New Favorite Gluten-Free Flour Brownies

Gluten-free flour plus a mixture of whipped eggs and sugar help keep the texture both light and fudgy at the same time. Makes sure to use a really good cocoa powder. I haven't tested with natural yet. So far I've only made these with Rodelle brand Dutch. For the chips I've tested with Guittard semisweet and Nestle's new "dark" chips.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces unsalted butter, cut into chunks (114 grams)
  • 1 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped (42 grams)
  • 4 ½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (25 grams) -- Best to weigh, since cocoa varies. Dutch usually weighs a little more.
  • 3 tablespoons dark chocolate chips (or semisweet Guittard) (28 grams)
  • 1 cup ultra-fine or granulated sugar (7 oz/200 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 60 grams King Arthur gluten-free flour (see note about brands) (1/3 cup or 1/3 cup plus 2 T based on brand)
  • Another 3 tablespoons or so dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line the inside of an 8 inch square metal pan with nonstick foil.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan set over medium heat. When it is about halfway melted, add the chocolate and reduce heat to low. Stir until chocolate melts, then stir in the cocoa powder and 1 oz of chocolate chips. Stir in only 1/2 cup of the sugar, then remove from heat.
  • Put the eggs in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat with the whisk attachment for about a minute. With mixer going, add remaining 1/2 cup sugar and continue beating for about 5 minutes or until mixture is pale and thick and falls off the whisk attachment in ribbons. Beat in the salt and vanilla.
  • Fold about 1/3 cup of the egg mixture into the warm chocolate mixture, then fold the chocolate mixture back into the bowl with the egg mixture. Stir in the gluten free flour.
  • Spread batter in pan and sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake for 25-27 minutes or until top appears set. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Lift from pan and cut into squares.

Notes

I've also made these with Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten Free Blend. That flour is a little fluffier and requires about 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons to make the requisite 60 grams (2.1 oz by weight).  Since posting this I've also tested with King Arthur's Measure for Measure, which also requires more than 1/3 cup to hit 60 grams.  For best results, weigh the flour.
