The Best Brownie Recipe Ever

Chef Todd Jones

This is the best brownie recipe I’ve ever come across, really! This makes a “foodservice-sized” portion, which means there should be plenty. But trust me, they will go quickly!


14 oz. (440 g) walnuts
1 pound 8 ounces sweet dark chocolate
1 pound 12 ounces granulated sugar
1 pound unsalted butter
8 whole eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pound bread flour
½ teaspoon baking powder


Chop walnuts to raisin size (set aside). Cut the chocolate into chunks, and over a double boiler, melt it with the butter until it is smooth. Remember chocolate should never rise above your body temperature, so use your lip with a dollop to test it while you’re melting it. If not, the chocolate oils will break down during baking.

Line the bottom of a 12×16 pan with baking paper. Whip the sugar, eggs, and vanilla at high speed until light and fluffy, and then fold in the cooled chocolate mixture. Sift the flour with the baking powder and stir into the chocolate. Add the walnuts. This is a folding process – be sure not to do this with the mixer. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan, sprinkle the remaining walnuts on top. Bake at 400F for about 30 minutes or until the brownies have completely set but are still slightly soft. Cooooool! Enjoy. Cut into small piece so they hold together – they are rich!
