Hi

The recipe my boss wants me to use for chocolate brownies is really boring and prone to not rise at all; does anyone else have any good alternatives? Thanks for suggestions,
Ben.

For those (including myself) who prefer brownies made w/ melted chocolate, rather than cocoa powder:

6 oz. (170 g.) Swiss dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
6 oz. (170 g.) bitter chocolate, coarsely chopped
6 oz. (170 g.) butter, softened
¾ cup (150 g) white granulated sugar
¾ cup (110 g) packed, dark brown sugar
3 large eggs
75 ml Grand Marnier
5 ml pure vanilla extract
zest of small orange
(approx.) 140 g. cake flour, sieved
good pinch of salt
about 140 g. coarsely broken nuts

Melt chocolates; cool until tepid. Cream butter & sugars. Beat in eggs, individually. Add next three ingredients. Mixture will look slightly curdled. Beat in cooled chocolate. Stir in flour & salt; using spatula, stir in the nuts.

Baked in foil-lined pan at 350° F. for 25-30 minutes. Do not overbake!

Cool brownies in pan on wire grid. Lift out of pan by ends of foil; invert onto platter; carefully peel off the foil; re-invert and cut into serving pieces.
