Recipe by franmicsulli

This recipe is from the book "A Family Raised on Sunshine," it's the absolute best recipe for brownies that I have ever made! My grandmother and step-mother always made this exact recipe and now I make it for my family. I like to add vanilla extract and sub brown sugar for some of the white sugar. I also like to take them out of the oven before they're done so they're really chewy when they cool, if we can wait that long!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan on low heat. Mix in the cocoa powder and then add sugar. Once it mixed well, add eggs, flour, salt, vanilla (optional), and nuts (optional). Pour into a 9" square greased baking pan.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25-30 minutes. Let cool, cut and enjoy!
