Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks 175 grams unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • 3 ounces 84 grams unsweetened chocolate, broken into chunks (Lindt 99%)
  • 1/4 cup 28 grams unsweetened cocoa powder (Valrhona Dutch process)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 295 grams, I like superfine Baker's Sugar
  • 3 large eggs room temperature (150 grams)
  • 5/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour 70 grams
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8 inch metal pan with nonstick foil.
  • Combine the butter and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat at 50% power, stirring every 40 seconds, until chocolate mixture is melted and smooth. Alternatively, you can do this in a bowl set over water. Add the cocoa powder to the hot chocolate mixture and stir until smooth, then stir in half (3/4 cup) of the sugar.
  • Meanwhile, in a second bowl, gently whisk together eggs, remaining ¾ cup sugar, salt and vanilla. Scrape the sugar/egg mixture into the chocolate mixture and stir until blended, then stir in the ½ cup of flour. Stir in the walnuts, then scrape mixture into the pan.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until brownies appear set. If you have a meat thermometer, check to see that they are around 210 to 212 degrees F.
  • Let the brownies cool at room temperature, then chill for a while before lifting from pan, cutting and serving.
