3/4 c sugar
1 t vanilla
1/2 c melted butter
2 T milk
3/4 c cocoa
2/3 c unbleached flour
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/2 to 1 c toasted, chopped walnuts
4 T unsalted butter
1 oz semisweet chocolate
1/4 c sugar
3 T milk
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine eggs with sugar and vanilla. Add butter and milk.
Stir cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt together. Combine with egg mixture. Stir in nuts.
Spread into a greased 8″ square pan or one lined with parchment paper.
Bake 25 minutes. These should still be a bit fudgy. (If you stick toothpick in, there should still be some crumbs sticking to it.) Allow to cool before glazing.
To Make Chocolate Glaze:
Melt butter over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and add chocolate, sugar and milk. Continue heating over low heat, stirring often until mixture is smooth. Don’t let this boil.
Pour hot glaze over cooled brownies and refrigerate to chill brownies.
Slice and serve chilled…IMO!
