  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).
  • Prepare a 8x8 baking pan by greasing it and covering it with parchment paper. 
  • Brown the butter. Heat butter over medium heat until it melts. Then lower the heat to low and cook until brown bits appear. 
  • Put the white chocolate into a bowl. Pour the browned butter over the top. Stir until all the chocolate melts. Set aside.
  • Combine sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, ube extract, ube halaya jam, and salt in a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whisk until it becomes a fluffy, light purple color (~5-10 minutes).
  • Add the white chocolate mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix until incorporated.
  • Add the all purpose flour and gently fold it into the mixture.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Take out the brownies and tap on the counter to release air bubbles. Optional: Sprinkle flaky salt on top of the brownies.
  • Put them back in the oven and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
  • Let the brownies cool for 20 minutes in the pan before cutting into them.



  1. This brownie recipe makes a fudgier brownie. If you want a brownie that is more cakey/not as gooey in the middle, add an extra 1/4 cup of flour to the batter.
  2. Alternatively, you can reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup. That would make the brownie cakey and reduce the sweetness of the brownie.
