Moosewood Brownies

I think I've found my brownie recipe. I baked off a tray of these decadent, fudgy brownies for a pool party recently. The pool party ended up getting canceled...and guess what happened to all the brownies?

No, I didn't eat all of them. I froze half (they freeze beautifully--are even more moist once thawed) and shared them with lucky friends who happened to drop by over the next few weeks. I must confess, however, that I probably ate about half of them. I can't help it, I love a seriously good brownie.

Moosewood Brownies
adapted from Moosewood Cookbook

  • 5 ounces unsweetened chocolate (5 squares)
  • 2 sticks butter 
  • 1 3/4 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or anything else)


  1. Butter a 9x13-inch baking pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Gently melt the chocolate. Let it cool for about 10 minutes.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar in a medium-sized bowl until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.
  5. Stir in the vanilla.
  6. Stir constantly as you drizzle in the melted chocolate. After all the chocolate is in, beat well for a minute or two.
  7. Stir in flour.
  8. Mix just enough to blend thoroughly.
  9. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
  10. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center come out clean.
  11. Cut into squares while still hot, then allow to cool for at least 10 minutes, if you can wait that long.
