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
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.
