I can help you flawlessly follow the recipe with these step-by-step photos and detailed instructions. These brownies are fudgy and oh so delicious!
Begin by greasing the pan and preheating the oven. In this case, it's to 325 degrees F. for dark metal and/or glass pans. The next step is to melt 8 ounces of unsweetened chocolate and 1 cup of butter over low heat.
While the chocolate and butter are beginning to melt, it's time to toast the nuts. There are several ways to toast nuts, do however you would like. Just put 2-1/2 cups of chopped walnuts in a foil lined pan and set it for medium toasted.
In a mixing bowl, add 5 eggs, 3 cups of sugar and 1 tablespoon of vanilla. Mix for 10 minutes.
It's not necessary, but this is one of the recipes that owning a stand mixer would come in handy.
Mix 1-1/2 cups flour and 1 teaspoon of salt in a separate bowl with a wire whisk.
Remove chocolate mixture from stove and set aside to cool slightly.
This recipe has no leavening agent such as baking powder or soda. There's not a need when the egg mixture gets this much volume from mixing it for 10 minutes.
While the mixer is running slowly add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture. If a stand mixer is unavailable, add the chocolate a little at a time between mixings.
While mixing gradually add the flour.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Do not over bake.
Cool in a pan on wire rack. Cut into squares.
This recipe makes 24 to 30 squares, depending on how it's cut.
Then, set aside and let them cool off for about 5-10 minutes. After the time is up you can now eat and enjoy!
