My friend and mentor when I was a young woman gave me this recipe. It is likely 30 years old!
This is the sign of a great recipe!
I wrote out the recipe so you could read it and added my tips on making them.
The Best Fudgy Brownies Ever!
¾ cup good baking cocoa
1 cup (minus 1 TBS and 1 tsp) of coconut oil
2 cups of sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ cup of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease a 9x13 pan.
Melt coconut oil and remove from heat. Add cocoa powder, stir until well mixed. Add sugar, mix well. Add eggs, and again mix well. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix well. Stir in nuts if using. Pour into the baking pan and cook for 30 minutes or until brownies start to pull away from the side of the pan. Do not over bake!!!
I melt my coconut oil on the stove in a pan and then mix everything else into it. If you used a bowl in the microwave you can do the same thing. I like that you don't have to use a bunch of pans or bowls.
Let me know if you make them!
