6 ingredients
18 servings
When I first learned to cook... (more than 50 years ago!) my mother wrote out a recipe for Brownies on the back inside cover of her cookbook "All About Home Baking" copyright 1933. On the inside cover, she wrote, "To Barbara with loving memories, Mother. August 4, 1974. The one recipe for brownies contained in the book is not the one she wrote on the back. It begins: 1.Utensils 2.Ingredients 3.Light oven 4.Grease pan 5.Start I even wrote the specific utensils in the corner. Ahhh... I love these memories. The brownies are very light, and fudge-like, and the best I have ever had. I could not find a recipe like it here.
