Recipe by: Meghan Sanders


  • 4 oz (~ 113g) of unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1 cup (225g) of unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste


  1. Melt butter and chocolate and set aside away from heat to let it cool.
  2. Beat eggs and add sugar. Stir or mix until well combined. Stir in vanilla.
  3. After ensuring the chocolate mixture has had sufficient time to cool, slowly add this to the egg mixture. This is easiest to do with an electric mixer.
  4. After chocolate and egg mixtures are combined, stir in flour.
  5. Take care to remove any lumps. Pour batter into square baking pan or (for ‘dressier look’ use a circular spring-form cake pan).
  6. Bake at 350F (175C) for 30-40 minutes.
  7. If you would like a ‘dressed up’ brownie, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with berries.
