1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter and flour an 8x8x2 inch square baking pan. Set aside. Melt the butter and chocolate in a heavy medium saucepan over very low heat, whisking until smooth. Remove from heat and add the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk until well blended. Whisk in the flour and salt just until blended. Stir in the walnuts.
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out sticky, with just a few crumbs clinging to it, but is not wet. Do Not Overbake. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
Chill if you have the time. Cut into squares. If chilled, let stand at room temperature before serving. Yield: 12 brownies.Print This Post
