I used to be famous for these and was expected to bring them everywhere I went. They are a lovely, chewy type brownie that needs no icing. The recipe came from an old church cookbook from my childhood.

This recipe is so quick and easy to put together that my 10 year old GD made them with very little supervision by me. They use ingredients I always have. And the taste was divine! Thanks so much for sharing your delicious recipe maincooncat!

These brownies are very good. They are easy to make and go together very quickly. My family prefers a fudgier brownie, but for you cakey brownie lovers, this is a good one. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe.

I have to go along with the majority of raters and give you 5 stars for this one mainecooncat. I had a couple DGDs here saying, "Lets make something." I had run across the recipe a day before. So, they decided we would try it.I did the mixing by hand for them. They were delighted with them. Yummy was the term that they used. With simple instructions and the type ingredients always at hand, I can see I will be making many more of these delicious brownies. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. jim
