TWD: Rick Katz's Brownies for Julia

This week's TWD was chosen by none other than Tanya of Chocolatechic. Of course she would choose something gooey, chocolately, fudgey and all together yum!

After reading the reviews I was very very careful to cover page 90 so that I wouldn't follow those instructions by mistake. :)

The one thing I did forget was to include the chopped bittersweet chocolate in the melting step along with the unsweetened chocolate. I was getting ready to add the beaten eggs and sugar to the chocolate mixture when I saw the bittersweet chocolate staring at me from the scale.

I melted it separately and added it to the already melted chocolate....I don't think it made a difference.

I poured all of the batter into a foil lined 9 x 13 pan and baked the pan for 15 more minutes than Dorie recommended.

After the brownies cooled I chucked them in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. They were super easy to lift out of the pan and cut while cold.

These might be the best brownies I have ever made. I think this is the first time I have made them when the edges weren't burnt and the middle left gooey. They were so good. I even tasted a hint of salty chocolate.

Definitely a keeper.

Don't forget to check here for the other variations....some bakers preferred to leave them gooey...not that there's anything wrong with that. :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Your brownies look delicious! I have the most trouble with brownies being gooey in the middle too. Maybe we just needed the right brownie recipe.
