1 hr 15 min


1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate

1 1/4 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8-inch square baking pan. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Melt butter and chocolate in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 4-7 minutes or until smooth. Remove from heat.

  3. STEP 3

    Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; mix just until all ingredients are moistened and brownie mixture is smooth. Stir in pecans.

  4. STEP 4

    Spread brownie mixture into prepared baking pan. Bake 25-33 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely.

Tip #1

- To substitute unsweetened cocoa for unsweetened baking chocolate, use 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa plus 1 tablespoon butter for each ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate.

Tip #2

- Reduce baking temperature by 25°F, if using dark or nonstick baking pan.

Tip #3

- To prepare brownies in 13x9-inch baking pan, double all ingredients. Bake 35-40 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan.

Tip #4

- For the most tender brownies, stir brownie mixture until smooth. Do not over-mix.
