Fill a medium pot with water and bring it to a boil over medium high heat, and put the bowl with your butter, cocoa powder, and sugar overtop to create a double boiler. Melt the butter and stir frequently until the mixture is warm to the touch.

Stir in your vanilla and one by one, add in the eggs, making sure that each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next one.

Carefully fold in the flour into the mixture with a spatula.

Scrape the mixture into your prepared baking dish, and cook for approximately 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the brownies comes out clean.

Let cool for a few minutes, and then use parchment paper to help lift the brownies out of the pan. Cut and enjoy!
