I made Barefoot Contessa's Outrageous Brownie yesterday.
My friend Anne told me about this recipe last week. I have never even heard of it. Seeing that it has almost 500 reviews, I felt like I have missed the boat.
Time to catch up.
This brownie, like any other brownie, I'm sure, is very easy to put together.
Also like most brownie, its ingredients is mostly chocolate and butter.
The full recipe uses 1 lb of butter. ONE POUND!?!
Though horrified, I decided to proceed. Making 1/4 recipe only.
I didn't have semi sweet chocolate on hand, so I used a combo of bittersweet and white chocolate.
First melt the chocolate and butter over double boiler. Once it's melted and cooled slightly, add in the eggs, vanilla, and sugar.
Then cooled it down a bit more, add in the flour, baking powder, and salt combo. Finally, add in the chopped walnuts.
The recipe said to bake for 35 minutes. But it took mine 50 minutes to get from this...
... to this.
It is really good. Chewy, chocolate-y. It is the perfect afternoon (or anytime) snack. I was craving chocolate over the weekend and this outrageous brownie will more than satisfy that craving!
