Find out how to make the PERFECT brownie recipe with a shiny crust! Look no further for an easy, perfectly chewy fudge brownie with the perfect crackling top every time! This recipe can easily serve a crowd if doubled with just as fascinating results!
Sure, I like a quick and easy brownie recipe without the addition of chocolate but did you know melted chocolate has a lot to do with the shiny crust you see on some brownies? Yea, maybe the way you beat the eggs with sugar or the chocolate you use can intensify the structure but I’m not going to get too fancy with chemistry or ingredients. I like to keep it simple and basic and a one-bowl tactic to make the perfect brownie recipe, (don’t worry you won’t need to do anything complicated to the batter in order for success.)
The Perfect Fudge Brownie Recipe
Allow me to say these brownies are everything a chewy brownie should taste like! Perfectly crisp crust, chewy middle and totally rich tasting! This is the only brownie recipe that I’ve been making lately and it’s pretty much fail proof. It bakes perfectly every time and even when doubled!
How to get a shiny crust on brownies:
I really have noticed that every time I make this brownie recipe I get a sheen on my crust and that’s not always possible with other brownie recipes. After reading this article on how to make brownies with a shiny crust, I was convinced melted chocolate was it! Melting chocolate can be as quick as measuring out some ingredients, when using the microwave and I like to do it right in a measuring cup, so if you think its too much work it’s really not.
How to make brownies for a crowd:
If you want to make a big batch of brownies, no problem! This recipe works perfect for a sheet pan of brownies without comprising on the taste or structure. Just double the recipe when making and pour into a greased 13 x 18″ baking pan and bake for 24 minutes. It makes the PERFECT fudge brownies for a crowd every time!
Is butter better to use in brownies than oil?
Butter can be pretty costly especially when you need 2 sticks of it in a normal batch. I like to use oil since it’s efficient and easier to work with, (less things to melt.) Besides even boxed brownies call for oil so I really wouldn’t stress about flavor since these turn out plenty of rich in flavor.
