Chocolate Scotch Brownies

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

5 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup butter
2-1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup oats (quick or old-fashioned)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a 2-quart saucepan, combine unsweetened baking chocolate and butter. Melt over low heat until dissolved, stirring often. Remove from heat. Add sugar and mix with a spoon until combined. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

Combine salt, baking powder, flour and oats and add to the mixture. Stir in vanilla. Spread in a greased 9x9-inch baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until the center is almost done. Test with a toothpick in middle of pan. Remove when a few crumbs still stick to the toothpick.

Let cool slightly and cut into squares. These are fudgey brownies and set up when they cool.
