2007 Minnesota Aharts' Cookbook
Added: Sunday, October 28, 2007


1/2 Cup butter
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 of a 15 to 16 oz. can frosting, if you like

1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease baking pan with shortening.
2. Put butter and unsweetened chocolate in the saucepan. Cook over low heat until butter and chocolate are melted, stirring now and then with a wooden spoon. Remove saucepan from heat and cool to room temperature.
3. Use the wooden spoon to stir the sugar into cooled chocolate mixture in the saucepan. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating with the wooden spoon just until combined. Stir in the vanilla.
4. Put the flour and the baking soda in small bowl. Stir together using a clean wooden spoon. Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture. Stir until combined.
5. Spoon batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly with the wooden spoon.
6. Bake about 30 minutes for the 8X8X2 inch pan (or about 25 minutes for the 9X9X2 inch) or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Place pan on a wire rack to cool. If you like, use the table knife to spread frosting on cooled brownies. Top brownies if you like with nuts or crushed candy bars.
