Tasty Tuesdays: Irresistibly Fudgy Brownies

Do you remember when I told you Sundays put me in a baking mood? Well this past Sunday was no exception. The boy & I decided to whip up some brownies using a recipe he had taken from what he thinks was his mother's old church cookbook. Why are they irresistible? Because I eat four yesterday & four Sunday and there are currently 2 left. Woops? Wanna know how you too can eat a half pan of brownies? Check it out:

Irresistibly Fudgy Brownies
Taken from an unnamed family cookbook
*Serves 10 people with self-control. Otherwise, serves 2.

Preheat your oven to 350.

Mix dry ingredients:

1 1/3 c. flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1c cocoa

Look at those big, strong arms!

Mix wet ingredients:
4 eggs
1c. melted butter
2 c. white sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine the wet with the dry, pour into a greased 9x13" pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out nearly clean.

Now I don't know why I started doing this, but I think this is how my mom used to serve brownies... with applesauce! The tartness of the apples cuts the sweetness a bit and makes it a taste explosion in your mouth! Haha.


But if you're more into the frosting (like D is) here is the matched frosting.

Mix 3 tbsp melted butter, 1/4 c. cocoa, 1/4 c. milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla & 2 c. sifted icing sugar. Frost only once brownies are cooled.
These brownies are absolutely perfect. The top crisps up and crackles like it should and the middle is soft and chewy. If chocolate fudge and chocolate cake had a baby, it would be these brownies. No joke. They're easy to make and you probably already have everything you need to make them. So unless you're on a diet or your gluten free or some shit, you should do them up. I promise it'll be worth it. Do it for your tastebuds, not for your ass hips.
