Lunch Lady Brownies
- 1 cup of Butter (I use unsalted)
- 1/2 cup of Cocoa
- 2 cups of All Purpose Flour
- 2 cups of Sugar
- 4 Eggs
- 4 teaspoons of Vanilla
- 1 cup of Chopped Nuts (optional)
I melt the Butter in the microwave and put into my mixing bowl, then I add cocoa and mix together until smooth.
Add flour, and sugar. Beat together and then add eggs, vanilla, and nuts. Mix until combined. Do not over stir.
Pour into greased, floured 9x13 baking pan*.
( * An additional part of this recipe said that if you want to double the recipe, use a large baking sheet. )
Additional Note * This batter will not be runny like a cake mix. You might have to spread it out over your pan with a rubber spatula.
Bake 20-25 minutes @350 F or until done. I would check at it at 20 minutes.
Wait only about 10 minutes to frost brownies.
Frost them while they are warm (not hot).
