The quest continued….until last night. I made these yummy brownies and they are almost exactly what I’ve been looking for in a brownie. Not pure fudge. Not cake. Chewy and chocolatey.
from Martha Stewart
2 sticks unsalted butter
8 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 cups white sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
a pinch of salt–maybe 1/8 to 1/4 tsp.
1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
Melt butter and chocolate in a double-boiler or on 50% power in the microwave–being careful not to burn the chocolate. Using an electric mixer, beat sugar and eggs until light and thick. Add the melted chocolate and butter. Fold in flour. Bake at 325 for about 25 minutes in a well-greased 9″by13″ baking dish. (I usually use a Pyrex glass pan.)
