These Fudgy Brownies are the best homemade brownie recipe. They are so thick and rich, and definitely feed a crowd.
- 8 Tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 cup unsalted butter (or margarine - our grandma liked to do 1/2 cup of each)
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2½ cups flour
- 1 cup nuts optional
- pinch salt
- 1 pound powdered sugar
- ¼ cup butter softened
- 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
- ¼ cup hot water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Melt butter or margarine, and then stir in cocoa.
Add in sugar and eggs to the mixing bowl and stir together.
Add in vanilla, flour, nuts and salt and beat together well.
Spoon batter into the prepared pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until cooked through.
Mix the frosting ingredients together and spread over the hot brownies and serve.
You can also let the brownies cool and then frost. This way the frosting is thicker.
