Delicious Brownies

This brownie recipe was THE recipe I made while I was growing up. It came from my grandmother, and I think my mom made these when she was growing up, too. I started making a different brownie recipe for a few years, but I was re-introduced to these brownies a few months ago, and wondered why I ever strayed.

I like to hide whole wheat flour in my brownies...the chocolate color hides it well and I don't think it diminishes the flavor or texture.

And yes, the recipe name is "Delicious Brownies" I don't know why it's named that way, but they sure are delicious! I am also sharing these at Mouthwatering Mondays, go take a look at the yummy recipes over there!

Delicious Brownies

2 cups sugar
1 cup melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup baking cocoa
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Mix sugar and cocoa together, stir in butter. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat well. Sift flour and salt together, stir into mixture. Fold in walnuts in using. Pour into greased jelly roll pan.(I used a 9 x 13 pan - they were a little thicker) Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the brownies.

  1. YUM! I love, love, love brownies and I adore whole grain pastas and whole wheat flours! YAY!

    I'm going to HAVE to try these especially, since you put walnuts in them! nom.. have you ever added dried cranberries to the batter? I love doing that!
