The Original Palmer House Brownies

Palmer House BrowniesThe Original Palmer House Brownies Recipe

1 pound semi-sweet chocolate
1 pound butter (4 sticks)
1 pound sugar (3 1/2 cups)
8 ounces cake flour (2 cups)
1 tablespoon baking powder
4 eggs
1 pound crushed walnuts (3 1/2 cups)

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/2 teaspoon unflavored gelatin


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Melt the chocolate and the butter together in a double boiler.  (If you don’t have a double boiler, use a stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water.)

Mix in the sugar, flour, and baking powder until well mixed.  Now add the eggs and mix until well mixed.

Pour mixture into greased 9 x 13 pan.

Sprinkle with walnuts and bake for 40 minutes.  (Edges will become slightly crispy, and a toothpick in the center may not come out clean; it should be slightly gooey.)

Let cool 30 minutes.

Mix glaze ingredients in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil for two minutes.  While hot, spread a thin layer of glaze onto the brownies with a pastry brush.

At this point, you may wish to refrigerate or freeze them; it makes them easier to cut.

Makes approximately 24 Original Palmer House Brownies.
