When I make this for friends, I add nuts. When I make this for myself, I add raisins. I've tried M&M candies, toffee bits, and candy confetti -- it's very flexible.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 6 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
- 2/3 cup butter
- 2 cups white sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.
Melt the chocolate and butter in the top of a double-boiler, stirring sporadically. When melted and combined, add the sugar and eggs, and stir until combined. Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder into the pan; stir until combined. Stir in the nuts (or raisins, or M&M candies, or toffee bits, etc.).
Spread the batter in the pan, smoothing it into the corners. Bake for about 35 minutes, but don't let it over-bake. Cool before cutting.
