Who doesn't love brownies? Okay, so I am sure that there are people out there who don't like them. But me? I don't think I could ever turn down a brownie. In my opinion, brownies are like chocolate chip cookies. There are hundreds of variations and, for the most part, they are all good. Everyone has a favorite recipe, including me, but I don't have any problem trying new recipes!
The "Julia" in the title of these brownies is none other than Julia Child herself. Rick Katz was the head of the prep kitchen for Julia's show and would make these brownies for her. They are prepared differently than other brownies (eggs and sugar are whipped then folded into the batter), which is probably something I should have read.
While making these brownies, I went straight into baker mode and broke a cardinal rule. You should probably read the recipe before making something. Not me. Hahaha. I just went ahead and started preparing these brownies as normal brownies are prepared.
The good news? They turned out great. Nice, chocolately, fudgy brownies. The bad news? I don't know if my brownies differ in taste/texture from what Rick Katz intended. I guess I'll find out as I visit other TWD blogs and see what their brownies look like!
Thank you to Tanya of ChocolateChic for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog.
