Katharine Hepburn's Brownies

Apparently this is the Hepburn family's brownie recipe. So I thought 'oooh fancy!' and wanted to try it out. It's the simplest and quickest brownie recipe I've tried so far! The results are delicious.


1 stick boodah
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tspn vanilla
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tspn salt
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Melt together 1 stick butter and 2 squares unsweetened chocolate and take the saucepan off the heat.
2. Stir in 1 cup sugar, add 2 eggs and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and beat the mixture well.

3. Stir in 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. (In the original recipe, 1 cup chopped walnuts is added here as well.)
4. Bake the brownies in a buttered and floured 8-inch-square pan at 325°F for about 40 minutes.
This was the only bit of mess I made!
If you want to smarten up your act you can put a square of brownie on a plate with a little blob of créme fraîche and a scattering of shaved chocolate.

There aren't any left in our house!

Make this now people!
