As part of a group presentation I'm involved in today, I have baked (or am in the process of baking, to be entirely accurate) a pan of brownies. I have not baked brownies in a very, very long time, and I'm trying to remember if they look the way they should look. I think so. My mother used to make these brownies for every occasion where sweets might be required and they are rich and delicious like no other brownie I have ever eaten.
From Edna Staebler's Food That Really Schmecks:
Mix ingredients in the order given.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup flour
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes in a greased cake pan.
Simple, right? It occurs to me that I forgot the salt, as I'm writing that down. Well. I guess they'll be that pinch more heart healthy. Heh.
