Without a box brownie to make for shabbos I went hunting on the internet for a recipe I could use to bring to my daughter’s for friday night dinner. I made a double recipe so there would be some left for Saturday lunch. I feared they wouldn’t be chewy and moist because I used so many eggs (double recipe was four eggs) but we all agreed they were amazing. Perfect chewy, moist. The original recipe called for 1 cup sugar, but I cut it to 2/3 cup. It also called for vegetable oil, I only use olive oil and they were perfect!
1/2 cup oil (I use olive, but any vegetable oil can be used)
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs beaten well
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients except flour and walnuts well. Add flour and optional walnuts and mix until all flour is incorporated. Spread batter in a 9 x 9 baking pan (sprayed with cooking spray.) Bake 20 – 25 minutes. Let cool before cutting.
