Brownies from Scratch

This recipe for The Original Fat Witch Brownies makes the BEST brownies EVER! The brownies are moist, rich, and super chocolatey. I make this recipe so much that I have it memorized. It is that good! The recipe is from Fat Witch Bakery located at Chelsea Market in New York City. It is consistently voted NYC’s best brownie. One bite and your taste buds will know why! Serve the brownies slightly warm with some vanilla ice cream! SO good! It is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

How to Make Fat Witch Brownie Recipe

These brownies are super easy to make with only a few simple natural ingredients. Grease and flour a 9×9-inch pan. Melt the butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl, beat together sugar, eggs and vanilla with a handheld mixer. Add the cooled chocolate to the butter mixture and mix until well blended. Sift flour and salt directly into the chocolate mixture. Gently mix the batter until well blended and no trace of the dry ingredients remain. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the brownies to cool and cut squares.

  • I suggest lining your baking pan with foil or parchment paper. This will make it easier to get the brownies out of the pan.
  • Store the brownies in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature.
  • You can use any chocolate chips that you have on hand. I prefer Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips. I’ve also made this recipe with semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Comments

  1. I tried the Fat Witch brownies when I was in NYC (tried the oatmeal walnut chocolate brownie a.k.a. the breakfast witch, and also the blondie) and I thought they were great, but not the best in the country (in my humble opinion). Too cake-like for my tastes; I'm afraid I'm into a much fudgier consistency! But they're still fantastic if you're in the mood for something not so dense, so it's good to have this recipe. 🙂

  2. These brownies look great! And have really basic ingredients too. I'm also a fan of the fat witch cookbook. I still have to get one though..

  3. Thanks! I tested the recipes in my home kitchen and lugged all ingredients from grocery store to make certain everything was for the home baker, not commercial. I'm thrilled you like the book. Toss some chocolate chips in the peanut butter bars. Patricia

  4. Thanks for this review! Will keep a look out for their book. This "not overly sweet brownie" is certainly a plus in my books! I usually reduce the sugar for almost all recipes!

  5. Hm, I have that book sitting in my cart on TheGoodCook.com but haven't clicked the purchase button…wasn't sure. I think I'll wait for you to post another recipe before I decide.

    The brownies look great.
