I was on a mission to create the most decadent and fudgey and chocolately and blueberrily brownie ever.
The center had to have a rich fudge-like texture but the top had to have a delicate and crisp flakey crust. That in itself is the definition of a perfect brownie (in my humble opinion), but I had to take it one step further. With all the richness of the multiple levels of chocolate, I wanted to add in a slightly natural raw bitterness most perfectly accomplished with a plump, juicy blueberry.
I heart blueberries.
With all my heart.
And I hope you heart them too.
I love them so much I am not even offering up alternatives to blueberry in this recipe. Please only use blueberries. Also, I am going for a record on how many times I can say blueberries in one blog post.
This recipe is an adaptation of my Original Blueberry Brownie recipe. That recipe has a bit more of a cake-like texture and I felt like going for more of a fudge-like consistency, which is why I omitted the baking powder. If you prefer a cake-like texture, be sure to use that original recipe.
If you do want to add baking powder, I would add about 3/4 tsp.
These brownies are AH-mazing. The texture is everything I dreamed it would be and the flavor is outstanding. When those blueberries pop and burst within the rich chocolate brownie bite, it’s nothing short of perfection.
