Soft butter, for greasing pan

Flour, for dusting the battered pan

4 large eggs                                                      1 cup sugar, sifted

1 cup brown sugar, sifted                               8 oz. melted butter

1 ¼ cups cocoa, sifted                                     2 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup flour, sifted                                              ½ tsp kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Butter and flour and 8-inch square pan.

In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs at medium speed until fluffy and light yellow. Add both sugars. Add remaining ingredients, and mix to combine.

Pour the batter into a greased and floured 8-inch square pan and bake for 45 minutes. Check for doneness with the tried-and-true toothpick method: a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan should come out clean. When it’s done, remove to a rack to cool. Resist the temptation to cut into it until it’s mostly cool.
