100-Hour Fudgy Brownies

From Alvin Zhou.

I rarely make brownies, but when I do, I like to spend lots of time on them! Espresso infused brown butter, two kinds of chocolate, fluffy whipped sugar, and cold brew make them intensely rich and extremely fudgy. Even though the entire process takes 100 hours, I think it’s worth it!

2 sticks unsalted butter (225g)
1 tbsp espresso powder (6g)
Coffee ice cube (30g)

4 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla paste (15g)
2 1/4 cups white sugar (450g)

1/2 cup dutch-processed cocoa powder (45g)
1 tbsp espresso powder (6g)
1 tbsp kosher salt (9g)

8 oz melted 75% cacao chocolate (225g)
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (215g)

3.5 oz chopped milk chocolate (100g)
3.5 oz chopped 75% cacao chocolate (100g)
6 oz chopped 75% cacao chocolate, for topping (170g)

Baked in a 9×13 pan.

Note from me:
The 100 hours actually makes quite a huge difference in the end. Out of curiosity, I’ve actually baked off a batch immediately to compare to the 100-hour batch, and it’s not nearly as delicious to me. It’s kinda like watching a movie in 480p while your friends watch it in 4K – still good but could probably be a lot better.

Thank you for watching!
