    For some reason I’ve never been able to make a good brownie from scratch. They have always come out bitter. I don’t have a specific recipe because it’s been years since I’ve made from scratch brownies. I always resort to using a boxed mix.
    Does anyone have any really good brownie recipes that you can share with me?

    I haven't tried the Stella Parks recipe but I bet it would be amazing, all her stuff tends to be great.

    I tried Nigella Lawson's brownie recipe recently which was delicious (albeit without the nuts). If brownies tend to taste bitter to you, how about including something sweet to balance it out? White chocolate chips work really well.

    One of the first things I learned to bake were brownies, and the recipe I learned on is still the one I reach for when I need that taste of chocolate. Try these:

    Saucepan Brownies

    1 stick butter or margerine
    2 ounces unsweetened chocolate

    melt above in a saucepan over med-low heat. Do not burn the chocolate.

    Add to the melted chocolate mixture:
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    3/4 cup flour
    dash of salt
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

    Spread evenly in an 8" x 8" pan that has been sprayed with Pam

    Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
