Serious chocolate brownies

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.


(32 brownies)


  1. Grease a 13 x 9 inch pan and pre-heat oven to
  2. 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.
  3. Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla at high speed for a full 10 minutes.
  4. Blend in the chocolate-and-butter mixture at low speed.
  5. Add flour, beating just to blend. Stir in walnuts, if desired.
  6. Bake 30 to 35 minutes. Do not overbake. The brownies are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out slightly dirty.
  7. Cool in pan, then cut into squares.


Difficulty: easy to moderate.
Time: 30 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooking and cooling.
Precision: measure the ingredients.
