DIRECTIONS

  • Position the rack in the lower third of the oven; preheat oven to 350°; butter and flour a 13x9 inch baking pan; set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  • Place the chocolate in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water; stir constantly until half of the chocolate is melted.
  • Remove the top of the double boiler; then continue stirring, away from the heat, until the chocolate is completely melted; let cool for 5 minutes.
  • In a big bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar with a wooden spoon or electric mixer on medium speed; beat until smooth and light, about 9 minutes by hand or 5 minutes with a mixer.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time, allowing the first to be thoroughly incorporated before adding the second.
  • Beat for 1 minute, then add the bourbon and melted chocolate, beating until the batter is smooth and pale.
  • With a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, stir in the flour mixture just until incorporated; do not beat.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it gently to the corners.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until a pick comes out clean; set pan on a wire rack to cool for at least 30 minutes.
  • Cut into 24 pieces while they are still in the pan.
  • Carefully remove them with an offset spatula.
  • Serve immediately or let cool completely before covering with plastic wrap for storage at room temperature.
  • **You may substitute any of the following liqueurs for the bourbon: Amaretto, brandy, cognac, Calvados, Frangelico, gold rum, Kahlua, or spiced rum.
