further adventures in cooking

I made Alton Brown's Cocoa Brownies last night. (I was bored.) I've never made brownies from scratch before, always from a box. I may never make boxed brownies again.

darkwolfie's reaction was awesome. He said, "I want you to make these brownies every day for the rest of your life!" They really did come out awesome -- fudgy without being rawish, the way box brownies sometimes are. The surface doesn't have that shiny surface like box brownies (actually, it looks very much like a cake), but they're OMFG good.

I'm going to try the recipe again, mostly changing the eggs -- I had jumbo eggs in the fridge, and the recipe calls for large, so there may be more egg in these brownies than is actually called for. I might try a 9x9 pan instead of the 8x8 called for, too. They were a little thicker than I'm used to.

Overall, a total success, I must say. Num.
