            Erious chocolate brownies
  
   This is an adaptation of the “Scrumptious Brownies” recipe found on a box
   of
   Baker’s
   unsweetened chocolate. I've reduced the amounts of sugar and flour from
   the
   original,
   which I find makes for a very fudgey brownie.
   
   INGREDIENTS (32 brownies)
   
    8 oz unsweetened chocolate (8 squares)
       1/2 lb butter
         5    eggs
     2 1/2    cups sugar
         1    Tbsp vanilla extract
     1 1/2    cups flour
   2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)
   
   PROCEDURE
   Grease a 13x9 inch pan and pre-heat oven to 375 deg. F. Melt the chocolate
   and the
   butter in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Whisk until
   smooth. Set aside
   to cool while beating eggs.
   
   Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla at high speed for a full 10 minutes.
   
   Blend in the chocolate-and-butter mixture at low speed.
   
   Add flour, beating just to blend. Stir in walnuts, if desired. Bake 30 to
   35
   minutes. Do
   not overbake. The brownies are done when a toothpick inserted into the
   center comes
   out slightly dirty. Cool in pan, then cut into squares.
   
   RATING:
   Difficulty: easy to moderate. Time: 30 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooking
   and cooling.
   Precision: measure the ingredients.
