  • Next add the ground coffee followed by the white & brown sugar, honey, vanilla extract & sea salt.
  • Sift the pastry flour before adding it to the other ingredients which helps prevent lumps ( Adding in 3 stages also helps to avoid lumps )

What makes a brownie an “Ultimate Fudge Brownie”?

There are lots of fudge brownie recipes online, but you have stumbled upon one of the truly special ones online, seriously. At the bottom of this post is a printable recipe card for the ultimate fudge brownies.

What makes this the best ultimate fudge brownie recipe online?

In this recipe, we do things a little bit different. We are using pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour. Pastry flour creates a softer textured brownie due to being lower in protein which makes cake flour a low gluten flour.  The recipe is a combination of a Le Cordon Bleu recipe I got while in culinary school, along with some great suggestions that came along the way. My mother is an avid baker and she suggested adding some brown sugar. Another thing is adding some raw honey which helps round out the flavor profile. Key variable = the type of chocolate. Over the years the brand Ghirardelli chocolate has become a symbol of quality and is our choice of chocolate for the Ultimate Fudge Brownie. Lastly, the magic ingredient you cannot taste, ground coffee.

The effect coffee has on chocolate is amazing. It really makes chocolate taste more like chocolate, plus you don’t taste the coffee.

Have you ever wondered what chocolate looks like before it’s processed? Take a look below…

How-To Make The Ultimate Fudge Brownies?

The cocoa bean, also called the cacao bean or simply cocoa (/ˈk.k/) or cacao (/kəˈk/), is the dried and fully fermented fatty seed of Theobroma cacao, from which cocoa solids and cocoa butter can be extracted. The “beans” are the basis of chocolate, as well as Mesoamerican foods, such as mole and tejate.
