Cocoa Brownies

These brownies come from an Alton Brown recipe.  I made them for a play group potluck and everyone loved them.  They seemed to be a different texture than other brownies I’ve made, but it is certainly a very good type of different.  They were super chocolaty and amazingly delicious.

Non-stick spray
4 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
8 ounces melted butter2 teaspoons vanilla extract
11/4 cups cocoa, sifted
1/2 cup flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Line an 8X8 pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray.

Beat eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until light yellow, about 2 minutes.  Add sugar, brown sugar, butter and vanilla to the eggs and mix at low speed until combined.  Add cocoa powder, flour and salt.  Mix until thoroughly combined.  Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
