how to make the perfect fudgy chocolate brownies from scratch

Nothing compares to biting into a rich and slightly fudgy piece of chocolate perfection. This recipe is a classic and it makes the most decadent and delicious brownies you’ll ever taste.

This is my go-to chocolate desert that I like to share with friends and family when they come over. It’s also the one desert my husband loves and asks for all the time, even though he’s not into deserts. He WILL eat that brownie, he would eat the entire tray.

Fudgy vs Cakey Brownies

Depending on how you prefer this chocolate-y treat, there are two main categories of ingredients that play an important role in the consistency of your brownies. Fat and flour.

A fudgy brownie typically has a higher fat to flour ratio compared to a cakey brownie, meaning if you love that silky decadent texture of a fudgy brownie, you’ll need to cut the flour and add more fat.

And you can do that in different ways.

  1. Decrease the amount of cacao powder, and add more chocolate instead. A high quality chocolate bar is always made with cacao butter, which means that adding chocolate adds moisture to your batter, keeping your brownies rich and fudgy.
  2. Add more butter and decrease the amount of flour. This one is pretty simple and always works. Just like with the chocolate, make sure you use a high quality, high fat content type butter to get the right texture and consistency.

How to Make the Perfect Brownies

When it comes to consistency, my personal preference is a moist, fudgy interior and a slightly airy exterior. The best of both worlds. This recipe is really easy to make and takes about 15 mins to prep and 25 minutes in the oven. Make sure to read the notes below for tips and variations.
