Recipe: Chocolate truffle brownies
- 8 oz. bittersweet chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids)
- 6-1/2 tbsp. unsalted butter
- 3 eggs
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- Cocoa powder, to dust
1 Preheat the oven to 300F. Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water. Do not let the base of the bowl touch the water. Stir until melted. Set aside to cool.
2 Put the eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl and whisk until pale and creamy. Sift in the flour and fold in gently. Finally, fold in the molten chocolate and mix until smooth.
3 Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. The brownies should have risen slightly.
4 Let cool completely, then dust with cocoa powder. Cut into 9 squares and serve.
Makes about 9 squares
