Bittersweet Chocolate Brownies


Bittersweet Chocolate Brownies

Yield :  8″ x 8″


tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for the pan

2/3cup all-purpose flour, plus more for the pan

8ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate (at least 70 percent cacao), coarsely chopped

1/2teaspoon baking powder

1/4teaspoon kosher salt

2 large eggs

2teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2cup sugar



  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Coat an 8-inch-square baking pan with butter. Add a spoonful of flour, tilt to coat, and tap out any excess; set aside.
  3. In a double boiler or a large heatproof bowl placed over a pan of simmering water, combine the chocolate and butter. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate melts. Remove from heat; let cool.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
  5. Whisk the eggs and vanilla extract in a large bowl until foamy. Add the sugar and whisk until light and frothy, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in the cooled chocolate mixture. Add the flour mixture in 2 batches, whisking until incorporated after each addition. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.
  6. Bake until a skewer or toothpick inserted 1 inch from the edge of the pan comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes (a bit of moist batter should cling to the skewer). Transfer the pan to a rack to cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
