It's Monday and I couldn't think of a catchy headline to my post about brownies. "Fudge Brownies" should be enticing enough. I got this recipe from Martha Stewart Everyday. Don't overbake these brownies - otherwise they won't be as moist.
8 oz. semi-sheet chocolate, chopped
1 stick of butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-inch baking pan. Line bottom and two sides with parchment paper - cut it to make sure about 2 inches hangs over the 2 edges. Butter the parchment paper. In a large bowl, microwave chopped chocolate and butter about 2-3 minutes. Mix until smooth. Add sugar and mix until combined. Add eggs. Sift and mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix just until combined. Don't overmix. Pour into pan and bake on the middle rack for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out nearly clean (it should have a few moist crumbs).
Cool 20-30 minutes. Take two edges of parchment paper and pull the brownies up and out of the pan. Slice however you choose. Eat and enjoy.
