I have never made them. They are something I have never craved, but seem to enjoy when one is placed on a napkin and in the palm of my hand. The last few days I have thought about brownies...warm ones, melt in your mouth, chocolaty brownies. So after our bitter walk dropping Charley off to school I decided to try my hand at homemade brownies. And having Henry as my baking assistant is never a bad choice. He is becoming a little baker.
The recipe I found advertises it as being a ONE BOWL BROWNIE! And it was! Wonderful!
One Bowl Brownies!
2 whole eggs
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup flour
4 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla (oops I forgot this, I just realized)
1/2 cup nuts ( I don't like nuts in my brownies so I opted out)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Mix the brownie ingredients.
Grease an 8x8 pan (or double the recipe to fit a 9x13 pan)
Pour batter into the greased pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
I opted to double the recipe because, well being pregnant I knew I would indulge every time I walked by the pan. And an 8 x 8 would be super obvious to my husband and boys if I happen to nibble more than my share. But hey, I am eating for two and it is time to start enjoying the eating part of this pregnancy.
They turned out WONDERFUL! I will search no farther for a brownie recipe. This is it, with or without the vanilla!
So blustery mornings are meant for brownies. Really, they are!
