TWD: Baking With Julia – Best Ever Brownies

by Jessica on November 20, 2012

Best Ever Brownies from My Baking Heart

Another attempt in my never-ending quest to find the perfect brownie… today’s TWD features Julia’s ‘Best Ever Brownie’.

While they didn’t end up as our ‘perfect’ one, it’s definitely a brownie to be reckoned with. The preparation is a little different in that the egg whites are whipped before being added to the batter, but oddly enough, this doesn’t provide you with a cakey brownie. They left the oven super-fudgy, nicely dense and were the perfect sweet treat as we waited in line for Breaking Dawn, Part II… our final annual ‘Midnight Movie’ outing. 🙂

I like your comment: it’s definitely a brownie to be reckoned with.
It was but I wish mine had turned out a little better.
well done on yours though – they look delish.

Your brownies are perfect. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such perfectly cut pieces. Beautiful! It is how I dream my brownies will be.(but never are) Great job!

Ooh these look really fudgy – the whipped egg whites are really unique!

Were you a little sad that the whole Twilight madness is over? I have mixed feelings about it but the ending of this one made it a little emotional for me 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving Jessica!

Perfect brownies in every way. Beautiful presentation.

Chocolate chip cookies and brownies seem to require the most ‘quests’. I think I found my go-to brownie. Perfect pics of perfect brownies.

Beautiful Brownies! I think I baked mine a bit longer, they were definitely more cakey than yours.


18 Cher November 27, 2012 at 8:31 pm

Oh – I love that they were your standing in line treat for the movies. My girls would love it if I sent them these brownies for that 🙂

I made these too but the middle inside was so gooey I thought they were underdone. How did you get them to be so solid? Did you bake them much longer than recommended? I don’t know if it is because I didn’t beat the eggs enough or what. Loved the movie. I thought they wrapped the series up nicely.
