Unplugged. Bittersweet Brownies

in Brownies, Chocolate, Recipes

BrowniesVerticalBrownies, the All-American fudgy, moist confections, are some of the easiest things to make. For this recipe all you need is a saucepan and a wooden spoon or spatula. And a love of chocolate. I’ve tweaked this recipe from Laurie Colwin’s article in the February, 1992, issue of Gourmet magazine. In the article, she says she got the recipe from a friend who in turn got it from a magazine piece on Katharine Hepburn.Ms.Hepburn includes walnuts in her family recipe. Ms. Colwin leaves them out, and so do I. The brownies are so moist that I find the walnuts intrusive.

I’ve upped the amount of chocolate by half because I like my brownies bittersweet. Let me warn you that it’s awfully hard to stop eating these brownies!

OK then, if you say they are hard to stop eating and Ms Hepburn loved them and they were a Family Recipe, then I’m IN! As I’m still housebound from foot surgery I will send Kane out to get all the ingredients I don’t have and make these this week. I love Walnuts and so will probably include a 1/2 cup or a wee bit more. Thanks Greg and hope you are having a FUNtastic time wherever you are!
Happy New Year!
