Cocoa brownies


  •     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
  •     11/4 cups cocoa, sifted
  •     2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  •     1/2 cup flour, sifted
  •     1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Watch how to make this recipe.
  2. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Butter and flour an 8-inch square pan.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. When it’s done, remove to a rack to cool. Resist the temptation to cut into it until it’s mostly cool.
