Schoolhouse Brownies

These are our favorite house brownies. Clara can usually be talked into making them to share with our Wednesday night Bible study. They can be made dairy-free, which is a plus--just take care to use dairy-free margarine and baking chocolate (hard to find).

*Schoolhouse Brownies*

Melt over low heat:

3/4 c. butter
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate

Stir together and set aside to cool.

In electric mixer bowl, beat until light and creamy, maybe 5-8 minutes:

4 eggs
1/2 t. salt
2 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla

Gently blend in the cooled chocolate, and, with a wooden spoon just til combined:

1 c. flour
2 c. chocolate chips

Pour into Pam'ed 13 x 9 pan and bake for about 30 minutes at 350. I check for doneness with a toothpick but am willing to underbake a smidgen--makes them moist and good. Possibly the best brownies of all time.

These sound yummy - I think I might have to try making them this week.

My little one came a cropper off his bike and has a very swollen face and mouth. He can't eat anything except tiny bites of soft food. Tonight he had half inch squares of bread and jam, apple juice through a straw and some rice with pumpkin mashed into it.

We spent most of the day at the hospital - he had TWO CT scans because he's seeing double - eek! It seems that it's an eye injury not a brain injury, so they let us go home until tomorrow when the eye department opens.

So I think there's one little warrior who is going to need some pampering over the week... Soft sweet brownies sound like a good start.

We love your Coffee Cake recipe although in Australia it would be called an Apple Teacake. I am going to try it with tinned peaches this morning and put mixed spice instead of cinnamon in the streusel topping.

Best wishes

These are so good! My sister and sister-in-law both said that they were the best brownies they ever had.
