2 ounces bittersweet (baking) chocolate
cup butter ( stick)
2 eggs (room temperature)
⅛ teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated white sugar
teaspoon vanilla extract
cup all-purpose flour
cup chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Grease 8-inch X 8-inch square or 9-inch round cake pan.

3. Break chocolate into pieces and put in glass measuring cup; add butter; microwave on high about 30 second, just until butter has melted; remove from microwave and stir; if chocolate has not melted completely, return to microwave for 10 seconds, then stir again; repeat until chocolate is just barely melted; set aside to cool (do not use while still hot).

4. Beat eggs & salt with whisk in large bowl until light and foamy.

5. Gradually add sugar to eggs, whisking well after each addition; beat until very smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes.

6. Add vanilla to egg mixture and whisk until incorporated.

7. Add cooled chocolate and butter mixture to egg mixture; fold together with a rubber spatula.

8. Before chocolate and egg mixtures are completely mixed together, add flour; continue folding.

9. Before flour is completely mixed in, add nuts; continue folding just until mixture is evenly colored.

10. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 25 minutes; center will appear crusty but will be quite soft; cake is done when it just begins to pull away from sides of pan.

11. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
Seems like this yields thin brownies. Not that it's a bad thing, but just wanted to set expectations...

Tried the brownies from the OP...VERY FUDGE-LIKE and chewy...Too much for me and my guests...I may try this again and put a total of 2.5 cups of flour, still minimal mixing to prevent gluten...

Edit: Just wanted to add, if you like fudge-like, this is the recipe for you :D

I have yet to meet a brownie recipe that I didn't like and this one sounds awesome. I like to make a Martha Stewart super fudgy brownie recipe which is similar to the one Susan posted but it makes a smaller batch (and thus less guilt when I devour the whole pan).
