Decadent Flourless Brownies

Not only is there absolutely no flour of any kind in this brownie, but what substitutes for flour is pure cocoa powder.  I came up with this idea after looking at Rachel Ray’s recipe for one pot brownies.  I figured if Rachel’s brownies were quite good with 1/3 cup of flour in them, they’d be even better with more cocoa powder instead.

This level of chocolate is not for the faint of heart.  If you do not love chocolate, back away from your screen and try to forget you ever saw this.  You have been warned.  (If you’re really afraid of dark chocolate, I suggest you try these Incredible White Chocolate Brownies instead.)

For brownies, I like to use natural cocoa powder because of its robust and fruity flavor.  You’ll find Ghirardelli cocoa in my kitchen most of the time.

But if you prefer a Dutch process cocoa, Valrhona makes one of the best.  (I actually prefer Dutch cocoa over natural cocoa for making ice cream.)

Since these flourless brownies are so decadent and sophisticated, I thought they would go perfectly with this week’s Sunday Supper Movement theme, Red Carpet Party Recipes.  That’s the kind of food that goes well with flashbulbs, haute couture, and shiny little statuettes.  If these brownies were a celebrity, they’d be Angelina Jolie when she was hanging out with Billy Bob Thorton: intense, dark, and just a bit dangerous.

  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and prepare an 8 inch square pan by lining it with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Place the sugar and the melted butter in a large mixing bowl and whisk together until combined. Add the eggs one at a time, whisking after each addition. Stir in the salt and the vanilla extract, then set aside the whisk.
  3. Add the cocoa powder and stir in gently with a spoon or spatula, making sure to scrape down the bowl as you go so that the mixture is fully incorporated.
  4. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs but no wet batter attached. Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes on a rack, then use the liner to lift out the brownies and set them on the rack to finish cooling.
