wednesday; what we baked

i dont know about you, but ive never been a huge fan of brownies.
which is weird.
because i love chocolate and i love baked goods, why not combined?
to me, brownies from a box have always been blah.
tasting of fake chocolate and syrupy sweet- and i dont like them warm!
so when i was thinking of something simple to make for when my in laws came over, i thought brownies would be good...
and i was right.
i stumbled upon some grey sea salt brownies, adjusted them (as usual) to what i had and to my taste and they were. so. good.

grey sea salt brownies
adapted from this recipe

1 1/2 sticks butter
4 oz dark baking chocolate  (i like ghiradelli)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup unbleached flour
1/3 dark cocoa powder
1/4 tsp grey sea salt, 1/4 sea salt for sprinkling

preheat your oven to 350.
melt butter and chocolate together, setting aside to cool after melted.
in a stand up mixer with whisk attached add the chocolate/butter mixture to sugar and vanilla.
beat on low and add eggs, one a time until combined.
in a separate bowl, combine cocoa, flour and sea salt.
slowly add dry ingredients to chocolate batter.
the batter will be thick!
pour in to a butter non stick, or a parchment lined glass pan and bake for 22-24 minutes.
as soon as you remove from the over, lightly sprinkle the grey (or pink or maldon)
sea salt on top. 
allow to cool, cut and serve.
and you know what i like to serve it with! :)
