First, it is best to visit the Scharfenberger factory in Berkeley, which Cook's magazine says has the best chocolate, which is worth the price, and buy unsweetened chocolate, and other chocolate, too. If you are in a pinch, though, use what you have. Whole Foods also sells Scharfenberger chocolate, but it is not so much fun without the tour.
So, here it is - my easy, fast, and quick Brownie recipe.
Preheat oven to 300. Grease an 8 inch pan.
Melt 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate with 1 stick butter.
Remove from heat and add 1 cup sugar and 1 egg.
Add 1/8 tsp. salt and 1/2 cup flour.
Add 1 tsp. vanilla.
Bake 22 minutes.
Yum!! All problems will dissolve in your mouth and your tummy will sing songs of gratitude throughout the day and night.
