Servings: 6 to 8
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 20 min
1 cup (2 sticks) plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 ounces chopped unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare an 8 by 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a double boiler, or a microwave set on low power, melt the butter and chocolate, stirring frequently. Transfer the chocolate mixture to a large bowl and let cool. Whisk in the cocoa until smooth. Whisk in the granulated sugar. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Fold in the flour and salt until just blended.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the brownies are slightly overdone (they should be gooey inside), 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
