"Like all great desserts," says Anne Quatrano, "these brownies have only three pertinent flavors: chocolate, butter and walnuts." Quatrano, an F&W Best New Chef 1995, is the chef of a small empire of restaurants in Atlanta.

blog Baking Tips from F&W Editors

  1. 1 pound unsalted butter
  2. 1 1/2 pounds semisweet chocolate, chopped
  3. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  4. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  5. 1 teaspoon salt
  6. 6 large eggs
  7. 2 1/2 cups sugar
  8. 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
  9. 2 tablespoons strong-brewed espresso
  10. 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
  11. 1 cup walnut halves, lightly toasted and coarsely chopped (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray a 9-by-13-inch glass or ceramic baking dish with cooking spray. In a double boiler, melt the butter with the chopped chocolate over low heat. In a small bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, using a handheld mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar at medium-high speed until pale and thick, 4 minutes. Beat in the vanilla and espresso. Add the flour mixture and beat until just incorporated. Beat in the melted chocolate at medium speed. Using a spoon, stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  3. Scrape the batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake in the center of the oven for about 1 hour, until the top is shiny and lightly cracked, the edges are set and the center is still a bit jiggly. Transfer the dish to a rack and let cool completely. Cut the brownie into 12 large rectangles and serve.
Make Ahead The brownies can be kept in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or wrapped in foil and frozen for up to 3 months.
