Penelope made [delicious!] brownies from scratch this morning.
Zack took photos, so this post will be a little different than the norm. I will say though, this recipe is really easy, and if sugar and cocoa powder weren’t so messy, she could’ve done this solo.
This recipe was taken from here – and this would be a great Christmas gift.
For the “mix,” that you can gift or keep ready in the pantry.
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup cocoa
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
See directions for amounts on the website, depending on pan size:
For a 9x9 pan:
Mix 2 cups of Brownie Mix with
1/2 cup melted butter [or you can use vegetable oil, or liquid coconut oil]
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon water.
If desired, add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts or mini chocolate chips
Spread in a 9x9” pan that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake at 350°F for about 20-24 minutes (I did 20)
Penelope enjoyed licking the bowl while I messed with the oven and cleaned up. Its always the best part. :)
