Cakey brownies

Is there a good recipe for cakey brownies. My husband is the weird type that only likes cakey brownies, and not the fudgey kind that the rest of the Universe loves. I searched the net and I can't find any. *sigh*

  1. Add another egg to your regular recipe and they'll be cakier.

      Good call. I just noticed that the recipe I posted below is the same as Baker's one bowl brownies, with one extra egg, and it makes all the difference.

    2. Try this article:

      If that doesn't do it, I have an old recipe for a pb chocolate brownie that's very cakey. You can just leave out the pb swirl part. I can look for it if you want.

        Thank you, I'd love the recipe.

          Okay, the brownie part:

          3/4 c butter
          4 oz unsweetened chocolate
          2 c sugar
          4 eggs
          1 c flour
          1 tsp vanilla
          1/2 tsp salt

          Melt chocolate/butter and let cool. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt, beat. Stir in flour. Bake in greased 13x9 pan (I use a sling) at 350 for 45 mins (this is the time w/ pb, if doing w/out start looking at 35 mins).

          Pb part:

          1/2 c pb
          3 tbsp butter, softened
          3/4 c sugar
          3/4 flour
          1 tsp baking powder
          1 tsp vanilla
          1/2 tsp salt
          2 large eggs
          3/4 c. coarsely chopped salted pb

          Beat pb, butter, sugar. Beat in eggs, vanilla, salt. Stir in flour and then pb. Dollop on top of brownies, if wanted.

      2. I like not being like "the rest of the universe"! Cake brownies for me with fresh hulled walnuts and chocolate buttercream frosting. The cake brownie recipe from chowser's link above about nails it.

          I can't find a cakey recipe on Chowser's link. When I click on the photo for cakey brownies, I get a broken link.

            Thank for your recipes. I also just found this one from Laura Vitale, she just posted it. Some people complained they didn't rise enough though when they made them (she only uses 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder).
