Best-Ever Brownies

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Found this recipe in my 1974 "Family Circle" cookbook.

I gave it a try last nite, and let me tell ya. These were the best brownies yet!

The only thing i changed was the temp and time.

I baked at 325º instead of 350º, and baked for 45 mins (or until a toothpick came out clean) instead of 30.

All the recipes i try will brown too much if i follow the directions on the temp. It must be my oven or an altitude thing.








2 squares unsweetened chocolate

½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1teaspoon vanilla

½ cup sifted all-purpose flour

1/8th teaspoon salt

¾ cup chopped walnuts (optional)



1.Melt chocolate and butter or margarine in a small saucepan over low heat; cool.

2. Beat eggs in a small bowl with electric mixer;gradually beat in sugar until mixture is fluffy and thick.

   Stir in chocolate mixture and vanilla.

3. Fold in flour and salt until well blended; stir in walnuts (optional).Spread evenly in an 8x8x2-inch greased baking pan.

4. Bake in moderate oven (350º) 30 minutes, or until shiny and firm on top. Cool in pan on wire rack.
