NOTES for Chelsea
1. Be careful not to add the eggs while the butter and chocolate are warm. I would add the sugar and vanilla and mix then add the egg when it is relatively cool.
2. 10 minutes is a big window when baking. Start testing the batter with a toothpick at 20 minutes. If batter is still wet cook another 2 minutes and test again. Let me know the amount of time for your oven and I will update the recipe.
