choco-nut brownie

usualy every saturday afternoon i make a cake for sunday. this week's choice is a nut brownie that, i need to admit, is terribly delicious. it's fast and easy to prepare and perfect for sunday breakfast and (for who has a really sweet tooth) also for an after lunch dessert.
you will need:

- 200 g of butter
- 4 eggs
- 140 g of flour
- 200 g of sugar
- 1 g of salt
- 115 g of dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
- 5 drops of vanilla aroma
- 120 g of nuts

preheat the oven to 180°C. butter a baking pan (better if rectangular). mince the nuts with your fingers in quite big pieces. in a saucepan melt the butter and chocolate on a very small fire. add the sugar and mix slowly with a wooden spoon for about 2 minutes. the sugar doesn't need to melt completely. take away from the fire and put the mixture in another (cool) container, possibly a bowl with a spout. add eggs and mix together until the mixture is well unified. add valilla aroma and mix again for a couple of minutes. add slowly flour and nuts at the end. mix and pour in the previously buttered baking pan. bake for about 20-25 minutes.

in the morning enjoy it with a cup of delicious cafe au lait or cappuccino. in the afternoon don't hesitate to taste your nut brownie with a cup of tea.
