Chewy Brownies via America’s Test Kitchen
Dave mentioned he wanted to make brownies again. (He’s searching for the holy grail of chocolate brownies – not cake-like but moist and fudgy.) Dave asked me to help out since it was after dinner and two heads in the kitchen are better than one right? We do pretty well in the kitchen together doing our own things – he cooks I clean. I prep he cooks. I cook he preps etc etc!
One of our go to cooking sites is America’s Test Kitchen (@TestKitchen)- you might recognize them as Cook’s Illustrated or Cook’s Country. I love their product tips, reviews and so so many of their cookbooks! (Their cookbooks could literally be a whole other set of blog posts. Yes, they’re that good!) It just so happened ATK tweeted tips about the science behind making the perfect ‘from a box’ like brownies. There’s actually a science behind it – SCIENCE!!! I’m all about food and science!
The brownie recipe we tried was the perfect amount of moist, chocolate and deliciousness. The brownies got tastier and tastier each day. I finally froze half the batch for future consumption. My ONLY complaint is the brownies took TWO hours to cool, but totally worth it!
Check out the Test Kitchen article about the three different approaches they made to brownies. READ: We Prove It: Gentle Folding Stops Tough Quick Breads
