Recipe by Scandigirl

My Mother-in-law Grace Binney, is the finest brownie maker we know; and she makes it gladly for her son (my husband) when we visit. Calories... you mentioned calories...ahh, but they are too good to pass on!!!

We just made the recipe, without the icing, we put in 1/2 cup chocolate chips instead of the walnuts because my one son doesn't like nuts---wonderful! Light, cake-like brownie, not too sweet; we had it with ice cream. When it was done, it looked done lol so, no guessing if the inside was going to be cooked thru--we really enjoyed this one, thanks!
