  • 1 1/4 cups Cake Flour 5 oz.
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 6 oz. unsweetened chocolate chopped fine
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 6 pieces 1 1/2 sticks - 6 oz.
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar 15 3/4 oz.
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped 4 oz.


  • Place the oven rack in the middle position and heat the oven to 325 F degrees. Line a 13X9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Spray it with vegetable oil spray.
  • Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  • Using the bain-marie double boiler method (place a heatproof bowl over barely simmering water), melt the chocolate and butter. Stir it occasionally, until it becomes smooth.
  • Off the heat, transfer the now-melted chocolate to a large glass bowl. Whisk in the sugar into the chocolate-butter mixture in three batches. Add eggs one at a time, whisking after each addition, until they are thoroughly combined. Whisk in the vanilla extract.
  • Fold in the flour mixture in three additions, until it is completely smooth and thoroughly combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Using a spatula, spread it evenly and into the corners. Sprinkle it with walnuts.
  • Bake it for 33 to 35 minutes.
  • Cool on a wire rack for an hour before cutting it into small squares.
  • Serve it with vanilla ice cream or with a cup of cold milk.
