1 cup flour (*high altitude)
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 cups (12oz) chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cup walnuts


You can get the high altitude flour at Walmart. It is higher in protein, and a finer grind. This was the first time I tried it, and I think it did well. I want to keep trying it in baked goods to see if it out performs bread flour.

Combine flour, baking soda, salt in a bowl and set aside. In a small sauce pan combine butter, sugar, water and bring “just to a boil.”

Then remove from heat and add 1 cup of chocolate and vanilla and stir until melted. Cool slightly! Add the eggs, one at a time and mix well. Add to dry ingredients and mix well.
