  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder natural or Dutch process
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 16 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and prepare an 8 inch square pan by lining it with parchment or foil.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the flour and the cocoa until well combined, then set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla, and whisk together. Mixture will be grainy but uniform. Add the eggs one at a time, whisking thoroughly after each addition.
  4. Set aside the whisk and add the flour/cocoa mixture to the large bowl. Stir with a large spoon or spatula until just combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  5. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs but no liquid batter attached. Set the pan on a rack to cool for 15 minutes, then use the pan liner to lift the brownies out. Set the brownies on a rack to finish cooling.
