Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 8 Ounces semisweet chocolate
  • ¼ Cup vegetable oil
  • ½ Cup sugar
  • ¼ Cup dried plum purée
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅓ Cup all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ Cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper, leaving the paper overhanging on 2 sides; spray the paper with cooking spray.

In a large heatproof bowl, melt the chocolate with the oil over simmering water. Whisk in the sugar and dried plum purée until mixed; whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Fold in the flour and salt just until blended; fold in the walnuts. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly. Bake until a fork or toothpick  inserted into the brownies comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Cool in the pan at least 10 minutes; remove from the pan and cut into 2-inch squares.
