I thought about making these brownies thick like cocoa brownies, but I think that would be a bit much. White chocolate is super rich, especially quality white chocolate. If you want, you can take a crack at it, but know that your brownies will be super dense and gooey. Smaller and thinner versus the traditional thick and sometimes mammoth chocolate brownie size might be key.
I’ve gone with a classic combo of tart raspberry coulis (also known as sauce. I just like the word coulis! Sounds cute and sophisticated), but this can be the canvas for so many other creations. White chocolate brownies are extremely versatile. I like mine with this spicy ice cream half-melted on top.
White Chocolate Brownies
Chewy, moderately gooey, white chocolate brownies.
- 1 stick unsalted butter chopped into pieces
- 10 oz white chocolate bar, not chips
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp light corn syrup
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
Go on ahead and heat that oven. 325 degrees Farenheit.
Butter or spray an 8x8 inch square pan. Feel free to use round. I just would not suggest a larger pan, or else your brownies could be a bit thin. Double the recipe if you decide to use a 9" pan.
Using either the bain marie method, or the microwave on 50% power - Melt the butter, white chocolate, and sugar.
Allow the mixture to cool for 7-8 minutes. Then, add the 4 eggs, and stir, preferably with a whisk or fork.
Add the salt, corn syrup, and vanilla. Stir just until combined.
Add the flour, and stir just until combined. Avoid too much stirring.
This would be a good time to add your add-ins. Macadamia nuts would be a really good choice.
Pour in the prepared pan, and bake in the oven without opening the oven door for 30 minutes. The brownies won't be done at this point, but you're allowed to peek! Begin checking every 10 minutes, or so for doneness. Brownies should be done at the 50-55 minute mark. The top will be crackly and light brown, and a toothpick inserted will come out with sticky crumbs.
Doneness can be a matter of opinion. I like a soft unctuous center for these brownies which calls for about 54 minutes of baking time.
Thank you for reading!
