I had a square brownie tin sitting in the cupboard for quite some time now and it was about time that it got used. We went grocery shopping before I really looked at any recipes. I only got cocao powder and no chocolate bars. Most of the recipes I found online used cocoa and chocolate bars, but I was lucky enough to find this recipe: http://www.cacaoweb.net/brownies3.html.
This is my first making brownies without using a mix and I will never go back to buying brownie mix ever. These came out perfect. I followed the recipe using the self raising flour option. The eggs I used were pretty big and I feared the mixture was too runny, but this wasn’t a problem at all. The amount of sugar might seem large, but these weren’t overly sweet. Because of our gasoven I did leave it in much longer and placed the tin on the highest shelf. You’ll have to experiment with your oven and check your brownie a couple of times after the first 20 minutes.
I added pecans, I still have loads left from making pecan pie. Never buy brownies or brownie mix again. Go for this recipe!
