BASIC BROWNIES

Who can argue with chocolate. I just made these little gems – delicious

 

Back to Basics Brownies

1 stick butter

12 tablespoons cocoa powder

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 large eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup all-purpose flour

In a small saucepan, melt butter, cocoa and oil. Let cool. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, sugar and salt together until thick and fluffy in texture. Add in cooled chocolate mixture and flour. Pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan (or you can line it with foil that has been greased for easy clean up). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes until set. I start checking at 20 minutes. If you prefer your brownies to be more cake-like in consistency, bake in a 9 x 9-inch pan. Enjoy!

The total cost for a pan of these brownies is $2.30. You can get a box mix for cheaper – but they won’t be nearly as good! These also make a fantastic frozen treat: Let brownies cool completely in pan. Top with your favorite ice cream and freeze until hard. Cut into squares and dip in melted chocolate. Freeze until firm. Enjoy!

I made some brownies today for my son who also happens to be a certified chocoholic.  He has figured out if he does his chores without being told or grumbling, I am more likely to make some of his favorite treats!  I like this recipe because it calls for cocoa powder instead of baking chocolate – something I don’t usually have on hand.  They are chewy and moist – just a like a brownie should be.  You can add anything you want to the batter, chocolate chips, marshmallows, m& m’s, nuts, even peanut butter.  Feel free to jazz them up any way you want!  This recipe was adapted from the Joy of Cooking cookbook.
