These are a classic. This is the quick dessert my mom always makes when a crowd is coming. It is comfort food for all of us adults when we get together and remember good times with mom. It is a simple recipe and requires no frosting. That was the rule as children. NO FROSTING. Now we can't think of putting the stuff on it now. They are perfect the way they are.
Here is a photo of one that Hannah did frost :o) after doing her self portrait. It looks like mustard on top.
(yes I let her break our hard fast rule)
Grandma Wood's Brownies
In a Mixer beat well:
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
Sift, add, and mix well:
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tap baking powder
1/3 cup cocoa powder
(you can use 2 squares baker's chocolate instead of the cocoa powder - if you do, melt it with the butter)
1 cup chopped walnuts (in really big pieces)
Pour into a buttered 9x13 cake pan. Bake at 350*F for 20 minutes or until done. (you can tell they are done if you touch the center and it springs back)
These are great served warm with vanilla ice cream. They are best after they are cooled off served with a glass of cold milk.
