Scratch Brownies

Scratch Brownies created by kcammenga

Everyone has a favorite brownie recipe or, more likely, makes brownies from a mix. This recipe is so easy that you can forgo the expensive mixes and make these from items in your pantry. This recipe is from "The Betty Feezor Show," a North Carolina home economics television program that ran from the 1950s until Betty's untimely death in the late 1970s.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cream butter (or margarine) and sugar. This works well with a mixer, but you can do it by hand.
  • After creaming, switch to a spoon for mixing. Brownies tend to get tough if worked too much. Add the vanilla and eggs and mix just until smooth.
  • Pour in cocoa powder and flour. Again, mix until smooth and lumps are broken up, but don't overmix or work the batter too much.
  • At this point, if you want to add extras such as nuts, raisins, or chocolate pieces, just fold those in easily.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes in 2 pans size 8 inches by 8 inches. You can use a larger pan like the 9 x 9 and cook for a little longer, 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. If you use a single pan, then the Scratch Brownies are thicker.

    These did not turn out good at all! They were not sweet enough, and the texture was more like stale cake instead of the gooey brownie was expecting. The batter was hard to get moist, and they tasted greasy. I won't be making these again!
