America's Test Kitchen Best Chewy Chocolate Brownies

     
1/3 cup cocoa ( I used Hersheys Dark Cacao)
1&1/2 tsp espresso powder
1/2 cup + 2TBS boiling water
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate bar chopped small
WHISK all of the above together with whisk in large mixing bowl. BEST PART about this recipe besides GREAT brownies is you do NOT use a mixer!
1/2 stick melted butter
Whisk butter into chocolate mixture until combined
1/2 cup oil + 2 TBS whisk into above
2 Lrg. eggs + 2 Lrg yolks
Whisk eggs into batter
2 tsp vanilla
Whisk into batter
2 & 1/2 cup sugar
Whisk into batter
Sift together 1&3/4 cup flour & 3/4 tsp salt
FOLD with spatula into batter fold well until all flour is combined into batter scrape sides of bowl too!
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Fold chocolate into batter.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Place oven rack in lowest setting in your oven. Take a 9x13 pan. Make a foil sling lining bottom of pan with foil then lining sides so you have foil rising up from sides so you can lift brownies from pan once baked. Spray well with baking spray. Smooth batter into pans. Bake 30 to 35 minutes testing with wooden toothpick. Batter should leave crumbs & melted chocolate on pick but batter should be done. Remove from oven & let cool on wire baking rack 1 & 1/2 hours.Remove from pan using foil sling. I then frosted brownies & cut into bars. Glass pan let cool ten minutes & then lift brownies out of pan using your foil sling . Let them finish cooling & then cut. These are super with or without frosting but I frosted them because I LOVE FROSTING! I used my chocolate frosting recipe from this Blog!
