'brownies' on Serious Eats

Creole Brownies

Simple but smart, these fudgy brownies from the Back in the Day Cookbook are coated with a decadent ganache infused with chicory coffee that takes them from clever to Creole. Cocoa nibs give them a "crunchy, yet tender" texture. More

Mark Bittman's Brownies

Bittman's Brownie recipe is a gem, simple and tasty enough to give even the most apprehensive baker that much needed boost of kitchen confidence. Bittman's straight talk advice: "Err on the side of underbaking: An overcooked brownie is dry and cakey, while an undercooked brownie is gooey and delicious" makes for some damned fine brownies.

Perfect Brownies

These brownies are not a mocha-macchiato-molten-center brownie, a death-by-triple-truffle brownie, or a cheesecake-chocolate-crack brownie. They're just a good 'ole basic brownie. No hoopla, nothing fancy, but soul satisfying good. More

"Mama's" Mint Sticks

Few things can put me in the holiday spirit as quickly as a mint chocolate one-two punch. While Holiday Peppermint 'Crack' delivers on the flavor combo, sometimes you want a lot more chocolate. Recently when I was chatting with Serious Eater CityMinx about favorite homemade desserts she raved about mint sticks—a triple-layer, intensely chocolatey fudgy brownie bar—and very kindly offered to share her grandma's recipe.

Cook the Book: Goat Cheese Brownies

These Goat Cheese Brownies are an ideal introduction to the world of goat-centric desserts, all moist and chocolatey upfront but made with enough chèvre and goat butter to give them a bigger goat flavor. Adding goat cheese in place of some of the butter makes for brownies with an intriguingly light texture—not chewy and dense or crumbly and cake-like—these have a lovely, almost melting softness about them.

Gluten-Free Tuesday: Maple Blondies

I used "Grade B" maple syrup in the blondies. This dark grade of maple syrup has a more robust flavor than the more common Grade A. If you can't find Grade B in your area, don't fret. Grade A works well, lending the bars a more delicate maple flavor. Just don't use imitation maple syrup. For these bars, you want the real thing. More
