You may be suffering from diabetes, and cannot handle as much sugar, or it may be one of those times when the only safe thing to say to your wife is "have some chocolate." Fear not, your host is here to help you; recipe adapted slightly from a "fudge like brownie" recipe from The Nebraska Cookbook. (which inexplicably does NOT have any good recipes for Ralphie. Sorry Mark!)
2 sticks butter
4 squares Baker's unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar
3 tbsp Hershey's special dark cocoa
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (substitute white flour if necessary)
1/2 cup nuts (if desired)
1 tbsp vanilla
Melt butter & Baker's chocolate in saucepan. Remove from heat, add sugar and stir until mixed. Add well-beaten eggs and cocoa, stir again, and then add flour and chocolate. Bake in well seasoned, buttered 10" cast iron skillet for 25 minutes, or until knife comes out clean, at 350F.
Enjoy, optimally with vanilla ice cream. Relish the healthy treat of lots of flavenoids and whole wheat baking!
