Ingredients

  •   10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter
  •   1 1/4 cups sugar
  •   3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (natural or Dutch-process)
  •   1/4 teaspoon salt
  •   1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  •   2 cold large eggs
  •   1/2 cup all-purpose flour (unsifted, measured by stirring briefly, spooning into the measuring cup until it's heaped above the rim, then leveling it with a straight-edged knife or spatula -- it should weigh nearly 2.5 ounces)
