Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Dessert
Serves: 6 - 8
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 5 ounces bittersweet, or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tablespoons unsweetened American-style cocoa powder (like Hershey's)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Aluminum foil (for baking)
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan (non-stick baking spray works well)
  3. Line the pan with aluminum foil, letting the foil overhang two opposite sides of the pan by about 2 inches.
  4. Grease the foil, or coat with non-stick baking spray.
  5. In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave the butter and chocolate for about 1 minute. Stir well.
  6. Continue to microwave at 30 second intervals, until the chocolate is about 80% melted. The residual heat will finish melting the chocolate.
  7. In a small bowl, thoroughly stir together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt: set aside.
  8. Stir the sugar and brown sugar into the chocolate-butter mixture until well combined.
  9. Add the eggs and vanilla and stir until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
  10. Stir in the flour mixture until just evenly incorporated.
  11. Turn out the batter into the baking pan lined with the foil, spreading to the edges.
  12. Bake in the middle of the oven for 30 - 33 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center. It's okay if it's still moist at the bottom...this is good.
  13. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
  14. Using the overhanging foil as handles, transfer the brownies to a cutting board.
  15. Carefully peel off foil.
  16. Cut the brownies into 12 bars.
  17. Enjoy!
