It makes my mouth water just to think about this. Top with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla or Cinnamon Ice Cream and you have yourself a little piece of Heaven.
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup flour
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, room temp
2 teas vanilla or seeds scraped from 1 vanlla bean
1 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
Preheat oven to 325.Butter a 2 qt baking dish; set aside. Sift together the cocoa and flour in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Using mixer, beat sugar and eggs on medium-high until very pale and light yellow, 5-10 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and add the vanilla bean seeds (or vanilla) and the cocoa mixture, mixing just until combined. Still on low, slowly pour in the melted butter, mixing just until blended.
Scrape the mixture into the prepared baking dish and place in a larger baking dish. Add enough hot tap water to come halfway up the sides of the dish with mixture in it. Bake for 1 hour , at which point a tester inserted 2″ from the side of the pan will come out with some moist crumbs still attached and the center will appear underbaked. Remove the brownie baking dish from the larger pan and place on a wire rack to cool. Serve at room temp or slightly warm with ice cream or whipped topping. Leftovers should be stored, covered, in fridge. (Up to 3 days)
