Katharine Hepburn's Brownies

  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter
  • 2 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon 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 1/3 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 30-35 minutes. 

This recipe is only slightly modified from based on a reader suggestion.  My step mom, Kris, made these for us and they are so ridiculously good I had to make them myself to share with dinner club!  We definitely added the walnuts... amazing!  These are a more "fudgy" brownie as opposed to a "cakey" brownie, so make sure that suits you.  Phenomenal and very easy to make!
