This Ultimate Fudge Brownie recipe is my mom’s favorite brownie recipe. It is mine too. The moment I first tasted it no brownie recipes or even any brownies can match up this simple dessert.
This is where my Kahlua Fudge Brownies was based. Lets just say this is the mother of all my brownie recipe I made. Oh yeah! By the way, this recipe was based on Dyann Bakes brownie recipe on YouTube. Sadly, she stopped doing videos several years ago. However, her brownie recipe is really great.
Since this Ultimate Brownie Recipe is the spinoff of Dyann Bakes’ recipe, I tweaked the ingredients and added more unsweetened chocolate bar. The original recipe calls for 110 grams of unsweetened chocolate but I thought of I want it more chocolatey. So, 40 grams more wouldn’t hurt right?
Also, I find the original recipe too sweet and my mom might comment on that. So more unsweetened chocolate to balance it out. To make it more flavorful, I added another teaspoon of vanilla which turned out right.
Do not be deceived by the half cup of flour. I tell you, this is all you need. Adding more flour will make this recipe on the cakey side. Yup! I tried it and I don’t like cakey brownies.
For this Ultimate Fudge Brownie Recipe I suggest you use a stand mixer. Why? Here’s why?
I started baking this recipe using a hand mixer. Though you get that fudgy texture and chocolatey flavor the hand mixer incorporated too much air into the batter which somewhat affect the texture. However, that was fixed when I bought a stand mixer and started using the paddle attachment. The brownie turned out fudgier and gave me the texture I want.
When beating the eggs using the hand mixer, bigger bubbles where formed. This entraps more air which affects the texture. On the other hand, the paddle attachment of the stand mixer gave a nice and beautiful foam to the beaten eggs. And that’s what you want.
If you have trouble cutting your brownie dish, use a plastic knife and it do most of the job. Though I used a serrated knife for this one. I can’t seem to find my plastic knife.
