24 brownies


  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 10 ounce semisweet chocolate, chopped

  • 6 tablespoon butter

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 1 cup stout beer


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan. Line bottom with parchment paper, extending paper over two sides. In a medium bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, and salt.

  2. Set aside 1/4 cup of the chopped chocolate. In a small saucepan combine remaining chocolate and butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until smooth. Cool 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl beat brown sugar, eggs, and egg yolks with a mixer on medium-high 3 minutes, scraping bowl as needed. Beat in chocolate mixture on low just until combined. Add half of the flour mixture, the stout, and remaining flour mixture, beating after each addition just until combined. Spread in prepared pan.

  4. Bake 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs. Sprinkle reserved chocolate over hot brownies. Cool on a wire rack. Run a thin knife along edges of pan. Using parchment paper, lift out brownies. Cut into bars.
