King Arthur Flour Fudge Brownie Recipe

King Arthur Flour Fudge Brownie Recipe

We made King Arthur Flour’s Fudge Brownies for our Super Bowl party and our guests were impressed. They loved the brownies and so do I. They are fudgy, thick, loaded with chocolate, and simple to make. What’s not to love?

There is always a big debate surrounding what makes up the perfect brownie.  Cakey or fudgy brownies? These brownies are fudgy, but still rise up to please the cakey lovers.  The addition of cocoa and chocolate chips make these brownies extra rich and chocolaty. The shiny, crackly top also makes these brownies pretty to serve and fun to bite into.

If you are looking for a new brownie recipe to try or if you want to wow your special Valentine, try King Arthur Flour’s Fudge Brownies, they will not disappoint!

Fudgy Brownie Recipe on The BEST fudgy brownies!

King Arthur Fudge Brownies

Yield: Makes 24 brownies

Cook Time: 30 minutes


1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups Dutch-process cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon espresso powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups chocolate chips


1.  Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9″ x 13″ pan and set aside.

2. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, or in a saucepan set over low heat, melt the butter, then add the sugar and stir to combine. Return the mixture to the heat (or microwave) briefly, just until it’s hot (about 110°F to 120°F), but not bubbling; it’ll become shiny looking as you stir it. Heating this mixture a second time will dissolve more of the sugar, which will yield a shiny top crust on your brownies.

3.  Transfer the sugar mixture to a medium-sized mixing bowl, if you’ve heated it in a saucepan. Stir in the cocoa, baking powder, salt, espresso powder, and vanilla.

4. Whisk in the eggs, stirring until smooth.

5. Add the flour and chocolate chips. Stir until smooth.

6. Spoon the batter into prepared pans.

7.  Bake the brownies for about 30 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, or with just a few moist crumbs clinging to it. The brownies should feel set on the edges, and the center should look very moist, but not uncooked. Remove them from the oven and cool on a rack before cutting and serving.

  28. Elle — February 9, 2011 @ 9:47 am

    You can’t go wrong with KAF recipes. Is this the one from the bag? I’ve made it and loved it!

  29. megan — February 9, 2011 @ 9:59 am

    I like a recipe that makes a 9X11 size pan but still gives you a thick brownie. The espresso powder and chocolate chips take it over the top! YUM!

  30. Flourchild — February 9, 2011 @ 10:09 am

    We made brownies for the super bowl too. My 13 year old son did most of the work! We made the Hershey brownie recipe. It looks very similar to this one! I love them!! I only let myself have one warm with vanilla ice cream on top!!

  31. Lauren at KeepItSweet — February 9, 2011 @ 10:11 am

    I definitely am a fan of a more fudgey brownie so these would work for me:-) They look perfect.

  32. Joanne — February 9, 2011 @ 10:19 am

    I love fudgy brownies and these definitely look dense enough to warrant my love and affection!

  33. Shaina — February 9, 2011 @ 10:24 am

    Everyone has brownies today. I obviously need to get off my butt and bake some, and these look perfect.

  34. Lana — February 9, 2011 @ 10:40 am

    I vote for fudgy brownies! Otherwise, I’ll opt for chocolate cake:) Yours look really good – worth a try, especially knowing that I can coerce the girls to make them.

  35. Marly — February 9, 2011 @ 10:53 am

    Ah brownies. It’s so good to have so many recipes to try – it’s like the gift that keeps on giving! These look delicious. Can’t wait to try them (sans eggs of course!)

  36. EatLiveRun — February 9, 2011 @ 11:22 am

    I’m going to try these next time I have a brownie craving! Yours look delish :)

  37. Cookin' Canuck — February 9, 2011 @ 11:28 am

    I am always on the hunt for fudge-y brownies. It looks as though these may fit the bill.

  38. *Just Fran* — February 9, 2011 @ 11:33 am

    I am on the eternal quest for the perfect brownie. Adding this one to my list. Thanks!

  39. Natalie @ Will Jog For Food — February 9, 2011 @ 11:39 am

    Those look great! You would never think a behind the box recipe would be so good!

  40. carrian — February 9, 2011 @ 11:53 am
