Double Chocolate Brownies

Via via martha stewarts cookies

These were very very nice. I really liked the simplicity of just plain chocolate brownies yet the salt adds depth to the flavour. they also kept quite well lasting a good few days without drying out too much

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 ounces semisweet chocolate
1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
3/4 cup plain flour
1/4 teaspoon bakingpowder
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1. preheat oven to 350 f and butter and line with parchment a 8" square pan

2. melt the chocolate butter and cocoa powder on a double boiler and set aside to cool slightly

3. mix together with a whisk yje flour salt and sugar

4. in an electric mixer with whisk attached mix the sugar eggs and vanilla until pale, around 4 minutes on medium speed. add the chocolate mixture until well combined then reduce speed and add the flour mixture and mix again till well combined

5. put mixture in pan and bake for around 35 mins or until tester comes out with crumbs but not wet. let it cool in pan for 15 minutes before taking out and cutting up.
