Baker's One Bowl Brownies

My mother in law can make a mean brownie. I can't remember if Stephen Grande and I were married or not when I asked her for the recipe, but I remember thinking they were so good that I was tapping into some sacred family recipe that dated back to Uncle Sumter. I was astounded and surprised to learn that the recipe she uses is simply found on the inside of the Baker's unsweetened chocolate squares box. To die for, I tell ya. These delicacies put boxed brownies to serious shame.

*The secret is to NOT OVERCOOK. I usually set my timer for 25 minutes and then watch them like a hawk. Somewhere between 25 and 30 minutes is perfection.


4 sq. Baker's unsweetened chocolate
3/4 c. (1 1/2 sticks) butter
2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1 c. chopped nuts, optional

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.2. Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwave bowl at high 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.
3. Stir sugar into chocolate. Mix in eggs and vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour and nuts. Spread in greased 13 x 9 inch pan.
4. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Cool in pan; cut into squares. Makes 24 fudgy brownies.
Note: When using glass baking dish, bake at 325 degrees. For cake-like brownies, stir in 1/2 cup milk with eggs; use 1 1/2 cups flour.


Best served warm with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream.
