Sour Cream Brownies

After deciding to make some sour cream brownies yesterday, I started pulling out ingredients only to realize we’d chucked the sour cream a few days earlier. Luckily, the internet assured me that you can replace a cup of sour cream with one cup of yogurt and one teaspoon of baking soda for baked goods, and based on the taste, it works just delightfully!

These are some tall brownies!

Ingredients:

  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8X8″ pan.

Combine the butter and bittersweet chocolate in a bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30 seconds.

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and whisk together.

Whisk together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla.

IMG_5581Whisk in the flour mixture until just combined.

IMG_5583Spread evenly into the greased pan.

IMG_5584Bake 38-42 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with just moist crumbs on it. Mine continued to seem undercooked, and I kept baking and baking, another 15 or 20 minutes. After the 42 minutes I put some foil over it to keep the top from burning while the inside baked. Maybe if you used a 9X9″ pan, so the batter was spread thinner, they’d be done at 38 minutes? Do 9X9″ pans even exist? Probably.

Took a while, but they were eventually baked and delicious! Thick but fluffy and very chocolatey.
