Course Baking, Brownies, Chocolate



  • 6 oz. stout beer Guinness works great!
  • 8 oz. good bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 stick of butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. AP flour
  • 3/4 cup. cocoa powder

For the ganache:

  • Click the link above for the recipe.


  • Grease a 9x9 inch baking dish, then line it with parchment paper. Grease the inside of the parchment paper as well. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small saucepan, bring the beer to a boil and reduce by about 2/3. Allow to cool while you work on the rest of the recipe.
  • Cream the butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer or with a hand mixer. Next, beat in eggs one at a time, and finally add the beer.
  • Stir the flour and cocoa in by hand, until just blended. Transfer to the baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a tester inserted halfway into the middle of the pan comes out clean. Allow to cool completely.
  • Make the ganache. See link above.
  • Smooth ganache over the top. Allow 15-20 minutes to set up completely
