a little different than Moosewoods. As good out of the ice cream
4 oz unsweetened chocolate (i usually use 5+, and either Valhrona,
Callebaut, or Scharffenberger chocolate.)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
*Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter and lightly flour a 13x9-inch
*Melt the chocolate and butter in the top of a double boiler over
simmering water. Let cool in the pan to room temperature. If youre
in a hurry, you can quickly cool it in the refrigerator, but be
sure it doesnt get solid again.
*Beat the eggs and salt in a mixing bowl until very fluffy. Gradually
beat in the sugar and vanilla. Fold in the cooled chocolate mixture.
Add the flour and fold just until blended. (It is important to
fold in the chocolate and flour gently to keep the batter as fluffy
*Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake
25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in the pan completely before cutting.
Makes 9 brownies, 4x3 inches each.
