Brownies……..almost the BEST

Awhile back, I posted a brownie recipe that was pretty darned good. As I said back then, I have experimented with so many brownie recipes over the years. Not one has come close to my lost recipe of long ago. I absolutely LOVE brownies….a real favorite treat of mine. I was experimenting again and came up with this one. I like it a bit better than the Ooey Gooey Brownie I posted, but my search still continues. This one is thick, chewy, good fudgy factor, but not overly mushy fudgy. I don’t like those overly gushy brownies. Going to try this one again, but make some adjustments…..stay tuned.

8 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp  baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/4 cup walnuts or almonds

Heat oven to 350 deg. Fit a piece of parchment paper or foil into an 8×8 square baking dish so that on 2 sides of the dish, the paper or foil stick out (for easy lifting of brownies out of pan). Spray the foil/paper with cooking spray. Melt the chopped chocolate and butter in the microwave. Be careful not to scorch the chocolate. Allow the mixture to come to room temp. In a large mixing bowl, mix the eggs and sugar to a thick, pale yellow…..at least 2 minutes. Add the chocolate/butter and mix thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients. Fold in the nuts. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 40 minutes.

Note: I rotate the baking dish, half way through (20 minutes). Check for doneness with tooth pick. It should have a few crumbs on the toothpick. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Grab the paper and lift carefully out of the pan. Cut. Bite. Say YUM.
