These brownies are between cakey and fudgey. They are quite chocolaty and tasty, as I know because I almost did not get a chance to take a picture of them before they were devoured by my roommates. The recipe is a hand-me-down from my friend’s mother. Really simple and no special ingredients. (and no nuts either! ;))
My notes about the recipe: I didn’t have 12oz of chocolate chips, but I had 6oz chips and 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate squares. I melted the squares with the unsweetened chocolate and butter. Then followed the recipe as is. I just used a rubber spatula to mix and fold in the ingredients, and it seemed to be pretty thick and fudgey. I also put the batter in a 9×9 pan (or 8×8-can’t remember) which usually helps make them fudgier, too.
4oz unsweetened baker’s chocolate
½ lb butter
2 cup sugar
4 eggs (unbeaten)
1 1/3 cup flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 t vanilla
12 oz. chocolate chips
Melt chocolate and butter. Add sugar and mix. Add eggs and mix. Add all dry ingredients. Cool mixture. Fold in vanilla and chocolate chips. Bake in 13×9 greased pan for 35 minutes @ 350 degrees. Turn off oven and leave in 5 more minutes. (If you are using a smaller pan, you may need 5 minutes more.) Cool at least ½ hour in pan.
