Browned Butter Red Velvet Brownies

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 cups salted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp red velvet food coloring*
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk (or 3 tbsp milk + 1 tbsp vinegar)
  • 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • optional: powdered sugar for dusting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a 9x13 baking dish by spraying with non-stick cooking spray and lining with parchment paper (optional, but I like to do it so I can lift the brownies right out of the dish).
Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Stir constantly until butter has reached a light brown color and little "bits" have formed. It can be difficult to see the color of the butter as it foams a bit, so I go by smell-- it will be very fragrant, smelling almost like caramel.
Pour the butter into the bowl of a stand mixer (no need to cool). Add the sugar and cocoa powder and beat until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing in between each addition until almost creamy.
Add the salt, buttermilk, red food coloring, and vanilla.
Add the flour mix well. Batter will be thick.
Use a sturdy rubber spatula to spread batter in the 9x13 pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let cool, then cut into 2" squares to serve.
