I was browsing at Smitten Kitchen¬†for a brownie recipe. I have had many failed attempts recently. On one of her recipes she was talking about her very favorite one bowl brownies which had been dissed by her commenters for being off the box of Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate. Many other commenters said how much they liked the “off the box” recipe. I am not one who likes recipes that include boxed ingredients, but this one doesn’t. It’s a from scratch recipe. I decided to try it today to make brownie sundaes for tonight’s activity at institute.


1- 4 oz package Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate
3/4 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour


Heat oven to 350 degrees

Line a 9X13″ pan with foil, leaving some hanging over the sides. Spray with cooking spray.

Microwave chocolate and butter on high in a large microwavable bowl for two minutes. Stir until chocolate is melted and combined with the butter.

Add sugar and stir to combine. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Finally stir in flour until just mixed.

Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely and then using the sides of foil carefully lift brownies out of the pan. Refrigerating them for awhile makes them easier to cut.
