Prince Charming and I love brownies! But not any brownie will do. We do not like the cake-like brownies that crumble when you pick them up…too dry. We prefer the brownie that somewhat melts in your hand, leaving a chocolate residue. Enter: my Ooey Gooey Brownie recipe.
This recipe was acquired by Prince Charming while he was still single and waiting for his Lady in Waiting. And ever since he found his Lady in Waiting, she has been making these brownies for him (and herself).
What you’ll need:
- 1 2/3 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup butter (sometimes I use 1/2 butter, 1/2 coconut oil)
- 2 Tblsp water
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/3 cups flour
- 3/4 cup cocoa
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup of walnuts (which are optional)
What you’ll do:
Preheat your oven to 350°. Beat sugar, butter, water, eggs and vanilla together. In a seperate bowl, sift together cocoa, flour, salt and baking powder. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and beat until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips (and nuts if desired). Pour into an 8×8 pan and bake at 350° for 18-25 minutes.
I usually bake mine for the full 25 minutes. Remember that because these are classified as ooey gooey, when you stick a toothpick in to test if they are done, it will come out…you guessed it…ooey and gooey.
I hope you enjoy them as much as Prince Charming and I do!
And PS – they are even more delicious served with cold vanilla ice cream (organic of course:)
