The bestest (is so a word), richest, not too gooey but not too cakey recipe on the planet for brownies! I’m not kidding. These are the kind you better make for other people or with other people in attendance or you will eat the entire pan before it has a chance to cool!
6 squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted or 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder and 1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
Mix everything but the flour together until throughly mixed. Add flour a little at a time and mix. This ends up being a thick batter. Pour into a greased 8 by 8 or 9 by 9 baking pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
