1 cup flour
2 cups sugar
300g unsweetened chocolate
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups whipped cream

2 Add the sugar to the melted butter and mix well. Add the eggs one at a time, beating by hand between each egg. Add the vanilla and melted chocolate.
3 Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. Incorporate  the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture.
4 Pour the batter into a greased 13 x 9 pan (or if you like thick, fudgier brownies, use an 8×8 pan).
