  • Hand or stand mixer
  • Baking dish


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 oz semi-sweet chocolate bar, finely chopped see photo
  • 3/4 tsp maldon salt, plus more for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with butter. Line with parchment. Butter the parchment.
  • Add sugar to a large bowl or stand mixer.
  • Add butter to a medium skillet. Turn the heat on medium-high. When the butter is fully melted and starts to brown on the edges, swirl the pan. Continue to swirl the pan until the butter turns a deep brown color and smells very nutty. You may have to pull the skillet off the burner at times, too keep the butter from burning. DO NOT LET IT BURN.
  • Pour the brown butter over the sugar. Using a hand mixer or paddle attachement of stand mixture, beat the sugar and butter together until combined well, about 1 minute. Add the vanilla. Beat another 25 seconds until combined.
  • Add the eggs to the sugar mixture. Mix on high for exactly two minutes until the mixture is well combined and fluffy.
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, and chopped chocolate. Use a spatula to gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Add the salt. Fold a few more time to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 28-30 minutes or until the top is shiny. Baking the brownies correctly is imperative for a gooey brownie. If you overbake, they will be dry. Any longer than 32 minutes in the oven is too long. If you stick a toothpick in the brownies, it should come out gooey but not wet. If it comes out dry, you've cooked them too long.
  • Let the brownies rest for AT LEAST one hour before cutting. They need to be completely cooled before you cut into them.
