This recipe was submitted by Mrs. Stuart Padnos for a cookbook fund raiser put out by members of the Junior Welfare League, Holland, Michigan about 30 or so years ago. My mom brought the cookbook back to me as a souvenir of their trip. I've made these brownies all these years and have great luck with them every time. I like to top them with an easy cooked chocolate fudge icing that I got from a bowling partner several years ago. These brownies are like a chocolate cake-not gooey like some recipes and I do personally like them plain without nuts or raisins.
