, instant coffee, vanilla and sugar. Stir in warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and allow it to cool to room temperature.
4. Sift together ½ cup flour, baking powder and salt. Add into the cooled chocolate mixture.
5. Toss the dark chocolate chips and walnuts together with the 2 tbsp of flour and then add it into the chocolate batter. Mix well and fill the batter into the muffin tin.
6. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when tested.

Note : This batter will make about 1o medium size brownies

ReeseKitchen said...

Hmm...chocolate! Its as good just by looking at it. How I wish I can try this..;p Book marked this, will try soon...thanks!

Ooh, do you think if i avoid the choc chips? & 1 cup of sugar is it still very sweet?

Gert, brownie is my hub's favourite, I have tried few recipes, but still could not achieve his expeactation. I bookmark this recipe, and will try one day for him.

Zurin said...

Oh wow ! these look absolutely fab Gert! Im keeping this recipe for sure! In fact Im making this for sure too! thank you ever so much for sharing :))))

WendyinKK said...

They look outrageously chocolatey.
Oh.. u make me want to make them

WendyinKK said...

But then again,
When it comes to American baking with chocolates, it's hard to do that here, cos we dont' have all those chocolates that you have there. Unsweetened chocs, never seen them here. I have a chocolate cookbook from Good HOusekeeping, but the recipes all uses chocolate bars and chips,and they measure with how many squares...... and gosh, that is not applicable here.

How I wish this recipe uses cocoa powder.

Gert, I really cannot help myself looking at your outrages brownies..gosh!!! Is it too sweet or just nice to taste? ^__^

ICook4Fun said...

Lisa, thank you.

Ummi, actually it is not very sweet. But if you like you can always reduce the amount of sugar.

M @ Betty Crapper said...

You can never have too much butter in my opinion.

If I could, I would eat the computer screen right now. Those have left me with a serious chocolate craving.
