Grease a square baking pan (8x8x2″) and preheat oven to 350º.
Crack eggs into a medium sized bowl and beat with a fork. Add sugar and beat until well blended. Set aside while you melt the chocolate and butter, let cool a little and add them to the egg mixture. (Melt the chocolate in a double boiler – small pan set in a larger pan of boiling water or in the microwave. If you use the microwave, watch carefully so it doesn’t burn.) Blend in the flour, then add the vanilla. Spread into the greased pan and back for 25-35 minutes, until set in the middle. Let cool before cutting into 9 squares.
* substitute: 1 square baking chocolate = 1 T oil + 3 T unsweetened baking cocoa
