Original recipe yields 2 dozen



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. Melt the butter over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the sugar and vanilla. Combine the flour and salt, gently stir into the mixture until just blended. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan.

This is a great recipe but if you want a more fudgey, chocolatey brownie use 3 eggs instead of four and use 1 cup of flour instead of 1 1/2. The more eggs you use, the more cake-like your brownies will be and the more flour you use, the less chocolatey they will taste.



I followed the recipe to a 'T' the reviews first and the repeating responses of not chocolatey or sweet enough but decided to follow exactly and could always add a frosting if not sweet enough. I gave a '4' rating because of ease of presentation, just the right size for a 9x13 pan, they baked up beautifully in my oven for 28 minutes(just until they started to pull away from the sides of the pan), and there were no scorches, burns, and very evenly baked. The texture is somewhere between cakey and fudgey so I think they would be suitable to please everyone on both ends of the sprectrum. The color is not a deep chocolate color so do agree they need more chocolate, and they are not really sweet enough. I am going to finish these off with a frosting and they will be lovely. I did add a bunch of chopped walnuts to the batter but kept everything else the same. They would be better if a bit more chocolate and sugar were in the recipe. I'm still searching for a really fudgey rich brownie like my friend Joan used to make.



These are some of the best brownies I have eaten. I have tried many different recipes but they never seem to be the right consistency of fudgy/cakey. These are perfect. The joke amongst my friends and I is that you can't have just one. It is unfortunately true.
