Freida Lou's Brownies

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sherrybeth

This recipe is from my cousin and I didn't realize I've had this recipe for 20 years. This makes an 8 X 8 pan and almost everyone I've given the recipe to advised that the pan only makes it out of the oven and never really gets to completely cool before all the brownies disappear!

These were tasty, but mine didn't really taste very chocolaty, and were kind of pale. I'm pretty sure I measured everything right?? I loved the texture though, so I'd just add more cocoa next time. It'd be super tasty with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. :) Made for your week 2 Football Pool win 2009.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup butter or 12 cup margarine
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa (you can use one more if you want them REALLY chocolatey)
  • 1 12 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 12 cups flour

  4. Pour into a lightly greased 8 X 8 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
