Baker's Review Wednesday 3: Fudge Brownies

Sorry about no Baker's Review Wednesday last week . . . . I was just busy and we were getting meals and snacks since mom had her baby . . . we still are (thanks all you wonderful people who brought us meals . . . they were all DELICIOUS!!!).

Monday night I made these delicious fudge brownies.  I was planning on making cookie brownie bars, but we didn't have much of either butter or margarine, so I couldn't make the cookie dough part:(  Oh, well, I'll have to make them another time.

So no pictures of the whole process this time, just the recipe and pictures of the brownies:)  (Did you know scrapbook paper makes good backgrounds for taking pictures?).

These brownies are the best brownies ever . . . definitely better than out of a box, and these are the ones I make when I want brownies!  So here goes:


3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 2/3 cup sugar
5 eggs
1 1/3 cup flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
2/3 tsp. salt
1 1/3 tsp. vanilla

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs.  Combine flour, cocoa, and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well.  Stir in vanilla.  Spread into greased 9"x13" baking pan.  Bake at 325 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until brownies test done.

So these are simple to make and once they're out of the oven and have cooled down a bit, you got yourself some delicious brownies!!

*Note: Recipe originally for 15x10x1 inch pan, we made the measurments of ingredients fit for a 9x13 pan.  Recipe from my aunt Nancy Gilkerson.*

So go and whip up a batch of these yummy brownies!

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
