And add a good chocolate frosting on top and there’s no way that pan wont get devoured!
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar , packed
- 1 cup salted butter , melted
- 4 eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 6 Tbsp evaporated milk*
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- Dash salt
- 1/2 cup butter , room temperature
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- pinch of salt
- 2-3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 5-6 Tbsp milk or cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl add granulated and brown sugars and melted butter. Beat until well combined. Add eggs and egg yolk, beating after each addition. Add milk and vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix just until combined. The batter will be thick. Pour batter into a greased 9x13'' baking pan and spread into an even layer.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
Cream the butter until light. Add the cocoa powder and salt and beat until well combined. Add vanilla. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, mixing well until you reach your desired frosting consistency. Add more milk for softer frosting or more powdered sugar for firmer frosting. Spread frosting onto cooled brownies. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
