  • Hey there! I am Hilah, and today on Hilah Cooking I am going to share a delicious, fudgy,

  • perfect brownie recipe with y’all. I had a request on Facebook for brownies and while

  • I do have the most fabulous brownie recipe in the world right up here in my little noggin,

  • I haven't actually shared it on the show. I have only put it in the Learn to Cookbook,

  • and in the newsletter like two years ago, so I figured you know what, it is time to

  • let these brownies be free, go out like little butterflies flapping around, sprinkling chocolate

  • bits, and pecans and stuff like that all over everybody’s heads and just generally spreading

  • joy thought the Internet world, so that is what I am going to do right now. Let’s get

  • started. Get your chocolatey mouths ready to eat chocolate!

  • [MUSIC]

  • [How To Make Brownies From Scratch]

  • >> Hilah: First things first, I have got a stick of butter, well, ok, a quarter pound,

  • and I am gonna cream that. I have just had this out for about an hour at room temperature

  • to get a little bit soft. Hang on to that, and well use that to grease our pan, and

  • I could totally do this with a mixer, but I think y’all can see it better in a glass

  • bowl, so this is just gonna take a while.

  • [PROJECTOR SOUND]

  • >> Hilah: Ok, once your butter is kind of fluffed up like this. You are going to add

  • some sugar, and cream it around just to get it nice and creamy. That’s good, and I am

  • going to add an egg, and you see how simple this recipe is. This is, this is actually

  • the recipe that I, this is probably one of the first recipes I ever made. I have been

  • making these brownies since I was like, 7 or 8 years old. So, it would be a good thing

  • to get your kids involved in to. I could do it, they can certainly do it. Ok, thoroughly

  • incorporated, and add vanilla, and you know, you can eyeball it. I just did. Then we add

  • the dry ingredients and brownies, you are just going to add, at least in my brownies,

  • flour, and cocoa powder. The main difference between brownies and cakes is that brownies

  • don’t really have any leavening agents in them. There is no baking soda or baking powder,

  • and that is what gives them that really dense fudgy texture as opposed to a light and fluffy

  • cake texture. Son of a . . . ! Don’t cuss while you are making brownies, or the brownies

  • will turn out terrible. That’s an old wives tale that I just made up. Just make sure all

  • the flour, and everything, is mixed in really well, fab, ok, and it is very stiff and thick,

  • and that’s just perfect! I have got a pan here. I am using an 11 x 7 pan, an 8 x 8 pan

  • will work also, and this is why we saved our little butter wrapper. This is what my mom

  • always used to do. Just use that to grease your pan. Make sure you get the corners really

  • well. If you wanted to, you could even line it with foil and then grease the foil, and

  • then you could lift your whole pan of brownies out at once, but this works for my purposes

  • just fine. Ok, and I am going to put some nuts just on top, so I can just do it in half.

  • If you wanted to add some nuts in at the end before you put it in the pan, that’s totally

  • fine, but I am not a huge fan of nuts in my brownies although I like how they look. So,

  • I am just going to put some nuts on half, and I am using pecans, but walnuts are also

  • really nice because pecans are getting expensy yall. I don’t know if you have notices,

  • but they are like 12 bucks a pound now. Good lord! Ok, cutesy tutesy. I am just going to

  • put these in the oven and bake them for, oh, about 25 minutes.

  • [MUSIC]

  • >> Hilah: Ok, brownies. These actually have been cooling off for a while, and not hot.

  • I just was faking that. So, I am going to go ahead and cut into them, a little crusty

  • edges. Oh, man the little inside is all gooey. Look at that, how moist and fudgy and delicious.

  • A little crunchy edges, I like little crunchy edges and I go for that. Well, let’s just

  • see what weve got here. Man, I just think these are the perfect brownies, and they are

  • just like so rich and fudgy, and the little crusty edges. They are wonderful. I hope you

  • try them. I hope you like them. If you want a printable recipe, you can get that at hilahcooking.com

  • along with other tips and stuff, and also if you make this, and you want to share a

  • picture of it, you can do that on Instagram and hashtag @hilahcooking and it will go up
