An underdone brownie.  Words cannot describe.

If you secretly take your brownies out a leeetle bit early every time just so that oops you need a spoon to eat the center piece, then we are soul mates.

And as your soul mate, I share with you today… Brownie Pudding.

Brownie Pudding, when baked properly, has a brownie top with gooey bottom.  That’s right, we can bring our dark-closet secret of intentionally undercooking brownies out into the glorious, mainstream light with a brownie that is supposed to be so gooey you can’t even cut it.  It’s supposed to be eaten with a spoon.  It’s supposed to be baking in your oven right now.

Brownie Pudding.  The sixth love language?

Brownie Pudding
From Ina Garten
  • 2 sticks (1 c) unsalted butter, plus extra for buttering the dish
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 c sugar
  • ¾ c cocoa powder
  • ½ c flour
  • Seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 T framboise liquor (optional... and SO delicious)
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly butter a 2-quart oval baking dish.** Melt the butter and set aside to cool.
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar on medium-high speed in a large bowl for 5-10 minutes, until very thick and light yellow. Meanwhile, combine the flour and cocoa in another bowl and set aside.
  3. When the egg and sugar mixture is ready, lower the mixer speed to low and add the vanilla seeds, framboise (if using), and the cocoa-flour mixture. Mix only until combined. With the mixer still on low, slowly pour in the cooled butter and mix again just until combined.
  4. Pour the brownie mixture into the prepared dish and place it in a larger baking pan. Add enough hot tap water to the pan to come halfway up the side of the dish and bake for exactly one hour. A cake tested inserted 2 inches from the side will come out ¾ clean. The center will appear very under-baked (yay!).
**I use a 1.5-qt oval baking dish and increase the baking time by 10-15 minutes.

Right now I’m imagining a big scoop of vanilla ice cream melting all over the center of this brownie pudding fresh from the oven, and I’m having trouble focusing on the healthy dinner I have planned for 6pm.

Yes indeed, an undercooked brownie is the stuff that heavenly chocolatey dreams are made of. The. Absolute. Best. Enough. said.
