  • (hip hop music)

  • Hey everyone, my name is Jesse,

  • and today, I'm gonna be testing four famous

  • celebrity brownie recipes, to see

  • which one is actually the best.

  • I'll be testing recipes from Gordon Ramsay,

  • Guy Fieri, Ayesha Curry,

  • and Posh Spice herself, Victoria Beckham.

  • I measure out all the ingredients,

  • as the recipe states, to level the playing field,

  • and I got three brownie lovers in the office

  • to test them out in a blind taste test.

  • -Did someone say, "Brownies?"

  • So, which celebrity has the best brownie recipe?

  • Let's get baking.

  • Up first is Gordon Ramsay.

  • He starts by combining butter

  • and sugar in a large bowl, and beating that

  • with electric mixer until it's nice and fluffy.

  • To that, he adds melted chocolate,

  • and beats it again to combine.

  • It's kind of chunky, so I gave it a few stirs.

  • To that, add salt, vanilla extract,

  • cocoa powder, and flour, and mix that all up, until smooth.

  • Add some eggs.

  • Mix it again until it gets nice and fudgey.

  • Add some milk, if it needs to be thinned out a little bit.

  • And then you're gonna add a shit ton of dried cherries.

  • Seriously, a lot of dried cherries.

  • Pour that into a lined baking tin.

  • Smooth it out, so it bakes nice and even.

  • And pop it in the oven.

  • Once baked, put some edible glitter,

  • Pop Rocks, and sprinkles on top

  • because you know, regular brownies aren't enough.

  • This is like a child's imagination of space.

  • It looks like a kid's brownie.

  • Oh God, it crunched.

  • What the heck did I just bite into?

  • Oh my God, is that Pop Rocks?

  • Oh, that's really weird.

  • There's something else in here.

  • This is cherry instead of chocolate?

  • That's good.

  • Cherries in brownies are a 100% yes.

  • Ugh, the fruit.

  • t's pretty good.

  • Just leave the cherries on the side.

  • Otherwise, pretty freaking delicious. (smacks lips)

  • [Jesse] Guy Fieri starts by combining

  • cut rhubarb, water, and sugar, in a large pot,

  • and cooking it down 'til it turns into a nice compote.

  • Meanwhile, you're gonna combine chili powder,

  • salt, flour, cinnamon, and baking powder,

  • and sift that all, so there is no chunks in it.

  • Set that aside, then combine butter, white sugar

  • and beat that together with electric beaters

  • until it's nice and fluffy.

  • Add some eggs, and continue beating it

  • until it gets even fluffier.

  • Add rum, vanilla extract, and then bring back

  • that compote you made, and add melted chocolate to it.

  • Stir it together.

  • It'll look kinda weird, but add it to the eggs,

  • and fold that in, until it's nice and sweet.

  • Add some flour, and fold it again

  • until it's nice, fudgy, and looks like a nice batter.

  • Add chocolate and walnuts, and stir it once more.

  • Bring in a pan that you lined with parchment paper.

  • Put it in there, and pop it in the oven.

  • There you have it.

  • Brownies, that'll take you straight to Flavor Town.

  • The crust on top is beautiful.

  • I can really figure out my life, just looking at this crust.

  • Mmm!

  • Yes!

  • -here's some kind of like, cinnamon in it.

  • It doesn't really taste like a brownie.

  • And it doesn't have the texture of a brownie.

  • It's more of like, a cake.

  • ou can hear how sticky,

  • and like, moist this brownie is, just listen.

  • [Jesse] Up next, is Ayesha Curry,

  • with her horchata brownies.

  • She starts by combining butter and chocolate chips

  • in a double boiler, so it gets nice and melted.

  • Take that off the heat, add white sugar,

  • brown sugar, give that a stir,

  • and add four eggs.

  • Add salt, cinnamon, flour.

  • Stir that up again, 'til it's nice and fudgy.

  • Then, add slivered almonds, and fold that in.

  • Pour it into a prepared pan.

  • Smooth it out, and pop in the oven.

  • As it's cooking, get some rice milk reducing,

  • pour it into a bowl, add rum, cinnamon,

  • give it a stir, and add a shit ton of

  • powdered sugar to it, so it turns into nice, glossy glaze.

  • Take your brownies out.

  • Pour that glaze over,

  • and smooth it out.

  • It'll harden in a few hours, and it's good to go.

  • - This looks like a brownie with lots of makeup.

  • Gorgeous.

  • Mmm.

  • Ooh, I like this.

  • Not your classic brownie, but you still get

  • all the elements of a brownie in it.

  • I'm very confused, because this tastes amazing.

  • It just doesn't taste like a brownie.

  • Oh, I really like whatever's on top.

  • It's like, reminds me of like, an apple crumble.

  • I can't decide, I'm sorry.

  • This is pretty good.

  • I wish she had some kind of crunch to it,

  • but as is, beautiful.

  • Thumbs up for this one.

  • [Jesse] Victoria Beckham starts by

  • combining sugar, cocoa powder, and melted butter

  • in a bowl, and stir in all together.

  • Add vanilla extract, four eggs,

  • and give that a good stir until it's nice and fudgy.

  • Add some baking powder, salt, flour,

  • give it another good stir, and the batter is it.

  • Posh keeps it nice and simple.

  • Bring your pan in.

  • Pour it in.

  • Spread it out, so it bakes nice and evenly,

  • and pop it in the oven.

  • Now, you're baking like Beckham.

  • This looks like the brownie I know.

  • If you asked me to make a brownie,

  • like, this is what I would make.

  • This is not very crunchy.

  • It's just like (splats).

  • Mm-mm.

  • I don't like this one.

  • It's definitely a little drier.

  • Whoever made this, are you on a diet?

  • What's up?

  • I'm missing my butter.

  • I'm missing my chunks of chocolate.

  • It's not chocolatey enough.

  • [Jesse] So, which celeb has the best brownies?

  • Let's find out.

  • This is what you guys have all been waiting for.

  • The best celebrity brownie is number one.

  • I never would have thought to put cherries

  • in a brownie, and it tasted really good,

  • 'cause there's like, chocolate and fruit

  • as a mixture, is always great.

  • Ah, Gordon Ramsay, of course!

  • Out of these four brownies, I think

  • my favorite is number three.

  • It had those elements of a classic brownie.

  • It was gooey, the flavors developed within it.

  • Ooh, I like that!

  • My favorite is definitely number two.

  • The combination between soft and crunch

  • was so amazing, and I'm always looking forward to that.

  • Totally see this being his creation.

  • [Director] Kevin, we need you to be the tie breaker.

  • Who, me?

  • I really don't like this one.

  • I like that one a lot.

  • I thought I liked it for a second.

  • Number two is definitely my favorite.

  • I'm a new fan of Guy Fieri, I guess.

  • (triumphant horn music)
