Moosewood Fudge Brownies

(From Mollie Katzen's Moosewood Cookbook)

5 oz unsweetened chocolate (or 15T cocoa and 5 T oil)
1/2 lb (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 3/4 cp packed light brown sugar
5 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cp flour
1 cp chopped walnuts

Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Preheat oven to 350F.

Gently melt the chocolate and then let it cool about 10 minutes -or- mix cocoa and oil.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Stir in the vanilla.

Stir constantly as you drizzle in the melted chocolate. After all the chocolate is in, beat well for a minute or two.

Stir in flour and walnuts. Mix just enough to blend thoroughly.

Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Cut into squares while still hot, then allow to cool for at least 10 minutes, if you can wait that long. :-)
