Are these the ultimate - and easiest - brownies to make?

Mark Bittman's BrowniesBrownies may not be haute cuisine, but they have a lot going for them. They're a comforting bite in times of stress, induce chocolaty feel-good moments, fill the house with warm aromas, often bring back simple, childhood memories - yes, brownies are among the ultimate comfort foods. But while we may often impulsively want, even need, brownies, there's something about pulling down a prepared box of mix that detracts from the experience.

So we were delighted when Serious Eats published Mark Bittman's Brownies from his new book, How to Cook Everything: The Basics. It couldn't be a simpler recipe, requires no ingredients that you either don't usually have or can't easily keep on hand, and produces such pleasure with minimal effort. As Serious Eats wrote, "Easy, quick, and the most delicious, there's not a thing wrong with this recipe."

    I make <a href="">these ones</a>. No chocolate, only cocoa, and they are superb. Brownies from a mix? Nope. not going to happen.
