How To Bake Brownies Like Katharine Hepburn
In the mood to make brownies like Katharine Hepburn? They are romantically delicious and super easy to make. When I saw this recipe I knew I had to make it. I’ve made so many varieties of brownie recipes in my life but knowing that Katharine loved this recipe made this even more special.
I love how super easy they are to make. Why would you get a boxed brownie recipe when you can whip these up so fast? They are not overly sweet and gooey – just the way I love them. Oh, and those crispy edges – heaven!
With one in hand as I write this post, I somehow feel nostalgic knowing that Kate loved this recipe – it was her go to and insisted on certain criteria which in her words is – ”And don’t overbake them! They should be moist, not cakey!”
Here’s a quick video I made to show you how quick and easy they are to make.
There’s nothing “gourmet” about these brownies. They are just down to earth goodness, much like Kate herself. I think that’s why I love them even more.
Here’s the recipe too. I first saw this recipe over here. We love this recipe. It’s brownie perfection!
- ½ cup cocoa
- ½ cup butter (1 stick)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ cup flour
- 1 cup chopped or broken up walnuts or pecans
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Pinch of salt
- Heat oven to 325 degrees.
- Melt butter in a saucepan with cocoa and stir until smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a large bowl. Whisk in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, combine sugar, flour, nuts and salt. Add to the cocoa-butter mixture. Stir until just combined.
- Pour into a greased 8 x 8-inch-square pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes. Do not overbake; the brownies should be gooey. Let cool, then cut into bars.
PIN It for later!
