Better Than a Boyfriend Brownies

Recipe from Melissa Stadler, Modern Homey (She adapted from: I Am Baker’s “Decadent Brownies!”)


1 cup butter, softened 
2 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar 
4 eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract 
1 cup flour (I used all-purpose)
1/2 cup cake flour
1 cup cocoa powder (premium quality)
1/2 teaspoon salt (I used Kosher)
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks, or chips 

*Option: add 8-ounce jar Dulce de Leche carefully best in the microwave. Swirl in 4-ounces in the batter. Bake. Top brownies with remaining 4-ounces Dulce de Leche. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 


In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar for 3-4 minutes or until light and fluffy. (Note: I used a stand mixer with the whip attachment until light and fluffy). Add eggs, one at a tome, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla. 

Stir in flour, cake flour coca and salt until mixed together. 

Fold in chocolate chunks, or chips. 

Pour into 9×13 pan and spread evenly. 

Bake 28-36 minutes.
