  • 12 tablespoons butter, I used salted -- if using unsalted, about 3/8 tsp salt (170 grams)
  • 5 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped (140 grams)
  • 1 3/4 cup granulated sugar (350 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, stir well and measure carefully if you don't have a scale (140 grams)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 inch square pan with nonstick foil or line with regular foil and spray foil with cooking spray.
  • Place butter and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl; Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Continue microwaving and stirring every 30 seconds until mixture is melted. Set aside and let cool for 5 minutes.
  • In a second bowl, beat sugar, vanilla, and eggs with electric mixer on high for a full 5 minutes. Stir melted chocolate mixture into egg mixture. When chocolate is incorporated, stir in flour. Pour into pan and bake for 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. For a cleaner cut, chill the brownies before cutting.
  • When cool, grasp foil, lift from pan, place on a cutting board and cut brownies into big squares.
