This is so simple, and so completely homemade. I haven't tried any substitutions in this recipe, such as oil or applesauce for butter, or whole wheat flour. I mean, brownies are brownies, and probably shouldn't be fiddled with too much! This is based on a brownie recipe from an old Joy cookbook.

How to Make Double Rich Brownies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan for chewy, moist brownies. For cake-like brownies, use a 9 x 9 inch pan.
  • 2Melt butter and chocolate together in microwave or over a double boiler. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • 3Make the brownies by hand mixing, not a mixer. Do not overmix. Beat eggs and salt together until light and foamy in texture. Gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla.
  • 4Combine the cooled chocolate mixture with the egg mixture. Before totally mixed, fold in the flour. Before it is uniformly mixed, stir in the pecans.
  • 5Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake about 25 minutes. Do not cut until cool, as the inside will still be moist until it cools.
