Double Chocolate Brownies

Bertha Palmer, an American Socialite requested a chef in the Palmer house Hotel in Chicago to create a dessert that is less cakey and can be eaten straight from a lunch box (Source:Wikipedia).That is how brownies were created and the first brownies had Walnuts and Apricot Glaze in them.These are still being served in the Hotel based on the original recipe.
Chocolate Brownies are simple to make. One can always have variations tot he chocolate brownie by mixing things up. My favorite has to be the simple and the basic brownie.

Recipe:Joy of Baking

5oz semisweet chocolate chopped
1 stick(1/2 cup) unsalted butter
2 tbsps cocoa powder
1 cup fine sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
