Dorie Greenspan's Classic Brownies

Makes : 16 brownies

Ingredients :
  • 5 tbsp.  unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 6 oz.  dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp.  vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp.  instant espresso powder ( optional )
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 to 1 cup chopped walnuts

    Method :
    • Preheat oven to 325 F / 160 C. Line an ( 8 ) inch square pan with foil, butter the foil.
    • In a heatproof bowl, combine butter and chocolate. Set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until the ingredients are just melted. Remove the bowl from the pan of water.
    • Whisk in the sugar. Whisk in the eggs, one by one. Add vanilla and espresso; whisk well.
    • Gently stir in the salt and flour just until incorporated. Fold in the chopped walnuts, with a spatula.
    • Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with the spatula.
    • Bake the brownies for 30 to 33 minutes, or until the top is dull and a knife inserted into the center come out clean.
    • Transfer the pan to a wire-rack and cool completely at room temperature.
    • Then lift the brownies from the pan using the foil, peel away the foil. Cut into 16 squares, each ( about 2 inches ).
    • Serve with ice cream, at room temperature or a bit chilled.
    • These brownies are best served within 2 days of baking. For storing at room temperature, just cut what you need and keep the remainder wrapped tightly in plastic wrap. Or freeze the brownies for up to 2 months, wrapped airtight.
