I know I’m supposed to be off of sugar but this Sunday I needed to bake and not healthy baking but real sugary, not healthy by any stretch of the imagination, baking. Because my sister and her beau were coming over for dinner I was able to convince myself quite quickly that not only was it o.k to bake but that I needed to bake. Since I had been cooking all day I decided to go with a classic dessert that everyone loves and takes next to no time at all…BROWNIES! These are soooo good. Enjoy.






  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 oz semisweet bakers chocolate ( or whatever you have )
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1.5 tbl vanilla
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350. In a large saucepan melt the butter and chocolate until smooth and fully combined. Remove from heat. Gently stir in the sugar, eggs and vanilla. Now add the cocoa, flour, salt and baking powder. Mix until combined making sure not to over mix. Spread the batter into a 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 28 min or until toothpick comes out clean.


  • 6 tbl butter,softened
  • 8 tbl cocoa powder
  • 1 tbl vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • heavy cream or milk
  • Mix adding the cream/milk until smooth and the consistency desired.

*Next time I make these I will be adding nuts to the brownie mix.

Comments and positivity are always welcomed, however I am currently not accepting complaints or criticisms.
