One of best brownies I ever made.



  • 1 1/4 cups 175g all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup 225g unsalted butter
  • 6 oz 180g dark chocolate (I use 70% or more), coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup 200g dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup 200g white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or paste
  • 4 large eggs (at room tº)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF / 180ºC.
  2. Line a 9-inch (20x20cm) square pan with parchment or aluminum paper.
  3. Melt butter and chocolate over low heat being careful not to scorch it, and when almost melted, add the dark brown sugar and mix for 30 seconds.
  4. Take off the heat and transfer to a large bowl.
  5. Add the rest of the sugar and the vanilla and mix well.
  6. Add the eggs and beat by hand until very well mixed.
  7. Add flour and salt (sifted before, or directly over the chocolate batter) and mix.
  8. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes aprox, until a bit jiggly in the middle. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  9. They are better the next day in my opinion.
  10. They keep for a few days and can be frozen up to a month, well wrapped.
