TWD - Classic Brownies



Our assignment for this week's Tuesday with Dorie was to make Classic Brownies, chosen by Anne Strawberry.  There is a lot of divided opinion as to what is a "classic brownie", but these are made with chocolate, no cocoa, contain walnuts, and are cakey rather than fudgy.

Being an Australian, I don't have fixed views on what a brownie should be like, so I enjoyed these.  My only disappointment is that there weren't enough of them!

Thanks to our host, Anne, for choosing this recipe - it will be on her website.  To see what everyone else thought of these brownies, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

Yum!

I'm working up the courage to make these...that's a whole lot of chocolate going on. Happy that you liked them...am sure Mark will love them as well...when I finally get them made.

I'm glad they were a hit with you! Until I started reading food blogs, I didn't know that people had such strong opinions about brownies. Most of them are pretty good in their own way.

Karen said...

I agree! There were not enough!

Cindy said...

I thought they were perfect, but I do love brownies!
Have a great week.

I may not have baked them long enough because mine were wet and fudgy inside. I know Dorie said a knife should come out dry but I had already gone over 5 minutes without it coming out dry. I took them out of the oven. I love them this way.

Yours look delectable.

Judy said...

Looking good! Mine disappeared way too quickly!

The fact that you wanted more is definitely proof of how good these were! :D

I think I would be very happy with these as classic brownies but I feel the same as you - never grew up making them so don't feel any strong allegiances - just want them rich, chocolatey and fudgy! Not too much to ask

Clivia said...

Your brownies look gorgeous!

The Blonde Duck said...

Happy Tuesday!

Becky said...

I enjoyed these very much. Next time I'd like to play around and add chocolate chunks for fun.

Glad you enjoyed them. I agree...there can never be enough brownies.

Anne said...

I'm with you, a rich chocolate brownie is yummy whether is cakey or fudgy. Your brownies look great, thanks for baking with me!

Pamela said...

When the good stuff is gone, I often complain, too. They looked great!

Heavenly Housewife said...

In all honesty, the only brownies I've ever made came out of a box LOL (I really am my mother's daughter I guess).
*kisses* HH

Looking good - guess you'll have to make another batch soon! ;)

Amanda said...

There can be quite a lot of discussion about the correct consistency of brownies with some people being utterly pedantic about them. I, on the other hand, will very happily eat a brownie of any style - especially if someone else has made it.

Lauren said...

My mother loves brownies (probably more than any other baked good), so they were a common treat when I was a kid. She prefers the fudgy ones and I have to say that usually I agree! However, I've had some amazing cakey ones (people in Kansas are big on brownies, too), so I like to think I have an open brownie-mind. :-)

Jennifer said...

Love the look of your brownies!!!!:)

Julia @Mélanger said...

Oh my gosh, classic brownies indeed. These would last 5 minutes in my house.

Elaine said...

Those look so deliciously gooey!
