I'm on a roll here.

I've made a few batches of different variations of what I had imagined to be the Perfect Non-Weed Brownies of All Time. The recipe I'm sharing here now is the product of that yummy research. By the way, my hyperthyroid keeps me from being a huge whale (I'm more like a little whale), so unless you're a gym junkie, or suffering from an overactive thyroid condition, I would not recommend that you conduct the same experiment.

So here goes.

Materials:

Unsweetened chocolate (5 onces, chopped up)
Unsalted butter (1 cup + extra for greasing)
Eggs (5 large ones or 4 extra large eggs)
Brown sugar (2 cups)
Plain white flour (2 cups + extra for dusting the baking pan)
Walnuts (1.5 cups, chopped, separated into 1 cup and .5 cup portions)

Tools:
Double boiler (or if you're McGuyver, a pot fitted with a mixing bowl resting on the rim)
Baking pan (a 9-inch square one or its equivalent, greased with butter and dusted with flour)
Whisk
Spatula
Mixing bowl  (or, plus one more if you're using the McGuyver double boiler)
Knife
Chopping board
Oven (pre-heated to 165 C or 325 F)

Method:

In the double boiler, melt the butter and the chocolate, stirring occasionally. When it's all melted and tempting, set it aside to cool.

Tip: Make sure that the water in the double boiler does not touch the bottom of the second pan where the chocolate and butter are.

In the mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and the sugar until it's fluffy. If you're using an electric mixer, do it on medium speed for about 10 minutes. Or, if you're using a regular whisk, do it for about 15 minutes (or until your arm gives out). Fold the chocolate / butter mixture into the egg / sugar mixture with a spatula. Then sift the flour into the mixture. Mix until well-blended (but don't over mix it, you don't want a tough brownie). Then mix in 1 cup of the chopped walnuts.

Pour into the prepared baking pan then sprinkle the top with the rest of the walnuts.

Bake for 45 minutes. The remove from the oven. While still in the pan, cut the brownie into your desired serving size. Then put it back into the oven for another 10 mins.

Cool the brownie. Brew a pot of black tea with milk, get a few servings of this little baby, then make yourself feel better about being alone at home on a Friday night.
