Jane Davis's Brownies

Recipe by SharleneW
READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 16 squares




  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Lightly grease bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking pan.
  • Line with parchment paper, letting ends of paper extend above pan on 2 sides; lightly grease paper.
  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt (I do it on a small piece of waxed paper so I have less dishes to wash).
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat.
  • Remove from heat and add unsweetened chocolate; stir until chocolate melts completely.
  • Stir sugar, vanilla and eggs into chocolate mixture (put it directly into the pan you used to melt chocolate).
  • Add flour mixture and chocolate chips and stir until just blended.
  • Spread evenly in prepared pan.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until top is firm when lightly touched.
  • Be sure not to overbake.
  • Cool in pan on wire rack.
  • When cool, lift out, holding paper ends, from pan to cutting board.
  • The parchment paper should peel easily off before cutting.
