Brownies

I really have been slack in the baking department lately. But it's a bit of a problem too. My "men" complain if I bake because they will have to eat it and don't want to eat to many sweets. But if I don't bake - they want to know what's for dessert and disappointed if there isn't any! If only they would just Make Up Their Minds!!


I think I'll bake these today, haven't made them in a while:


BROWNIES
Ingredients:
1 cup margarine, melted
1 cup water
3 rounded tbsp. cocoa
Boil above ingredients and let cool.

Add to cocoa mixture:
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups white sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sour cream
Bake in large cookie sheet at 350F for 20 minutes.

Icing:
1/4 cup cream
1/3 cup margarine/butter, melted and cooled
3 tbsp. cocoa
Add 2 cups icing sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla and mix well. Pour over cake while still warm. Enjoy!

Well - I placed the 1 cup of margarine in a 2 cup glass measuring cup and melted it in the microwave, then added really hot water from the tap and mixed in the cocoa till it was smooth. (why heat up an element?) Also - I baked the brownies in a 9 X 13 pan, but then had to bake it almost 10 minutes longer. They are really quite good!!

  1. those look delicious. I don't do much baking because it's just me and my husband and he doesn't eat much in the way of sweets. If I bake I end up eating it all myself. That's not a bad thing except for the fact that all my clothes end up being too tight...lol

  2. OOOO How happy am I that I'm not at all tempted by chocolate. I know - most people think me insane, but if I wasn't, I'd be baking these and I'd be eating them all!
