I have something in my pocket that belongs inside my face...

I posted this as a response to a call for brownie recipes in the LiveJournal Cooking community, but it occurred to me that a) you might like to read it too and b) (and possibly more importantly) the front page of my blog was starting to get empty. So here you are:

srah's favorite brownie recipe

1½ stick butter
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
1 cup flour

Melt butter and chocolate together in a saucepan, remove from heat. Stir in sugar, then eggs, then vanilla, then dry ingredients. Grease 9x13" pan on the bottom only, pour mixture in. Bake for 25 minutes at 350°.

Sometimes I make the brownies plain, and sometimes I make raspberry jam brownies. I put half of the batter in the greased-bottom pan and spread it out flat. Then I melt some seedless raspberry jam (I usually start with 2-3 tablespoons, then add more because it turns out that wasn't enough - sorry I don't have a good measurement!) in the microwave, 15 seconds at a time till it's a pretty even, spreadable consistency. I pour/spread the jam over the brownie batter, then spread the rest of the brownie batter over the top of it and bake using the same directions as above.

These are usually nice and chewy, which is the way I likes 'em. Now I want some brownies...
