Baking with Julia
Like the end to the group, the brownies are bittersweet.
My brownies took 50 minutes to bake, and some of them were a bit crumbly. Not sure why …
Mine took an extra 10 minutes too…I just covered the edges with the foil overhang.
Didn’t the recipe say 20-22 minutes and no more? So I did 22–they were VERY fudgy. I chilled them overnight and they sliced beautifully. Liked them a lot. But Dorie’s Tribute to Katharine Hepburn are still my favorite go-to brownies–and they are a lot cheaper to make with just cocoa. ;)
Interesting. You’re right, the book does say 20-22 minutes. But when Dorie posted the recipe on her blog (which is what I was working from), she says about 40 minutes.
So I baked mine for 30 minutes and they definitely looked done on top. After sampling one (still warm, I can’t help myself when it comes to brownies), I kind of wish I’d pulled them out sooner. They’re certainly okay brownies, but not the really fudgy sort that I like best.
I baked mine an extra 20 minutes and they were still gooey in the middle. Taste fine, but not my favorite brownie.
I love this recipe and will be making it this weekend for maybe the 15th time. I usually switch it up a bit- sub 2 ounces of the bittersweet for semi sweet, bake them in a slightly smaller pan for thicker brownies -they end up cooking longer. I like them a little under done and then best after a night in the fridge.
These were pretty thin in the specified pan. Good though!
These were wonderful, I did have to bake an extra 5 minutes though. Very rich and fudgy. They are a bit hit with the whole family!
