Sugar and Plumm Triple Chocolate Brownie
Even people who claim they "aren’t chocolate people" (it’s a nice lie, isn’t it?) will fall in love with this decadent piece of chocolaty goodness. The geniuses at Sugar and Plumm don’t mess around when it comes to desserts, and now you don’t have to, either.
- 1 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 2 1/4 Cups unsalted butter
- 19 Ounces bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
- 8 Ounces unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
- 2 Teaspoons salt
- 7 large eggs, room temperature
- 2 1/4 Cups sugar
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray, line with parchment paper, and spray again. Set aside.
Meanwhile, sift together the flour and baking powder and set aside. Melt the butter, bittersweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and salt together in a double-boiler or in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water, stirring occasionally to blend. When completely melted and smooth, remove from the heat.
Put the eggs in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and whisk at medium speed until frothy. With the machine running, add the sugar and continue to whisk until the mixture is pale yellow, thick, and doubled in volume, 8 minutes. Add the vanilla and mix to incorporate. Turn the mixer speed to low, add the melted chocolate in a slow, steady stream, and whisk for 2 minutes. Remove the bowl from the mixer, fold in the flour mixture, and chocolate chips.
Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes, then rotate the pan and bake until a tester comes out barely clean, another 10 minutes. The surface should be dry to the touch. Cool in the pan and serve.
