Sharing recipes is something I don't do very often, mainly because I don't cook very often!

But I'm trying to change that, & on Saturday night I got a nagging urge to bake. Brownies, specifically. 

I didn't have any baking chocolate, only cocoa powder, so I urgently consulted pinterest for appropriate recipes. 

& there it was: a recipe for fudgy, gooey brownies that I couldn't resist. 

10 tablespoons (a stick & a half) unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (80 grams) cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2  eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1// Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray non-stick cooking spray on an 8 inch pan.

2// Fill a sauce pan about halfway full of water (I used a double broiler for this step) & heat until simmering. Add powder, sugar, butter, & salt in a heat-safe bowl & rest over water to warm ingredients. 

3// Stir frequently until butter is melted, remove bowl from heat, & set aside for 3 to 5 minutes to let cool down a bit.

4// Stir in vanilla & eggs until well blended, then add in flour until fully mixed. The original recipe says to then beat the batter vigorously at least forty times. (you can use a hand mixer) 

5// Spread batter into 8 inch pan & bake for 20-25 minutes (I did the full 25) & VOILA!

This is one of the first times I've made brownies totally from scratch & this recipe  is fully worth it. 

Happy baking!
