The Famous Fudge Brownies
3 sticks butter
3 cups granulated sugar
7 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cup cocoa (use the best cocoa you can find!)
dash of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spay 9 x 13 baking pan with pan release.
Melt butter in small pan on stovetop over low heat. While butter is melting, break eggs into mixing bowl and begin beating.
Sift flour, cocoa and salt together.
When butter has finished melting, turn off burner but leaving pan on stove, stir in sugar until butter and sugar are combined.
Add butter, sugar mixture to eggs and continue beating. Add extracts.
Turn mixer up to medium speed and continue to beat several minutes.
Turn mixer as low as possible and carefully add flour mixture. Once ingredients are integrated, turn mixer up again and beat for several minutes.
Pour mixture into baking pan. If you choose, add a sprinkle of toppings. Chocolate Chips and/or toasted Almonds, Walnuts or Pecans are yummy.
Bake for 42 minutes. Do not over bake. You’ll like a fudgy inside. Fudge and cold milk together are a winning combination no matter what time of day it is.
