Modern Baker: Sour Cream Brownies

Brownies! Seriously, need I say more?!
The Modern Bakers are now baking cookies, bars & biscotti from The Modern Baker Cookbook.

These brownies are made with bittersweet chocolate chunks that are submerged in warmed butter and then mixed with dark brown sugar, eggs, sour cream, salt, vanilla, flour, and walnut pieces.

N.M. says that the sour cream helps cut down on the sweetness. He's right. These brownies are perfectly chocolatey and rich without sending you over the edge. In fact, what they'll do is send you back to the dessert table for another one! They are delicious!

They're more of a cake-like than fudge-like brownie. I happen to love both kinds, but often cake-like brownies can feel dry out. These were nicely moist. The walnuts were a great addition. Bake these with confidence that you'll have a happy crowd!


  1. Yum! Your picture is making me SO hungry.

  2. I actually have these made and photographed but just haven't gotten them posted...maybe Monday. Mine look like yours so I must have done them right, you know me and chocolate, it's a crap shoot every single time...that said, the guys loved these! Your photo is wonderful.
