5 ounces/125 grams of dark, semi sweet chocolate, roughly chopped
1 Cup/125 grams of plain flour
2/3 Cup/135 grams of white sugar
3 large eggs
1 Cup/225 grams of butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13 x 9 inch baking pan and set aside.
In a saucepan set over low heat, add the butter and chopped chocolate. Stir until melted and remove from heat to cool.
Sift flour together with the salt and set aside.
Meanwhile in a large mixing bowl add eggs, sugar and vanilla. Mix well until incorporated and smooth. Probably only a couple of minutes. Remember do not over mix! If you mix it too long, you will end up with more of a cake texture.
Next, add the chocolate mixture and stir until incorporated. Add flour all at once and gently stir in with a wooden spoon until just incorporated. Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake for around 15 - 20 minutes. Check a few minutes before the baking time is up and insert a toothpick. A few moist crumbs should come out on the stick. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack. Once cooled, cut into 2 inch squares and remove from pan.
These are just dusted with powered sugar. Can be served with Chocolate Sauce, ice cream or cream. Makes a nice afternoon treat or you can dress it up for a dessert.
Chocolate brownies are pretty much the holy grail of baking. Well, in my house they are. If you don't bake but would like to try something, make these. I have been making them for too many years to count and they are delicious every single time. Some things just never get old. Go on, make a batch today!
