THE BROWNIE | 世界無敵好吃的布朗尼

This is THE BROWNIE. That’s it. I’m sure that every blogger says that about their own brownie, but this is the one tried and true recipe my family loves. My family don’t care for sugar but love this brownie. It’s loaded with chocolate, reduced in sugar and fat, infused with whiskey, under-baked, gooey and moist… just GOOD.

I don’t really have words to describe this one, but I have been told that this is the best brownie ever, over and over again. In my recipe notebook, I literally call this THE brownie. Sean asks for this for his birthday every year. I’ve baked it in a toaster oven, a tiny oven and a regular American oven, that’s how much he loves it. Try this, tell me if you’re as addicted as he is.

I’ve probably tried 100 brownie recipes by now, looking for the one. I just never believe that I’ve found THE one even if it turns out a good. And every time I try something new, Sean will ask me about this recipe, “What about that one you made once?” He asks so often, I’ve given up the search for another brownie that might beat this one. (Not that I’m not still secretly experimenting.)

 

Whiskey instead of Vanilla

I like my brownies infused with whiskey, sometimes brandy, sometimes dark rum. Depends on my mood. Instead of vanilla extract that I can barely taste, I much enjoy the combination of chocolate and a good liquor. It feels more… grown up? I just love the flavor. To me vanilla is sacred, chocolate and vanilla is good, but chocolate and vanilla are both so strong I’d rather use something else to compliment the chocolate.

Find a good bottle you enjoy, sip it and dump it into the brownie batter, then sip some more while you bake.
