Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

2 Sticks unsalted butter
4 Squares, 1 oz. each
Unsweetened baking chocolate
I use Bakers'
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
2 Cup(s) Sugar
3 Eggs, large size
Vanilla extract, I prefer
Madagascar Bourbon and use a
Lot of it), Lot of it
1 Cup(s) All-purpose unbleached
Preheat oven to 350. Melt the chocolate with 1 stick (4 oz.) of butter
and the salt. Put the remaining 4 oz. unsalted butter in the bowl of
an electric mixer. Beat until soft, grandually adding the sugar until
well blended. Dump in the vanilla. Add next. Add the melted
chocolate-butter (I prefer NOT to let it cool, but add it while it is
still quite warm) and mix until well blended. (No need to wash the pan
yet, for you will be using it to make the frosting.) Add the flour and
mix at low speed until just blended. Turn the batter into a prepared
(greased and floured 7x11-inch) baking pan and bake for 35, 45
minutes, depending on your oven and your preference for moist
brownies. Cool in a baking rack. Fudge Frosting: 1 cup sugar 1 oz.
unsweetened baking chocolate 1 pinch of salt 1/2 cup heavy (whipping)
cream* vanilla extract Gently melt the chocolate with the sugar, salt
, and cream. Take care not to overstir, as it may cause the fudge to
"sugar". Cook to the soft-ball stage and transfer to the bowl of an
electric mixer. Beat at medium speed until it has cooled and then add
the vanilla. Beat until it loses its shiny sheen and becomes thick
frosting. Frost cooled brownies with the fudge frosting. *If I have
whipping cream which has soured or creme fraiche on hand I prefer
using them, as I like the tang they impart to the frosting. These are
very rich. I cut them into rather small squares. Serve in a bowl with
vanilla ice cream to be really, really bad. ;-) File
