Best Brownie Recipe

Brownies are just one of those things we need to know how to make.  Let’s face it, certain days can be greatly improved on by the smell of a batch of brownies wafting from the oven.

I have several recipes that are easy to make and great-tasting, but I found one of my favorites in a 1969 South Carolina Cuisine cook book I bought at a used book sale in college.  Those Junior Assembly ladies in Anderson, South Carolina knew how to make a brownie.  Here’s the best brownie recipe I have found:

Fudge Brownies

2 ounces bitter chocolate(recommend using a very good quality baking chocolate)

1/2 stick butter

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup flour

1 cup nuts(or not)

Melt chocolate and butter.  Add sugar, flour and salt.  Beat well.  Add eggs, vanilla and nuts.  Bake in a Pyrex dish 25 minutes in 350 degree oven until firm, but still moist.  Yields 24.
