Recipe 38 - Adult Brownies

A fair while ago She took a trip to California. While she was there she undertook a very special task for me. A few days later I received a parcel which contained, among other things an Adult Brownie from Andronico's in San Francisco. I had heard mumblings about this legendary treat on the internet and required a sample to satisy my curiosity and cravings for deliciousness.

I was not disappointed. It was insanely tasty. When she reached the front of the line she told the server she was there to retrieve a brownie to post over the Atlantic. He told her the secret to the legendary tastiness in the small packet he handed over was "more butter than you could possibly believe would go in there". We can only hope that this recipe from Serious Eats can stand up to the memory I have.

  • 170 g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
