Brownies are a classic one-bowl recipe, and I felt we here at Strudel and Streusel would be remiss if we didn’t include an epic, yet simple, brownie recipe to highlight this month. As far as I’m concerned, the ideal brownie should have a crispy sides and a slightly crackly top, with tender chewy cake – and of course, it should be deeply chocolatey. I also like a thicker brownie – nothing against thinner brownies, there is a bit more crisp to them – but I want a brownie that I can really spend some time with, you know what I mean?
Happily, this super simple recipe includes all of the above characteristics, with one wonderful add in: chocolate chips, so that you also get little pockets of joy folded in. What more could any of us needed?
Strudel and Streusel are two friends living in different cities, sharing a love of baking (and butter) through this blog. With Streusel in Denver, and Strudel in Seattle, we've found our little site to be a great way to stay in touch, share recipes we love, and talk about experiences in our respective cities.
