third time

I made Brownies again today.

I was soooo craving chocolate, and I’d been thinking about the fudgey luscious-ness of the last batch …. And all of a sudden I was pulling ingredients out of cupboards with no regard to the fact that I had packing to do for my upcoming camping expedition.

Just to backtrack a little, the reason I got a bee in my bonnet about brownies in the first place was because I’d started working in a new office, and one of my new … for lack of a better word, co-w0rkers … had made brownies, brought them to the office, and very generously shared them.

Those brownies were just … sublime.  They melted in my mouth.

So I was on a mission.  And I’ve tried two other brownie recipes so far ~ but now it’s time for the recipe that started it all.

And it is ridiculously easy.  Seriously.

Check it Out ~

Brownies ~ Part III

What you need:

2 cups white sugar

1 cup butter




1/2 cup cocoa powder




1 tsp vanilla extract

Smells so yummy!





4 eggs




1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt




1/2 cup walnut halves (optional)

What you do (check this!):

1.  Melt butter and mix all ingredients in the order given.

2. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes in a 9 x 13 greased pan.

** I added a bag of semi-sweet morsels.  I just can’t get enough chocolate it seems!

Told you.  So simple!  Enjoy.  I know I will! Happy Labor Day!


The verdict is in on the Brownies: Homemade Brownies II were hands down the winner.  I believe this is mostly to do with Angie’s magic baking abilities.  We shall see if I am as successful with round no. 2 of Brownies no. 2.
