Fudge Brownies

Post by ConsrvYank1 » Mon May 31, 2010 4:37 am

This is very simple and quick to make.

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), 2 squares (2 oz.) unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla, 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8 x 8 x 2 square pan. Mine is glass. Melt butter and chocolate on low heat in sauce pan on stove. Remove from heat, stir in sugar and add eggs, vanilla: beat lightly just til combined (don't overbeat.)Stir in flour and nuts. Spread batter in pan. You can add whole or half walnuts on top (I don't do this). Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. I bake mine for only 28 minutes. Every stove is different.

Enjoy!

Very easy, and if you have a sudden urge for something quick, and are lazy like me, and don't want to go to the store, this is it. Certainley nothing gourmet about it.

I remember years ago when I worked at Compusa, there was a resturant called, "Viva La Pasta", run by two Jewish ladies who loved Italian food, and their baker made these wonderful chocolate brownies with a mint frosting. They hated to see him go, but he qit that job to take another position at a Pickerman's Pantry. Ironiclly, I worked at the ORIGINAL Pickerman's in Waterloo, IA, in the late 1970's before it closed down and later was re-organized and became a small fanchise. Oh, the original Pickerman's had the absolute best macaroons! They had no white sugar in them and Mom used to buy several dozen of them at a time. Our summertime treat was a plate of those gooey macaroons and bing cherries! :stars: :arms:

And unfortunately, neither Compusa or Viva La Pasta exist anymore! :noparty:

I think that Elmer (Our baker) used molasses instead. He guarded his recipie very carefully. After Pickerman's closed down, he went to work at a nearby bakery that was within walking distance of our house. It was just by total fluke that I found out where Elmer had landed after Pickerman's closed up. As soon as Mom found out, she made regular trips there! :thumbsup:

Oh, that would make them gooey and richer tasting, I'm sure! I think it would be very good! I will sit down and do some recipe research and see what I can find! Good stuff, I'm sure! :)

Okay, here's the first test recipe!

Coconut Macaroons
3 large egg whites (90 grams) (3 ounces), at room temperature
1/2 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
¾ cup molasses
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (60 grams) cake flour, sifted
3 cups (300 grams) sweetened shredded coconut

Coconut Macaroons: In a stainless steel bowl, placed over a saucepan of simmering water, whisk together the egg whites, molasses, sugar, and salt. When this mixture is warm to the touch, and nice and creamy, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract, flour, and coconut. Cover and refrigerate for about two hours, or until firm.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place small mounds (heaping tablespoons) of the batter on the parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing several inches apart. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes and then place on a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 2 dozen Macaroons.

1/3 c & 2 TBSP. molasses
3 tbsp. flour
1/8 tsp. salt
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp. almond extract

Combine coconut, sugar, flour, and salt in bowl. Stir in molasses, unbeaten egg whites and almond extract. Mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until edges are brown. Remove from sheets at once.
