What is the secret of a good brownie?

Moncho López, owner and Alma mater from the bakery Yeast Mother and in love with this dessert, he tells us his secrets and the elaboration he makes.

As for chocolate, it must be of quality, with at least 70% pure and sugar-free cocoa. The butter can be with or without salt and added to the dough. The eggs, better organic.

In the United States they put nuts. But it is not mandatory.

Regarding the mixture of ingredients, the chocolate is first melted together with the butter and allowed to warm. Then, the eggs are added one by one and when everything is incorporated the sifted flour is added. At first, the mixture can move with a tongue, but then you have to do it with rods.

To bake it, the oven must be strong, at least 200-220 degrees, it is preferable that it is done in a convection oven and that during the baking it is generated crust. The brownie may rise during baking, but once it is taken out of the oven, lower. No need to rest.

- 3 eggs
- 1 cup (100 gr) sugar

We chop the chocolate and put it in a saucepan with the butter over medium heat, we move it frequently until we see that it has melted and acquires a smooth and uniform texture.

In a bowl or in an electric robot (KA), we put the eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla and beat it at medium speed until all the ingredients are incorporated (about 2 minutes).
Then we incorporate the chocolate and beat again until it is incorporated into the dough, finally add the flour and finish integrating.

We line a mold (20 × 28 cm) with baking paper, lightly grease it and pour the dough on it.
We put the source in the oven, preheated to 180º, in the low position of the oven and let it bake for 30 minutes, or until you click on the dough and leave the tester clean.
When finished we take it out of the oven and let it cool in the mold itself, after time we take it out and cut it into pieces.
