Good ol' Nancy---back when First Ladies were ladies, indeed! This is my all-time favorite brownie recipe. Republicans are often criticized for wanting the "rich to get richer," and WOW, it doesn't get any richer than these moist, densely-chocolate treats!
- 3 one-ounce semi-sweet chocolate baking squares
- 3 one-ounce unsweetened chocolate squares
- 1 1⁄2 cups unsalted butter
- 6 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 2⁄3 cup flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups chopped pecans
- Melt chocolate and butter in top of double boiler; cool. Beat eggs and sugar until light. Add to chocolate mixture. Add dry ingredients after blending, stir in vanilla and nuts. Bake in buttered/floured 9" x 13" pan 35 minutes at 350. Cool completely before cutting into squares. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.
Everything I like is in this recipe: sugar, nuts and chocolate. I made it this morning to have with tea tomorrow with a friend, but couldn't resist and tried one. Boy, are you right: it is indeed (Republican) rich--big time! ;-) Thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe.
