Valerie’s Gigantic Fudge Brownies – Recipe

jumbo fudgy browniesIngredients:

  • 4 sticks organic sweet cream unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 pounds semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup King Arthur all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large organic eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons strong-brewed espresso
  • 6 ounces Nestle Toll House semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
  • 1 cup walnut halves, lightly toasted and coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray a 9-by-13-inch glass or ceramic baking dish with cooking spray. In a double boiler, melt the butter with the chopped chocolate over low heat. In a small bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, using a handheld mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar at medium-high speed until pale and thick, 4 minutes. Beat in the vanilla and espresso. Add the flour mixture and beat until just incorporated. Beat in the melted chocolate at medium speed. Using a spoon, stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  3. Scrape the batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake in the center of the oven for about 1 hour, until the top is shiny and lightly cracked, the edges are set and the center is still a bit jiggly. Transfer the dish to a rack and let cool completely. Cut the brownie into 12 large rectangles and serve.
