The Ultimate Brownie
March 02, 2011

I'm glad to have found a good, easy brownie recipe using pantry staples. I appreciate everyone's feedback. Here's what I tweaked slightly: 1. Melt 1 1/2 cups butter in saucepan on low. 2. Stir in 1 1/4 cups cocoa. 3. Remove from heat, add 3 cups sugar, then 1 tsp. salt and 2 tsp. vanilla. 4. Stir in 5 large eggs. 5. Stir in 1 1/4 cups flour, then 1 cup nuts (I prefer pecans). 6. Pour batter into non-stick 9x13 pan. No need to use foil, parchment, or even non-stick spray. 7. Bake in preheated oven (350 F) for 45 minutes. I covered mine with foil the last 10 minutes. Cool briefly on cooling rack and serve warm. Cuts into perfect squares. It's a great standard brownie recipe! Lovely texture and taste. It would be excellent with a vanilla ice cream topped with a chocolate ganache. Thank you.
