These were good. I ate two.
Okay, I ate three.
This is a recipe I’ve had for a while. It took hardly any time at all to mix up and was a little unusual in its method, in that the batter isn’t stirred until all the ingredients are added:
It’s all dumped in the pan…
And after baking and cooling, you get these:
Perfect for taking to a party, which is what these were for. Especially if they were a bit thicker, and they would be if you used the correct pan size. I only had a 9×9.
I apologize for any slight blurriness you notice in the photos. I’m learning my way around closeup photography and I have to figure out how to get my camera to cooperate.
All in all, I’d say this was a 4 out of 5. Taste is good, ease of preparation is definitely a plus, and I like that it calls for cocoa powder and chocolate chips, rather than baking chocolate, since I don’t always keep that around. They are good basic brownies.
Jenny’s Brownies (Original recipe here)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder (I used dark/dutch process)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/8 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 square pan.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and cocoa powder, stirring frequently. Stir in chocolate chips and remove from heat.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Add sugar, flour, and salt, but do not stir yet. Pour chocolate mixture over all, and stir everything together.
Pour batter into pan and bake for 25-30 min. or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before cutting.
