Fudgy Homemade Brownies

In almost all cases when I try to make something from scratch that I once made from a mix, I have been very pleased with the results. Making it from scratch doesn't take that much more effort, and the improved taste is well worth any extra effort involved. There are a few things though that have involved trying many recipes before I found one that I liked. Brownies are one such case.

The boxed mixes really are so moist; almost to the point of being oily. Though I'm sure that isn't exactly healthy, a thick fudge type brownies was what I wanted. Most of the recipes I first tried were dry, and cake like. Then I found it a homemade brownie recipe that was moist and fudge like, and did not drip oil either.

The recipe was on the back of a box of Baker's unsweetened chocolate squares. Thanks Kraft!

Baker's One Bowl Brownies
4 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
3/4 C butter
2 C sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 C flour
1 C chopped nuts (optional)

Microwave unsweetened chocolate and butter in large bowl on high 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.

Stir in sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Add flour and nuts; stir until well blended. Spread into greased 13x9 inch pan.

Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Cool in pan.
If you do not have baking chocolate the substitute is 1 square of unsweetened chocolate = 3 TB cocoa + 1 TB oil. I like to sprinkle with powdered sugar. We made these last night, but unfortunately their are none left for a photo!
