    Awesome Brownies

    Tried this new recipe this morning and it turned out great. Sorry no photos camera batteries are dead


    1 1/4 cups of cocoa powder
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 cup of white sugar
    1/2 cup of reg AP flour
    1/2 teaspoon of salt
    8 oz. butter melted (those packets of butter are 8 oz or 220 grams approx)
    2 teaspoons of vanilla
    4 large eggs (room temp)

    beat the four eggs until nice and yellow and well combined (they will lighten in color as they combine.)

    Gather all the dry ingredients and sift together. Slowly add the dry stuff to the eggs while beating or stirring vigorously (stand mixer makes it easier)

    Once you have a good mix add the vanilla and the butter, add the butter very slowly as it tends to pool on top if added to quickly.

    mix until its """Mixed""" lol

    Grease a 9 inch pan with shortening or spray stuff.

    Cut a sheet of parchment the width of the base of the pan and leave enough so that it hangs over the two opposite sides. You should have paper along the bottom and up the two sides and about 2 or 3 inches of extra. The spray or shortening will hold it in place.

    Fill the pan and put it in a 325 deg PREHEATED oven for approx an hour.

    Test with a toothpick, to check if its done.

    Remove from oven and grab the two pieces of paper that are hanging out and remove the brownies to a cutting board. Cut into 9 pieces while hot.

    Then move paper and all to a cooling rack.

    ENJOY!

    My wife made some awesome brownies the other day and I will pass on your recipe to her for trials.

    Thanks for posting yours mate and if your brownies are the same quality as your famous pate I am sure they were delicious.

    ^lol If I had the same 'tasters' as I did with the pate' I'm sure the outcome would be good.. lol

    Let us know how she does with the brownies

    BTW the parchment paper thing is good for anything that needs to be cut hot, all types of bars and squares

    Yum! Sounds great. I made brownies today in place of a birthday cake. Covered the cooked brownie with melted chocolate and a few chopped up strawberries, whipped cream on the side for those whoe wanted it. Super good and way cheaper than buying a decorated plastic cake at one of the department stores.

    Yum. Thanks, EG.
    As Mom's rule, I always add the liquids (in this case, the eggs) to the "well" in the dry (flour, etc) and mix up. Easier and no globs. Never used parchment for brownies or cookies -- just straight onto a wire rack for cooling.
    I think I have some dark choc so might make some.

    As I'm a lazy bastard, I don't like cleaning up cooked on gook from my pans. I use parchment just about anywhere, its cheap, doesn't burn or stick to anything and saves a load of clean up lolol.

    For those that have not used it:
    Parchment is very similar in look and feel to wax paper but no wax. Hence you don't get that waxy taste when warm or hot stuff is placed on it. Wax paper also burns very easily.

    Parchment paper is silicon impregnated, leaves no residue and will withstand all your oven temperatures.

    ^ Oh! Just reread your recipe. Yep, parch/wax paper or muffin cups work for me, too. I hate cleaning up.
