Rosie stuffed this hand written recipe card into a healthy eating cookbook she gifted me as a wedding present twenty four years ago,”For when you’re not counting calories”. Apparently marriage seriously distracted me from calorie counting, cause I bet I’ve baked a bazillion batches of these fudge like brownies! All five of my children can stir these up by heart as well- they enjoyed introducing new friends all around the world to Wedding Present Brownies. This is my favorite brownie recipe because it uses simple ingredients, whips up in under 5 minutes and only uses one pan. You will never need a mix again!!!
- Melt together on low heat
- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup cocoa
- 2 cups sugar
- Add and beat in:
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Stir in gently
- 1 1/3 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Spread batter in a greased 9×11 or 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes
- We usually add 1 cup of chocolate chips. other popular additions are pecans and coconut.
