1 pound of unsalted butter
1/2 pound unsweetened chocolate
4 cups sugar
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
Melt the butter and the chocolate in a pan, but be careful not to scorch.
Add the mixture to the sugar, all by hand. Add 2 cups flour, mix.
Add four eggs. Mix. Add the remaining cup of flour and mix well.
Add the remaining four eggs and the 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
Mix well by hand until well incorporated. Pour into a greased 11-by-17-inch pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Check often; do not overcook, so they don’t get too cakey.
