Happy Memorial Day! I couldn’t be more grateful for the many men and women who have lost their lives and give of their time and talents to serving our country. I am grateful every day to be an American and feel so proud and blessed to live in this great nation. Every aspect of our lives are blessed because of the freedom’s we enjoy in the United States. We couldn’t have that without all of the brave men and women who serve and sacrifice for our country. A HUGE thank you to each of you who serve our country!
And what is more American than a a chewy, chocolaty, homemade brownie?! I have blogged about this recipe before, but wanted to share it with all of you in case you have forgotten about it in the deep, dark, archives of this blog 😉 You will not find a better brownie recipe out there! This recipe is a no fail, easy to make, one pan wonder of a recipe that can’t be beat! Hope you love them as much as we have the past 18 years 😉
- 4 sticks butter, room temperature
- 4 cup white sugar
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 8 eggs
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3 1/2 cup flour
- 1 Tbs. vanilla
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl add the butter. With an electric mixer, beat the butter until soft and smooth. Add the cups of sugar to the butter and continue to mix until all combined and white and fluffy. Add the cocoa powder and continue to mix until smooth. Add the eggs, salt and vanilla and continue to beat until the eggs are incorporated. Add the flour one cup at a time. Mix until combined. Spray a cookie jelly-roll pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the batter into the pan and level with a knife until smooth in the pan. Bake for 28-30 minutes, or until the center of the brownie seems stiff and no longer soft. However, you don't want to over bake the brownies! As they sit for a couple hours, they will harden and become the perfect, chewy texture. When they are finished baking, remove them from the oven and let them rest until ready to serve or frost. You can sprinkle them with powdered sugar, or top with a Buttercream Chocolate Frosting. Mint frosting is also great!
