Fudgy Brownies

Fudgy Brownies
From: taxi78cab

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
3 oz (3 squares) Baker’s unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350.

Melt butter and chocolate together. (Recommendation: Put them both into a microwave safe bowl or cup. I like a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup that I then use as the mixing bowl when I add the rest of the ingredients. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each session. After the first minute, go to 15 seconds at a time. Don’t burn the chocolate! This can also be done in a 2 qt saucepan on the stovetop on low and then use the pan as the mixing bowl. No point in dirtying two bowls!)

Stir in sugar.

Beat eggs in a separate bowl or cup until slightly frothy. Add to chocolate mixture and stir well.

Stir in vanilla.

Add in flour and mix until smooth.

Pour into a greased 8x8 pan.

Bake for ~20 minutes. The edges will pull away from the pan a bit, but don’t let them go until they get dry. The center will still be soft but a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean.

Let stand for at least 15 minutes to finish setting up. (You can remove them before this if you can’t stand the wait, but they’ll be really gooey and tend to fall apart before they’ve had a chance to cool a bit.)
