You will never go back to box brownies after you make these, and somehow even if you double the recipe they will vanish far too quickly.
5 oz unsweetened bakers chocolate
1/2cup cold butter, diced
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tbs vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1 cup chopped nuts - optional
pinch of salt
Melt chocolate and butter together in a double boiler... almost all the way. Make sure there are just a few little pieces of chocolate left un-melted.
Mix eggs, sugar, vanilla together. Add chocolate mixture then flour and nuts.
Line 9 inch round cake pan or 8 x 8 dish with wax paper. Bake these at 350 for 30 minutes, but the time is always slightly different. Must do fork test, and fork must have a little bit of wet batter left on it so they are cake like when they cool.
*The wax paper is a must, they will not turn out without it.
*Oddly enough these brownies are 100x better when they are cool rather than warm out of the oven.
Be sure to call me so I can come over and eat them with you, and thank my daddy-o for this recipe.
