My Mama’s Brownies


This is probably my favorite recipe, My Mama’s Brownies. It is very easy and uncomplicated. Mama actually ices her brownies with a delicious chocolate icing!

June’s Brownies
   (one well oiled baking pan)
2 cups of sugar
1½ cups of flour
1 teaspoon of salt
½ cup of cocoa

Measure these 4 dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir them until mixed.

4 eggs
1 cup of corn oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Break the eggs, add the oil and vanilla on top, and mix it with an electric mixer for about 60 seconds, moving the mixer until everything is combined but no longer than necessary. The batter will be thick. Take a spatula or spoon and push the mixture out into your oiled pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the brownies puff up and begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. This could take a little less than 20 minutes or more than 25 depending upon your oven. As soon as you take the brownies out, cut them and go around the edge of your pan to loosen them. The brownies should be chewy, and they are parve. They can be eaten with milk or meat.
