DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • The original recipe says to grease a 12 X 18 inch jelly roll pan, but I use a 9 x13 inch cake pan for intense denseness, and don't grease it, just line it with parchment paper).
  • Melt the chocolate with the butter, either on the stovetop or in the microwave. Stir until smooth. Let cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Mix in the sugar and the eggs and the vanilla extract.
  • Add in the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle the chips (nuts, whatever) evenly over the top of the batter.
  • The original recipe says to bake for 25-28 minutes until a cake tester comes out with some moist crumbs attached to it. This never works for me. I usually have to let it go for about 40-45 minutes. This is probably because my pan is more condensed than the jelly roll pan.
  • Do not overbake!
  • I usually let the brownies cool in the pan, the keep them in the fridge overnight. The I just lift them out of the pan by the parchment paper, place the whole thing on a cutting board and then it's the perfect state for cutting into perfect brownie squares.
  • Some of us like the edges the best, others prefer the center.
