First Among Brownies

This is the recipe that started everything. It's fudgy enough but light enough that everyone loves it. I generally only put nuts in it, it isn't dense enough to support a whole lot of extras. The original recipe includes frosting but I never use it, who can be bothered?

This is a variation of one published in the Australian Women's Weekly Biscuits & Slices book.

Crowd Pleaser Brownies
125g butter
185g dark chocolate
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I'd go with walnuts)

20 cm square cake pan, lined with baking paper.                  Oven @ 160c

Melt butter and chocolate together (either in a saucepan or in the microwave). Stir in sugar and essence, then eggs, flour, and nuts.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 mins or until just firm. Cool in pan.
