VIDEO: Sending out an S.O.S. for the brownies at Boudin Bakery at South Coast Plaza

September 2, 2009 |  6:09 pm


There is a possibility that the L.A. Times will not publish tomorrow. That's because everyone in the building has been talking about these brownies, instead of working at putting out the paper. Well, maybe I am exaggerating just a bit. But I can't remember the last time a recipe caused such a stir. And it's not just inside the building -- the recipe has been topping the most e-mailed list all day, too. I'm sure a lot of that had to do with the show-stopping photo taken by Times Staff Photographer Kirk McKoy -- you can see it below in all its fudge-y, chocolate-y glory. 

The recipe came to our attention when Mindy Morse of Los Angeles wrote to Times Test Kitchen test manager Noelle Carter, and submitted a request for our Culinary S.O.S. column: "Could you possibly get the recipe for the brownies at Boudin Bakery at South Coast Plaza?" Morse wrote, adding: "They are the most delicious brownies I have ever tasted!" 

Noelle got the recipe, and adapted it for the home chef. You can also watch video, above, of Noelle making the brownies in the Test Kitchen during a segment for our sister TV station, KTLA. Here's the recipe, Mindy! Enjoy! 

And check out other recipe requests we've been able to answer, here.
