Brownies With no Cocoa Powder

Brownies with no cocoa powder!! Ever wonder how bakeries get their brownies so fudgy and delicious? Without even using a dusting of cocoa powder?! Well, you are in luck because today I am going to spill the tea on all the little secrets that you need to know to make the best bakery worthy dark chocolate brownies!

Bakery style brownies with no cocoa powder
To make this decadent and rich brownie recipe, you will need the folowing ingredients:

70% bittersweet chocolate– Because this is a brownie recipe, you will need to use good quality chocolate.
Butter– Butter will give that rich flavor and texture to these brownies.
Light brown sugar– Brown sugar is moist and will yield a better, fudgier, and softer brownie. The brown sugar also helps give that extra depth of flavor to our brownies.
Eggs– The eggs are what is going to hold this brownie together.
Granulated sugar– The granulated sugar helps keep the brownie moist as well and create that beautiful crinkly top.
Salt– Always add salt to your sweets! It balances them out perfectly 🙂
Vanilla– Vanilla helps add a little more depth of flavor as well.
FLour– This recipe doesn’t require too much flour, just enough to give it some structure and keep it fudge as well.
This is one of my favorite brownie recipe because it is very simple to make. The hardest to do here yet again is going to be to wait for this bakery style brownie to cool down before cutting it.

I personally recommend making it the night before after brushing your teeth. (little tip here on how to not over eat at night. Always brush your teeth before starting baking something this delicious!) So make this the night before that way it will have enough time to cool down before you cut into it.

First you will want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, then grease and like an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper. Set this aside.

The next step is to melt the chocolate. Since we are making a bakery style brownie recipe, we are going t melt the chocolate in a Bain Marie. This means melting your chocolate in a hot water bath.

Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and place it over almost simmering water. Stir the chocolate frequently until it is completely melted. Remove the bowl from the heat and add in the butter and the brown sugar, whisk until combined.
