Firstly I have no idea why they are called Moosewood Fudge Brownies, but boy do they taste good, one of the best brownies I've tasted. And the great part is that to make them was so unbelievably easy. I will be making these again and again for sure.
250g butter, softened, not melted
155g dark chocolate, melted and cooled
1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plain flour
Preheat oven to 180C.
Cream the butter, light brown sugar and eggs. Add vanilla extract. Beat in the melted, cooled chocolate and plain flour. I modified the recipe by adding 1 cup of roasted cashew nuts.
Spread into a buttered 23 x 33cm baking pan. Bake 20-30 minutes.
One batch makes about 24 brownies.
I used dark (40% cocoa) cooking chocolate and found the flavour just right. I think using 70% cocoa chocolate would make the brownies too bitter, but if you prefer that, do whatever you wish.
The brownies are nice and moist and taste so good. I felt that the nuts really added an extra flavour to them so I recommend you put them in. I also melted some white chocolate and drizzled that on top, again to add another dimension to the flavour. All up, this is one great brownie and so simple I will never pay $2.50 for another store bought brownie again.
