Aunt Myra's Fudge Brownies

Author/Submitted by: lynne nishihara <vectr01q@HUEY.CSUN.EDU>
Servings: 1
Categories: Brownies / Chocolate / Desserts

8  Tbsp  Unsalted Butter
4  Oz  Semi-Sweet Chocolate, coarsely chopped
2  Large  Eggs, at room temperature
    Pinch Of Salt
2/3  Cup  Granulated Sugar
2  Tsp  Vanilla Extract
1/2  Cup  All-Purpose Flour
1  Cup  Walnuts, coarsely chopped

1) Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 325F. Line an 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil and lightly butter the foil. 2) In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Let stand for 5 minutes and then stir until smooth. 3) In a large bowl combine the eggs and salt; beat with a handheld electric mixer until frothy, about 30 seconds. Gradually beat in the sugar and continue to beat until light, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and the melted chocolate and butter, beating until smooth. With a spoon, stir in the flour just until blended. Stir in the walnuts if you wish to use them and turn the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for about 30 - 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near the center emerges with a few crumbs clinging to it. Do not overbake or the brownies will be dry. Place the pan on a rack and cool to room temperature. 4) While the brownies are cooling, prepare the frosting which is optional, but a delicious addition. In a small heavy saucepan over very low heat, combine the cream and chocolate. Stirring constantly, heat just until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the confectioner's sugar. 5) With a knife, loosen the edge all around and pull out the cooled brownies by the aluminum foil and invert on a board. Peel off and discard foil. Return to brownies to the pan right side up and spread with fudge frosting. Let stand in a cool place for an hour or two. ut into 16 small squares with a sharp knife.

I think it's good without the frosting. Source: Jim Fobel's Baking Boo
