Cuisine: American
Serves: 24 brownies
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • ⅔ cups cocoa

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and grease and flour a 9 x 13" pan, (I use Baker's Joy)
  2. Cream sugar and butter, add eggs, and vanilla mixing well.
  3. Add flour and cocoa and mix well.
  4. Add nuts if desired.
  5. Spread into prepared pan and place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Cool on a wire rack and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar if desired.
Be sure to use a toothpick to check for doneness. Oven temps vary and mine take 35 minutes.

Frankie always adds a thick layer of chocolate frosting!
