I have a blog I love to check out called The Apron Revolution. The author started out dressing and living as if she was in 1955 and now has moved onto 1956. All of the stories have been fascinating and it has moved beyond an interesting experiment. She has even posted videos from old commercials and videos geared toward homemaking. That being said, I tried a brownie recipe of hers last night and was quite simple and good.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 TBS vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan or round pan (I used an 8” single layer cake pan to make fun cake slice servings.)
- In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes. I always ‘under cook’ brownies, because as with all foods, they continue to cook when you remove them from the oven.
Give it a try and add your own little personal twist to the recipe. Enjoy!
