Boston Brownies

Boston Brownies

If there is one desert that I always love it has to be brownies. They can be made in so many different way. With nuts or without nuts they are always a treat. As a child  our mother always had something sweet for us on Saturdays when she was off work. With 7 of us in the house she always made time to make some brownies. So here is an easy recipe that I know you will love.


16-  tbsp. butter, plus more for greasing.

4 oz – unsweetened chocolate
2 – cups sugar
2 – eggs beaten
1 1/2 – tsp. vanilla extract
1 – cup roughly chopped walnuts
1 – cup flour

Heat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease an 8″ x 8″ pan with butter.
Line the pan with parchment paper: grease the paper. Set the pan aside.
Melt the butter and chocolate together in a 2 quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sugar.
Add the eggs and the vanilla; stir until the batter is smooth. Add the walnuts and flour and stir until incorporated.
Pour the batter into the backing pan and spread it out evenly.
Bake the brownies for about an hour then check with a toothpick by inserting it into the center. You will want the toothpick to come out clean. If it does not then cook for a little longer.
After the brownies are cooked you will want the to cool for at least 2 hours before you cut and serve them. I like to put mine on a wire rack to cool, but you can just leave it in the pan to cool. Be sure and have vanilla ice cream on hand. Brownies are better when served with a scoop of ice cream on top.
