Brownies can be light and cake-like, fudgy and dense, or moist and chewy ­ depending on the ratio of chocolate and butter to flour. This recipe produces a brownie that’s a happy medium between fudgy and cake-like. Reduce the baking time by 10 minutes if you prefer a more moist brownie.

An American classic, brownies are thought to have been “invented” by accident when a New England housewife forgot to add the baking powder to a chocolate cake she was making. Chocolate lovers around the world have enjoyed that result, in one form or another, for more than a century
