The best fudge brownie recipe ever: Watch out!
First, you should know that the name “fudge brownie” is a bit of a misnomer. A classic chocolate fudge brownie has no flour in it at all; just sugar, butter, eggs, and cocoa powder. Fudge is a type of candy (usually with peanuts) made by boiling sugar and water until it reaches the soft-ball stage (which is when the sugar is at 250°F). Once the sugar is sufficiently melted, it’s removed from the heat and mixed with butter and a little bit of vanilla until smooth. Then, it’s poured into a pan and let to cool and set.

A few tips before you begin
You can make these fudge brownies as large or as small as you like. If you’re serving a crowd, use an 8-inch square baking pan. For smaller batches, like for a party or bake sale, use a 9-inch round baking pan. – Make sure you use genuine cocoa powder in this recipe. There are many people out there who use roasted cocoa powder which has a very different flavor from natural unsweetened cocoa powder. Using the Maya Mix makes sure that you’ll get consistent results every time you make this recipe.
For super moist fudge brownies, it’s important to use butter instead of a different type of oil such as coconut oil.. This is one of the few baking recipes where I use large eggs in. Or two small ones. The extra liquid makes the brownies fudgier. If you want it to be on the cakey side, It’s easy to over- or under-cook when you’re baking.
Using cocoa powder instead of melted chocolate in this recipe helps keep the texture of the fudge brownies super moist.
You want the fudge brownies to be almost firm in the center when you take them out of the oven. Let the fudge brownies cool completely before removing them from the baking dish and slicing. If you’re looking for a twist on the classic fudge brownie recipe, you can add a lot of different things to the batter. You can add chopped nuts, dried fruit, or even some chocolate chips. And if you want to make fudge brownies even more decadent, you can top them with whipped cream or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream before serving. Enjoy!
And there’s more!
You don’t want to just make one pan of fudge brownies, do you? Here are a few tips to make a bigger batch. – Make sure you use a baking dish that can hold a larger amount of batter. An 8-inch square baking pan can only hold about 2-3 cups of batter; a 9-inch round baking pan can hold about 3.5 cups. – Double the recipe and use a 9 by 13-inch baking dish. Make sure to increase the baking time by about 10 minutes. – Use two 9-inch baking dishes and bake for about 30 minutes. – Use an 11-inch baking dish and bake for about 45 minutes.
Ready to try this recipe? We hope you’re excited. These fudge brownies are amazing and worth the wound on your pride over buying a premix in a box. They’re dense and rich, but still super moist. They’re gooey and chocolatey, and you absolutely cannot tell your mother in law that these came from a box..
