No Valentines? Don’t Whine – Make Brownies

Moist Brownies


¾ cup sifted cake flour

½ tsp of baking powder

1/3 cup of butter

2 squares of Baker’s Chocolate, melted

1 cup of sugar

2 eggs, well beaten

1 tsp vanilla

½ cup nuts


Sift flour, measure, add baking powder and sift twice more. Melt butter and chocolate together. Combine eggs and sugar; add chocolate mixture; beat thoroughly; then add flour, vanilla and nuts. Pour into greased baking pan and bake at 350˚ for 35 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut in squares. (Serve with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce, if you are feeling really sinful!) if your feeling less baaad, have a nice glass of milk with them.

This recipe is from a cookbook I found at an estate sale in 1995. From time to time I try some of the recipes and share them.

My search for a really great Brownie recipe continues. Anyone have a great recipe they would like to share?

Recipe from: Mrs. Lawrence Carlson
