These fudgy yuzu brownies are the next best thing to classic box brownies! They are filled with the perfect amount of citrusy yuzu that complements the flavors of rich chocolate all while keeping the fudgy, moist texture that you love.
Preheat oven to 350°F and line the 9x9 pan with parchment paper and lightly greased with vegetable oil..
Combine the chocolate and the butter into a heatproof glass bowl and heat on 20 second intervals until the chocolate and the butter are melted. Make sure to stir in between intervals. Once the chocolate and the butter is melted, mix until emulsified. Add the yuzu extract and stir to combine. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the oil and salt, then whisk in the melted chocolate mixture until until combined. Gently fold in the flour until no more flour is visible.
Transfer the brownie batter into the 9x9 prepared pan and bake the brownies for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted 2 inches from the edge comes out mostly clean.
Remove the brownie from the oven and let it cool for about 10-15 minutes then remove the brownie from the pan. Cut the brownie into 9 pieces and enjoy while warm or let it cool completely.
