If you are looking for a rich, dark chocolate brownie. You found it right here. In most of my recipes I usually use regular unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder. Sometimes when I want a really deep flavor of chocolate, I use Dutch processed cocoa. You will find Dutch cocoa in many of the store bought cookies. It’s very mild and has the most amazing chocolate aroma. Give this fudgy brownie a try. Next time at the market, pick up a container of Dutch cocoa powder. It works in so many great recipes.
Fudgy Dark Chocolate Dutch Brownies
Servings 9 square brownies
- 1/2 cup vegan margarine or you can use butter
- 1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
- 1 cup pure cane sugar, or regular granulated sugar
- 2 large or extra large eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour, I used organic flour and sometimes 1/4 cup pastry flour with 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8X8 square pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
- In a medium saucepan, (I used a nonstick) On low to medium heat. Melt margarine or butter. Take off heat, add sugar and mix well. Make sure the egg mixture is cooled down. Add in eggs one at a time. Mix again. Add vanilla, salt, baking powder and flour. Gently mix well with a rubber spatula. Make sure all the dry ingredients are mixed into the wet. Try not to over mix though. When all is incorporated, pour into prepared pan.
- Bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Check after 20 minutes. Middle should look set and a toothpick should come out with moist to dry crumbs. If not yet done, put back into oven and bake until done. Test again.
- Cool in pan on a wire rack for at least 20 to 30 minutes. It’s easiest to cut up brownies with a plastic knife. Brownies don’t usually stick to the plastic knife.
Enjoy the fudgy yumminess!
