Extra brownie points for this recipe. Sometimes all you need is a warm, gooey, fresh out of the oven chocolate brownie. Am I right? I think Im right. This recipe takes no time at all, and the end result is so worth it. My chocolate brownies are also a great addition to layered cake! Why not toss a layer of chocolate brownie in between some of my Ultimate Chocolate or Vanilla Cake, sandwiched with my Italian Meringue Buttercream. Sounds like a dream to me.

  •  ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  •  ½ teaspoon Salt

  • Place the chocolate and butter into a stainless steel bowl. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water, stir occasionally until melted.

  • Turn off the heat, and add the sugars and salt to the chocolate mixture. Whisk until incorporated.

  • Remove the bowl from the heat and add the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla. Whisk until incorporated.

  • Fold in the flour and cocoa powder, stir just until the dry ingredients disappear.

  • Pour the batter into two parchment lined 8 round pans. Bake the brownies at 350 for 30 minutes, rotating the pan halfway at the 15 minute mark. Cool completely, then chill.
