Magic Brownies Friday, July 11, 2008
From a friend at Shannondale Health Center
1 1/2 sticks butter (no substitutes)
6 1/2 oz unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped walnuts
Spray a 9x13" baking pan with baking spray. In a heavy saucepan on low heat or in the microwave melt butter and chocolate together until chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside to cool. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on high speed for 5 minutes or until lemon colored and fluffy, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Add cooled chocolate mixture and vanilla. Beat on low speed until combined. Add flour mixture. Beat on low speed until combined, scraping sides of bowl. Stir in walnuts. Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake in a 350 deg oven for 30 minutes or until brownies appear set. Cool in pan before cutting out.
These are a little trouble, but are worth it. Trust me on this.
