Bakery Brownies

Notes: We made this without the nuts, just because we didn’t have any. Everyone loved these brownies. Next time I’ll try them with nuts.

Servings: 24 | Total Time: About 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks butter, plus extra for greasing the 9×13 dish.
  • 8 oz bittersweet chocolate (I used the Ghirardelli chocolate bars you find in the baking section)
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6.38 oz flour, or 1- 1/2 cups if you don’t have scales
  • 2 – 1/2 cups toasted chopped pecans or walnuts

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9×13 inch glass baking dish.
  3. 1n a medium saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a stand mixer using paddle attachment, beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Turn mixer to low. Beat in melted chocolate. Add salt and flour and beat just until combined. Gently fold in nuts.
  6. Pour batter into pan. Bake in center of oven until puffed and almost set, about 45 minutes. A toothpick inserted will be slightly moist. Remove and cool slightly before serving.
