1 C butter
2 C sugar
4 tbls. cocoa
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 C chopped nuts of choice
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Grease a 9-inch square pan and dust with cocoa. In a saucepan melt the butter. Add the sugar and cocoa and blend well. Remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. These freeze well and are yummy!
Sure sounds easy and good. OK, gonna give it a try. CF
Good morning, CF -
Sure are quick and easy. If my triplets can make them......well, just about anyone can!! Hope you and your family enjoy them. Katie
Your right these are tasty and easy. I think next time I may add more chocolate. Maybe 6 tablespoon. But mighty good as made. CF
Hi, CF! Thanks for the photo - it was perfect! I asked my son, Ian, (who, by the way is going to be graduating from Le Cordon Bleu in Boston very shortly and is actually an excellent, well trained cook) what he thought about adding more chocolate to these brownies and he said you're absolutely on the right track with that - he'd thought the same thing would apply. He also suggested that using a high-grade cocoa would make a difference - something like a GOOD Dutch chocolate or perhaps something made by a name chocolatier such as Godiva, Lintz or a manufacturer of that ilk. I asked him about maybe something like Hershey's chocolate syrup and his view was that doing that would upset the balance of wet and dry ingredients in the finished product. To quote Ian, you'd be apt to get mush! I bow to his expertise.....he's much better at this sort of thing than I am!
Just for the record - if anyone else out there has any suggestions to add to this, please be forthcoming with them. Once, just once, I'd love to give my son a tip or two he hasn't already thought of!! (grin)
