      1/2  cup           bleached all-purpose flour
    2                    eggs
    1      pinch         salt
    1      tablespoon    dark rum
      1/4  cup           sugar
      1/2  cup           dark corn syrup
    3      ounces        bittersweet or semisweet chocolate -- finely

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees and set a rack at the middle level. Butter
 an 8-inch square pan, and line the bottom with a square of parchment
 or waxed paper.
 
 Combine the walnuts and flour and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk
 the eggs with salt and rum.
 
 In a saucepan, stir the sugar and corn syrup well to mix. Place over
 low heat and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the
 chocolate and butter. Allow to stand for 3 or 4 minutes, then whisk
 smooth. Whisk the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. Stir in the
 walnuts and flour.
 
 Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 35 minutes,
 until set and firm.
 
 Cool in the pan on a rack. Unmold and cut into 2-inch squares.
