David Leibovitz’s Robert’s Best Brownies
Source: David Leibovitz
Makes about: one 8×8’’ pan
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 30 minutes.
I made a half recipe in a 9×5 loaf pan. It’s extremely chocolately, and definitely the most richly chocolately of the brownie recipes I’ve tried so far. Unfortunately, the texture was a bit loose/crumbly, although it was pretty fudgy.
6 tablespoons (3 ounces) butter
8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, or pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped.
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare 8×8’’ pan.
2. Melt butter and chocolate together.
3. Mix in sugar.
4. Beat in eggs.
5. Mix in flour, nuts, vanilla until glossy.
6. Bake 30 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
