Baker's Chocolate Brownies

Recipe adapted from Cooks
I just joined a baking group and this month they are making brownies. I looked for a recipe that called for Baker's chocolate,  because that is what I had in my cupboard when I decided to bake.
I made the cake-like version of this recipe and I don't think I will do that again.  I give this 2 stars but hope the fudgy brownie version is better.   I am going to keep this recipe and give the fudgy brownie a try, because so many people gave this recipe 5 stars.
4 sq. Baker's unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter
2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped nuts, optional
1/2 cup chopped oreo cookies optional

                                         1. Preheat oven 350.
2. Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwave bowl at high 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.
3. Stir sugar into chocolate. Mix in eggs and vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour and nuts. Spread in greased 13 x 9 inch pan. 4. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Cool in pan; cut into squares. Makes 24 fudgy brownies. Note: When using glass baking dish, bake at 325 degrees. For cake-like brownies, stir in 1/2 cup milk with eggs; use 1 1/2 cups flour.

I gave this recipe a 2 because I ended up throwing the last 2 away.  I don't think I have ever thrown a brownie away.  I don't want to blame the recipe, it could be because I followed the cake-like recipe.
 I think I don't really like cake-like brownies.  I had been wanting to try a cake-like brownie recipe and I thought this would be the perfect time.  I think it also needed some chocolate chips.


  1. Yum! I want to eat that right now...

  2. Thanks, they were pretty good but I think the fudgy brownie will be better.

  3. I've had brownie sundaes in restaurants, never at home... great idea to make. Love it when the brownie is warm. Thanks for sharing this on foodie friday.

  4. your brownies look so decadent and loved the ice cream on top :)

  5. Thanks Diane and Dixya, icecream make everything better. :)
