Emma Waverman and Eshun's One Pot Brownies


I love brownies. As you can tell from the amount of brownie recipes on this site, I don't think you can ever have too many ways to make them-and yes, every time I find a new recipe I try it. When I came across this recipe by Emma Waverman, resistance was futile! Emma is the coolest-we chat a lot on twitter, I read her blog, and I'm going to get to meet her in person at Blissdom! I'm so excited!

The brownies were amazing; while still warm, melty and gooey, Jake and I gobbled down big bites of them with cold glasses of milk. Even Hubs succumbed to the chocolatey goodness and had a piece. It was resolved then and there that I must make another pan for lunches, and take one to school for a co-worker. They are that yummy.

Emma and Eshun's One Pot Brownies

(adapted from Whining and Dining, found on Lucy Waverman's site)

1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa, sifted (preferably Dutch Canada, that would be Fry's)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Pre-heat your oven to 35o F and line an 8x8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Parchment paper is the bomb. What I love about it is that you can just lift the brownies out of the pan when they are cool and they make for such easy clean up.

In double boiler over hot, but not boiling water, melt the butter and bittersweet chocolate until smooth, stirring. Let cool slightly. Whisk in the sugar and then the eggs, until the mixture is thick and glossy.

In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, salt, and cocoa. Add to the chocolate mixture, stirring until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and the nuts, if using.

Spoon batter into your pan, spreading it evenly. Lick the knife. Obviously.

Bake for about 25 minutes, or until you test them with a cake tester and you still have a few moist crumbs clinging. Let them cool on a rack before slicing up and devouring greedily.

Makes 12 decent sized brownies, although the recipe says 32 (12 in our house) Hey, they're thin. Or we're pigs. You decide.
