Honestly, these come under the category of embarrassingly easy to make. So easy in fact that when he was five, my grandson made these. He kept whisking and whisking and as we neared the end, he looked up and offered, “These are really hard,
grandma.” But whisk away he did and was very proud of the baked brownies. You can add nuts or chips – whatever you want to enhance them, but they are mighty good just
by themselves. Or, maybe with a scoop of ice cream and fudge sauce.
1/2 cup butter
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8x8 inch pan.
Melt butter and chocolate in a microwave or over hot water. Whisk in sugar, vanilla and salt. Add eggs and whisk in. Add flour and stir to mix completely. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until set and a few crumbs cling to a tester.
