Chocolate Fudge Brownies

on December 24, 2012

~Chocolate Fudge Brownies~

1 cup flour

2/3 cup unsalted butter

30z or 1/2 cup  semi-sweet chocolate

1 tbsp cocoa powder

3/4 cup soft light brown sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

One pinch of salt

1 tsp vanilla

And 2 eggs

And you can add 2/3 cup chopped nuts if you like, but since a lot of us are allergic to them, I don’t add them.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Grease and line the base of the brownie pan with nonstick parchment paper.
  2. Break the chocolate into a bowl and add the better. Melt the butter and chocolate over a saucepan of barely simmering water, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the bowl from the heat and allow the chocolate to cool slightly. Sift the flour cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt into a a separate bowl.
  4. In a third bowl, beat the eggs and then add the sugar and vanilla extract. (For better looks melt the sugar in a saucepan before mixing.) Stir the ingredients together until they are just combined.
  5. Fold the melted chocolate into the beaten egg mixture. Then fold in the flour mixture. (And nuts if you are going to add them.) There should be no visible flour.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the pan, smooth the tip with a palette knife. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan before cutting them into squares.
