Yay! I hit the jackpot. I finally found a brownie recipe that caters to my taste and requirements for the perfect brownie – chewy and fudgy with the right bite. I’m so happy now! Apparently the recipe is pretty popular too so I wonder why I’ve never made it before.

It’s called the Katharine Hepburn Brownie. Make it now if you like your brownies fudgy and chewy!

(taken from here)

Ingredients:

  • 8 tbsp. unsalted butter, plus more for greasing
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¼ tsp. fine salt

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 325°. Grease an 8″ x 8″ baking pan with butter. Line the pan with parchment paper; grease the paper. Set the pan aside.
  2. Melt the butter and the chocolate together in a 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla and stir to make a smooth batter. Add the walnuts, flour, and salt; stir until incorporated.
  3. Pour the batter into the baking pan and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40–45 minutes. Let cool on a rack. Cut and serve.
