"My Mom Makes the Best Brownies!"

Home | Recipes | -


  • 2 c Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 c Cocoa
  • 2 ts Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 c Butter
  • 1 1/2 c Flour; use pre-sifted
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 3/4 c Chopped walnuts; optional, up to 1
  • Shortening; or pam spray to grease pan


Preheat oven to 350 F. Smear a 9 x 13-inch pan (preferably an aluminum pan) with shortening or Pam Spray.
Melt butter in microwave or over low heat. In a mixing bowl, stir cocoa and sugar together. Then stir in the melted butter.
Add the beaten eggs and vanilla and stir again until smooth. Now, add the flour and salt and mix just until blended. Don't over-mix! This is a chewy brownie - not a cake brownie.
Add the chopped nuts at this time. Scrape mixture into a greased pan spread out in an even layer, making sure your corners are filled well.
Bake in oven until the brownies just begin to pull away from the sides and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. (25 to 30 minutes.)
Let cool before cutting
This baked product freezes very well, if not iced. Do not cut into squares if you are going to freeze now and enjoy later.
