Do not skip the 'leave out of oven for 15 minutes step' - this will bake the brownies incorrectly and you won't get that all important moist fudgy taste.

Ingredients

EQUIPMENT: AN 18- BY 13-INCH RIMMED BAKING SHEET (A.K.A. HALF-SHEET PAN)

6 oz
unsweetened chocolate (100 percent cacao), chopped
3 stick
(1 1/2 cups) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
3 c
sugar
6 large
eggs
1 Tbsp
pure vanilla extract
1 tsp
fine sea salt
1/2 c
unsweetened cocoa powder (any type, as long as it’s unsweetened)
1/2 c
all-purpose flour
maldon sea salt, if desired

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat the oven to 325°F with the rack in the middle. Lightly grease or butter the pan and line it with parchment or foil.
2
Melt the chocolate with the butter in a large metal bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove the bowl from the pan and whisk in the sugar.
3
Add the eggs, 1 at a time, whisking well after each addition, and whisk the mixture vigorously until it is smooth and cohesive. Whisk in the vanilla and salt. Sift the cocoa over the batter and stir with a whisk until it is incorporated and the batter is smooth. Sift the flour over the batter and stir with the whisk in the same manner until the batter is smooth.
4
Spread the batter evenly in the pan and, if desired, sprinkle the top lightly with flakes of Maldon sea salt. Bake 15 minutes.
5
Remove the pan from the oven and let the brownies rest 15 minutes at room temperature. Return the brownies to the oven and continue to bake them until a wooden pick comes out clean, 17 to 20 minutes.
6
Cool the brownies completely in the pan on a rack. Cut the brownies into serving pieces.
