Preheat your oven to 350° and grease and line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt and set off to the side.
Roughly chop the chocolate into chunks and add it along with the butter into a medium sauce pan. Heat over low heat, stirring often until all the chocolate is melted. Remove off of the heat and let it cool slightly.
Next, whisk in the sugar to the chocolate mixture and then add in one egg at a time, whisking after each additional egg. The batter should thicken significantly because of the eggs.
Lastly add in the vanilla.
Pour the chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients and, using a rubber spatula, combine just until the flour gets incorporated.
Next pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spread out evenly with an offset spatula and bake on the middle rack of your preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a tester comes out with only a few crumbs attached. Bake for less time for a more fudgy brownie.
