This recipe came from my mothers infamous brownie recipe. I accidentally added the soda which worked as a leavening agent, creating a cake-like airy-ness. I like this recipe better than the original!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter and cool.
  2. Beat the eggs, sugar and applesauce together.
  3. Add flour, salt, cocoa and soda.
  4. Add cool butter, then vanilla.
  5. Throw in the nuts, if you want to. You can add all types of other things, like chopped white chocolate, raisins, chopped up candy bars, etc.
  6. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes in a 9x13. Don’t over bake.
  7. Don’t forget to lick your fingers and the spoon!
