“f” is for fudge brownies

Feb 25, 2010 by

ever since i was a little girl i have been fascinated with chocolate and cooking.  this was one of my first “signature” recipes found in the “alpha bakery children’s cookbook” published by gold-medal flour.  i remember saving up the upc’s off the bottom of flour bags and sending them away with a check for shipping and handling.   it was a very exciting day when that cookbook arrived!

my favorite recipe from the book is below.  the recipe can easily be doubled to go in a 9×13″ pan.  (9×13″ pan = more gooey center brownies!)

  • 1/4 c margarine or butter
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 2/3 c of gold medal all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c chopped nuts, if you like
  • 1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips, if you like
  1. pre-heat oven to 350°.
  2. grease the bottom only of a 8″ square pan, with shortening.
  3. heat margarine and chocolate chips in the microwave on a low heat, stirring constantly until melted.
  4. stir in remaining ingredients with a wooden spoon until smooth.
  5. stir in nuts and chocolate chips (optional).  i find that the brownies are too rich with the additional chocolate chips and nuts are a taste preference.  the brownies are good if they are boy ones or girl ones.  haha, mom! 🙂
  6. spread in pan with a rubber spatula.
  7. bake until center is set, about 30 min.  store brownies in a tightly covered container.
