“I LOVE baking, but my problem is I make a big recipe & then I get sick of it before it is all eaten. So I bought a small-batch baking book! THe recipes are great & they make just enough for one or two to enjoy. That way you can try lots more recipes! this is one of these great small batch recipes. Enjoy!”
3 brownies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly grease a 5 x 3-inch loaf pan. Line the bottom of pan with a strip of tin foil to fit down the length & up the short sides with enough extra length to extend over the edges by 1 1/2". Lightly grease foil and set pan aside.
  3. Place butter & chocolate in a medium microwaveable bowl. Microwave on medium power until chocolate is soft & butter is melted, about 1 minute. Stir until chocolate is smooth. Add sugar & whisk well.
  4. Then add egg white & vanilla. Whisk until blended.
  5. Add the flour and salt. Whisk well. Fold in pecans.
  6. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.
  7. Bake until toothpick inserted in centre comes out with moist crumbs, 28-30 minutes; the top will be dry and starting to shrink from edges of pan. Do not overcook.
  8. Remove from oven and place on wire rack. Let brownie cool completely in the pan. Use edges of foil to lift the brownies out of the pan.
