King Arthur's Fudge Brownies

Seriously. Ya gotta make these. The folks over at King Arthur Flour know their stuff when it comes to baking. They've even gone so far as to stamp their recipe for Fudge Brownies with a "KAF Guaranteed" label. Now that takes guts. Of course, there's no way the company can guarantee things won't go awry due to user error, so I won't fault them for my brownies not sporting that beautiful shiny top crust. Nor can I blame them for the brownies not delivering the perfect balance of fudgy and cakey. 'Cause you see, I messed up. Dull tops and dense fudginess can happen when:
  1. You don't follow directions very well for melting the sugar & butter
  2. You FORGET to add baking powder (oh snap!)

(I omitted the chocolate chips...that might've been overkill.) Were they tasty? You betcha. Would I make them again? You KNOW I will, because I'm stubborn like that and am determined to get results that "look like the picture!"

  1. Oh, yeah...those are THE BEST!!! Try then topped with the ganache icing. Oh my! I can't make then often because I will no longer fit in my clothes if I do!
