Yield: 32 Servings
|Serious chocolate brownies|
|1||Tbsp vanilla extract|
This is an adaptation of the "Scrumptious Brownies" recipe found on a box of Baker's unsweetened chocolate. I've reduced the amounts of sugar and flour from the original, which I find makes for a very fudgey brownie.
INGREDIENTS (32 brownies)
8 oz unsweetened chocolate (8 squares) ½ lb butter
2½ cups sugar
1 ½ cups flour 2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts (optional) PROCEDURE Grease a 13x9 inch pan and pre-heat oven to 375 deg. F.
Melt the chocolate and the butter in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Whisk until smooth. Set aside to cool while beating eggs.
Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla at high speed for a full 10 minutes.
Blend in the chocolate-and-butter mixture at low speed.
Add flour, beating just to blend. Stir in walnuts, if desired. Bake 30 to 35 minutes. Do not overbake. The brownies are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out slightly dirty. Cool in pan, then cut into squares.
RATING: Difficulty: easy to moderate. Time: 30 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooking and cooling. Precision: measure the ingredients.
