Servings 1 dozen


  • 6 ounces good quality 70% cocoa bittersweet chocolate; chopped
  • ½ cup mild-flavored extra virgin olive oil or other vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ - ¾ cup toasted chopped walnuts optional


  • Heat the oven to 350° F. Line an 8 x 8 glass baking dish with aluminum foil. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the olive oil and chocolate; cook over medium-low heat, whisk vigorously, until combined and smooth. Remove from heat and bring to room temperature.
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, cocoa, vanilla, and salt; mix on medium-low until well combined. Add the cooled chocolate and mix well; add the flour and stir until no white streaks remain. Add nuts, if using, and stir well into the batter.
  • Transfer the batter to the baking dish and bake about 25 -30 minutes, or until a tester, inserted in the middle, comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool completely before cutting.
