Strawberry Brownies

Strawberry Brownies

YIELD 16 brownies

Ingredients

Brownies

  • 200 g (7 oz.) bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 150 g (1 and 1/3 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (175g) granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup (105g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Chocolate Strawberry Layer

  • About 20 medium-large strawberries , stem removed and halved
  • 230 g (8 oz.) bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Make the brownies: Preheat oven to 350°F/180°. Line an 8×8-inch pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides for lifting the brownies out after baking.

  2. In a large heat-proof bowl place chocolate and butter, and melt in the microwave in 20-30 second-intervals, stirring in between each interval, until melted (or, set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally). Add sugar and whisk until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking vigorously for a few times until well combined. Add flour and salt and fold, using a rubber spatula, just until combined.

  3. Pour batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the brownie should come out with moist crumbs, not dry. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Make the chocolate strawberry layer: When the brownies are completely cooled, place strawberries cut side down evenly over the brownies, close to one another. Use enough strawberries to cover the entire surface of the cake (it doesn’t need to be perfect).

  5. In a saucepan over low heat, heat cream until it bubbles on the edge, then remove from heat and immediately add chocolate, stirring until melted. If needed, place back over heat for a few seconds to help chocolate melt completely. Pour mixture evenly over the strawberries. It might not cover all of the strawberries, which is not an issue.

  6. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours until completely set, then slice into 16 squares.
  7. Keep brownies in the refrigerator, in an airtight container, for up to 2 days.
