Original recipe yields 2 - 9 inch square pans



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8 or 9 inch square baking pans.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and butter until smooth. Mix in the egg yolks and melted chocolate, then stir in the flour. Combine milk and vanilla, and mix into the batter. In a separate glass or metal bowl, whip the egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold into the chocolate batter along with the walnuts. Spread batter evenly into the prepared pans.
  4. Bake for 28 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven. The edge of the brownies will pull away slightly from the side of the pan when done. Sprinkle one pan with confectioners' sugar and put chocolate frosting of your choice on the other. Enjoy!

The max time of baking is 38 minutes, when I checked my brownies they were way underbaked. I then turned my oven up to 350 and baked for about 10 minutes more. I will never use this recipe again

I made this for my husband and his friends at work (UT Hospital, Knoxville, TN) Everyone gave these brownies 5+. My husband is a brownie freak and he says these are the best brownies he has ever had, much better than package brownies at Walmart..Thanks Mary!!



TEXTURE IS GREAT! This is the texture I've been searching for in my brownies all along. I'm giving this recipe 4 stars instead of 5 only because I thought it could have been just a little bit more chocolatey, but I am a chocoholic. I think next time I will use bittersweet chocolate instead of unsweetened and decrease the sugar by half and see how that works. I took these to work and everyone LOVED them!!
