Ok, get ready to throw out every other brownie recipe you have. Make room in the trash for all of those cheap, yucky boxes of brownies in your pantry. Here is the golden mother of all brownie recipes. It is THE ONLY brownie I am willing to indulge calories on!
This month’s FANTASTIC BAKE ALONG star baker, was Tami over at Tanglewood Knots, She asked us to make our favorite chocolate recipes. SWEET! I knew right away which recipe I would share.
Many years ago, our good friends and neighbors, the Tylers (thus the name), brought us a plate of these delicious brownies for a party we were having. Oh…my…goodness!! –They were so good that I got the recipe and have not wasted my time on any other kind since. I literally take a bite of the others and just throw them away because nothing else compares with these magnificent bites of flaky topped, moist centered, chocolate bits of heaven.
Ok, you get it. They are wonderful:) Some may say that nuts are optional, but in our family that would be a crime worth jail time!
Here is the recipe:
- • 1c butter –not margarine
- • 5 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
- • 2c sugar
- • 3 eggs
- • 2 tsp vanilla
- • 1 1/2c flour
- • *optional 1c chopped nuts
Combine butter, sugar, cocoa, and eggs. Mix until smooth. Add flour, vanilla, and nuts. The batter will be thick and light brown. Spoon into a greased 8×8 pan . They will be thick. Cook on the middle rack of a 350* oven for 40-45 min. Start checking at 35 min. They are done when a knife comes out clean but just barely clean. Do not over cook.
Yummy!! I always enjoy Fantastic Bake Along time each month. I am excited to head over and see the delicious chocolate recipes that are cooking up in the other bakers kitchens. I’m headed over to check them out. Why don’t you join me for some delicious no-calorie indulgence?!❤️❤️
