Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Move rack to center of oven and preheat 350° F. Spray a 9x13" baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In a microwave-safe medium-sized bowl, melt butter and chocolate on medium-high power until melted, approximately 3 minutes. Stir until smooth.
  • Mix in granulated sugar and eggs (one at a time) with a wire whisk.
  • Mix in vanilla and almond. Fold in walnuts. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt and fold into chocolate.
  • Spread batter into greased 9x13" pan and bake in preheated oven at 350°F for about 33-35 minutes (depending on your oven). Do not over-bake! A toothpick inserted into the center may have some chocolate fudge on it, but not wet batter.
  • Cool pan on wire rack for at least 15-30 minutes before removing.
