Moosewood Fudge Brownies

For years, I've had a favorite, tried and true brownie recipe. But recently I decided I prefer fudgy brownies to cakey ones. So I had to find a new recipe. This one is from the Moosewood Restuarant Cooks at Home book, which means it's fast and easy. And so yummy!

1/2 cup butter
3 squares (1 oz each) unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup white flour

Preheat oven to 350. Prep a 8 or 9 inch square pan.

In a heavy large pot, melt the butter and chocolate together, stirring occasionally. While they melt, assemble the rest of the ingredients.

When the butter and chocolate have melted, remove the pot from the heat. Add the brown sugar and vanilla and beat by hand or with an electric mixer. Beat the eggs separately, and then stir them in. Stir in the flour, and mix until the batter is thoroughly blended and smooth.

Pour the batter into the pan and bake for about 20 minutes, until the brownies are just beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan, and are fudgy in the center.
