Now. Brownies are a lost art. They are almost always made from box mixes these days. I'm trying to change that. I'm gonna show you just how easy it is to make a pan from scratch.
This is an ancient recipe, modified for my purposes.
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 8x8 square pan
Measure out your chocolate chips and set them aside. Grease brownie pan with shortening. Preheat the oven to 350 (F). Mix up the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
Mix up the wet ingredients in a measuring cup. Beat the eggs a little.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk it up until smooth, add chocolate chips and finish off with a spatula.
Park the mixture in the prepared baking pan. It won't seem like enough batter, spread it out to the edges with the spatula and throw it in the oven for about 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out mostly clean.
Take it out of the oven and let it cool for a good 5-10 minutes before serving.
Fact of the Matter: I love taking pictures of dessert.
