This recipe is an heirloom. My grandmother makes these brownies, my mom makes these brownies and now I make these brownies. They are amazing.
Any time we have any sort of event which we are obliged to bring food to, we made these brownies. They are so so easy and quick, and can be spiced up with some sprinkles and look quite festive. They are suitable for any occasion (provided that you have many colors of sprinkles). They are faster and cheaper than store-bought or box mix brownies, and taking the 5 minutes to throw these together is well worth it.
These brownies are also legendary. At the aforementioned events, these brownies are heavily anticipated and appreciated. Please please make these. They are dangerously delicious.
I like this photo, because it displays the remains of a platter of brownies after 10 minutes of our annual neighborhood holiday party.
My favorite brownies
- 4 oz chocolate
- 1 stick of butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1.5 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Pinch of salt
- Preheat your oven to 350˚ Fahrenheit, and butter and flour your brownie pan (I use a 9×9 square).
- Melt the butter and chocolate together on low.
- Take off the heat and let cool a bit.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, then add the sugar.
- Stir in the vanilla and salt.
- Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time and mix thoroughly after each addition.
- Pour into your pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. The brownies will be done when there are small crackles on the top and a toothpick inserted into the brownies comes out with some crumbs (not liquid).
- Let cool for 10-15 minutes, cut and enjoy!
Note: As a special touch, you can also pour salted caramel on top (it proves quite delicious).
