Easy One Bowl Brownies

image

These brownies only have a handful of ingredients in them… if you don’t include the dust that has coated our entire house.

We are re-doing our floors for the second time since we moved in.  The first time did not exactly work out and I think it might be due to lack of brownies offered to the construction crew.

These are the easiest brownies I’ve ever made, come together in one bowl and were gone 15 minutes after I offered them.  If these floors work out these brownies get some serious credit.

You’ll need:

  • 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, plus more for greasing the pan
  • 0.75 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 0.25 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour, plus extra for dusting the pan

To Make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Butter and flour a round spring form pan (or an 8X8 baking dish).
  2. Place the butter and chocolate in a large heat proof dish and melt over a double boiler.  Stir until 90 % melted (you don’t want it too hot when you add the eggs).  Remove from heat and stir until completely melted.  Let cool slightly.
  3. Whisk in sugar.  Whisk in eggs one at a time.  Whisk in vanilla.  Add flour and salt and stir until just combined.  Scrape into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes.
