Why is this the best brownies ever recipe? It’s easy to make. The mixture is almost impossible to screw up (melt the meltables, put everything in a bowl & mix well), and you have easily a ten minute window when you can pull them out of the oven and they’re still good – it’s just up to you whether you want extra crunchy edges or more of the gooey centre.
– Chef Jack Greenall
I’ve been cooking these brownies since I was 13, and I can’t remember what cookbook they came from originally because I’ve had this recipe memorised since the second time I made it. And other than minor variations, it really hasn’t changed in a decade and a half.
This recipe is courtesy of Jack Greenall, a oxford-based freelance research chef and founder of Smoke and Thyme – a blog and a supper club. Jack has used his supper club to develop and perfect new dishes to add to his now substantial repertoire.
