2 Squares unsweetened chocolate (I usually just use Baker's)
1/3 cup butter (I usually use Tillamook or Land O Lakes)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional) I don't like nuts in my brownies so I leave this out
Semi-sweet chocolate chips as desired (I use Ghiradelli because it uses real vanilla as opposed to artificial vanillin)
Conventional oven - Preheat to 350 degrees
Melt chocolate and butter.
Beat eggs, beat in sugar; add chocolate mixture and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; blend into above mixture; stir in nuts and chocolate chips if desired. Turn batter into greased 8"x8" pan and bake for 25 minutes; cool before cutting.
For brownie waffles I added close to a tablespoon of oil maybe a little less and about a tablespoon of water to make the batter not as thick and easier to spread in the waffle maker, follow your waffle maker's instructions, waffle maker may need to be oiled, pour the same amount of brownie batter as you would waffle batter onto waffle maker (mine is about 2/3 cup), close waffle maker and cook for just a little less time than waffles. I usually have to let it cool a little before being able to take them out without crumbling. And voila you have brownie waffles. I did not do this but you might like to sprinkle some powdered sugar over them.
