  • 170 grams (6 oz) semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped into small pieces
  • 150 grams (2/3 cup) unsalted butter
  • 170 grams (3/4 cup and 1 tablespoon) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 105 grams (3/4 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt to taste (optional)
  • 130 grams (4,6 oz) semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F(177C°).  Grease 8 inch (20cm) square oven-proof dish and line the bottom and sides with parchment paper, about 2 inches(5 cm) of overhang on each side.

  2. Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat until it is halfway melted. Take it from the heat and stir until it is all melted.  The butter shouldn’t be very hot but warm. Add the roughly chopped chocolate (with small pieces-170 grams-6 ounce) into the butter and stir with a spatula.  It may take 20-30 seconds until all the chocolate melts. Set aside.

  3. Place the sugar and eggs into a large bowl and stir until it is just combined for almost 20-30 seconds. Don’t over mix not to make cakey brownies. Mix in the vanilla.

  4. Pour the butter-chocolate mixture into the sugar mixture and mix until combined, do not overmix.  

  5. Add the flour and gently stir with a spatula until just totally combined.

  6. Fold in the large chocolate chunks into the mixture. Place into the dish and bake for 25 minutes or until the toothpick has wet crumbs when inserted.

  7. Let it cool in the pan at least for 1 hour and cut into 12-16 slices.
