Beverly Nye's "rich" brownies
This recipe makes a cake-like brownie that (when completely cooled) can easily be cut into small squares. It is good to take to potlucks as it travels well, too.
Beverly Nye's Rich Chocolate Brownies
Melt 2 sticks butter and add 7 T. cocoa (I often use only 4).
Then add 2 Cups sugar and beat well (I often use 1 1/2).
1 1/2 Cups flour
Mix well. Stir in nuts if desired.
Spread in greased 9 x 12" pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 min.
(I have let the butter-cocoa mixture cool and then just added everything else to the saucepan!)
For the thin layer of frosting I used today...
1/2 stick butter at room temperature
2 cups confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa
Blend together in mixer until smooth. Add milk about a tablespoon at a time until you get the fluffy consistency you want. Be patient or you will add too much and then you have to add more sugar and then more cocoa and well, it can get to be a mess.
