Smitten Kitchen's favorite brownies

Mine too...

Yes these are my current favorite brownies. Well, anything brownies is my favorite but this is my go-to brownie recipe as of now. Believe me, I have already baked this twice in a month. The first batch was for my son's birthday party and then again for a potluck and then again after my parents arrived and now for his monthly birthday. Every time I make these brownies it has been a big hit right from kids to the adults. Thats reason enough for this recipe to become an all-time favorite right. The first time I made this I didn't add in any nuts and I felt that the brownies missed something, missed that much needed crunch and so I have been adding nuts of choice like almonds and walnuts since then.


Prep time: 15 mins; Cooking time: 25 mins; Serves: 16 squares

~*What U Need*~
Unsweetened chocolate - 3 ounces/85 grams, roughly chopped
Unsalted butter - 1/2 cup
Granulated sugar - 1 1/3 cup (I used 1 cup only)
Large eggs - 2
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Salt - a pinch
All purpose flour - 2/3 cup
Chopped nuts - 1/4 cup(optional), I used almonds

How I made it:
Prheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8-inch square baking pan with parchment, overhanging on two sides. Butter the parchment or spray it with a nonstick cooking spray. In a double boiler, melt chocolate and butter together. Stir until smooth and fully melted. Whisk in sugar, then eggs.

Add the vanilla extract and mix well. Stir in flour and fold in the nuts. Scrape batter into prepared pan, spread until even. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out batter-free with moist crumbs. Let cool completely and cut into desired size.

Yummy brownies ready!!!

So thats it Folks...
