Chocolate buttercream frosting is the perfect addition to these cake-like brownies.
3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups powdered sugar
2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8-inch square baking pan. Set aside.
Place 3 ounces chocolate into bowl. Microwave 1 minute on Medium (50% power). Stir; continue microwaving, stirring at 1 minute intervals, 2-3 minutes or until chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside.
Place 1/4 cup butter into another bowl. Whisk butter until soft and creamy. Add sugar; continue beating until well mixed. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add 1/4 cup milk, corn syrup and 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat until well mixed. Add 3 ounces melted chocolate; continue beating until well mixed. Stir in flour and baking powder until well mixed.
Pour brownie mixture into prepared pan. Spread mixture evenly in pan. Bake 23-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (Do not over-bake.) Cool completely.
Combine all frosting ingredients except milk in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled brownies.
- To substitute unsweetened cocoa for unsweetened baking chocolate, use 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa plus 1 tablespoon butter for each ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate.
- Reduce baking temperature by 25°F if using dark or nonstick baking pan.
- To prepare brownies in 13x9-inch baking pan, double all ingredients. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
