Using both bittersweet and unsweetened chocolate gives these brownies deep, sophisticated chocolate flavor. The consistency is fudgy, but not gooey or underdone.

ingredients

  • 10 tablespoons (5 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature; more for the pan
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 5 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour

directions

Position an oven rack in the middle of the oven. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8-inch square pan, line the pan bottom with parchment (or waxed paper), and then butter the parchment.

In a double boiler over simmering water, melt the butter and both chocolates. Remove the pan from the heat; cool slightly. Whisk in the sugar and then the vanilla and salt. The mixture will be somewhat grainy; this is okay.

Whisk in the eggs and egg yolk, one at a time, stirring each time until blended. Add the flour, beating until thickened and smooth, 30 to 60 seconds.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs (not wet batter) clinging to it, 35 to 45 minutes.

Set the pan on a rack until cool enough to handle. Run a paring knife around the inside edge of the pan and then invert the pan onto a flat surface and peel off the parchment. Flip the baked brownie back onto the rack to cool completely. Cut into squares with a sharp knife.

NOTE: All recipes can be doubled easily; use a 13x9-inch pan and increase the baking time slightly.The recipes give a range of baking times - use the shorter time for metal pans, the longer for Pyrex pans.
