Anne Quatrano's Jumbo Brownies

posted in: Uncategorized | 2

Atlanta has many nice and tasty restaurants, and even though I can’t speak for this one personally – if this girl is the dessert person – then it can’t be anything but delicious!

I made these and gave them out (and ate one or two, and stuck the end pieces in my freezer).  First time I have gone to Caribou just for 2 shots of espresso.

I got 12-16 brownies out of a 9×13 pan (so these are big).  And rich.  And needs ice cream (or milk).

1 lb unsalted butter

20 oz semi-sweet chocolate (next time I would add in more dark)

1 cup flour

1 T baking powder

1 tsp salt

6 eggs

2 1/2 cups sugar

2 T vanilla

2 T espresso

6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 heaping cup chopped walnuts

350, 9×13 pan lined with foil, sprayed with pam

Melt the butter and 20 oz of chocolate.  Whisk together dry ingredients.  Beat eggs and sugar for about 5 minutes until light in color and frothy in texture.  Add vanilla and espresso.  Mix in melted chocolate.  Fold in chips and nuts. 

Bake for about an hour.  Cut and serve.

    Holy cow. I avoid any recipe that calls for a pound of butter 🙂

    • Yup – its a tough one! 🙂 I thought I read it wrong at first – but they are so good! And it was unsalted. And I did share!
