Saucepan Brownies

I think these are my new favorite brownies to make. They’re easy, with minimal tools and ingredients required. In fact, I first found this recipe because I only had two eggs and baker’s chocolate squares and I wanted to make brownies. Trust me, it is not easy finding a brownie recipe that only has two eggs AND does not use cocoa powder. But, nonetheless, I did, and these are delicious.  No pictures, because I am lazy, and because I am sure that you know what brownies look like by now. 🙂Ingredients:

* 6 tablespoons butter
* 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 cup granulated sugar
* 2 large eggs
* 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Heat oven to 325°. Grease and flour an 8-inch square baking pan.

In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and chocolate, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and let cool. With a whisk, beat in the vanilla and sugar. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir flour, measure into a small bowl, and stir in the baking powder and salt, blending well. With a wooden spoon, stir the flour mixture into the first mixture. Stir in the chopped nuts, blending well. Spoon into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake the brownies for about 25 minutes.
