Easy Peasy Yummy Brownie

By Beverly Hicks Burch

When you’re in the middle of a move and you’ve set your weary bones down in front of the telly, it’s funny what the mind can do to you. Like play minds games concerning food…causing you to crave “comfort” food you know good and well you just don’t have on hand and DO NOT have the energy to make. That happened to me over this past weekend when Tall & Handsome and I were working around the house.

Now, just interject your own personal energy draining and exhausting activity and…well, never fear…do I ever have the recipe for you! It’s a brownie recipe that is so yummy and so easy to make it ought to be against the law…

T & H deemed them quite good and scarfed down two warm ones right away. I think they would be extra yummy with a little bit of vanilla ice cream on the side. (My favorite is Byers Light and Creamy Vanilla.)

Hope you enjoy Easy, Peasy, Yummy Brownie!

Easy, Peasy, Yummy Brownies

½ cup unsalted butter, melted (you could use salted, too)

1 cup sugar

2 eggs, beaten

½ cup self-rising flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon pure vanilla flavoring

½ cup chopped nuts (my go to nuts are pecans and walnuts. I happened to use walnuts the other night.)

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare an 8 inch or 9 inch baking pan.

2. In a mixing bowl mix together the sugar and the melted butter. Add the eggs, one at a time and mix well.

3. Combine the dry ingredients together and then stir them into the sugar mixture.

4. Add the vanilla. Stir in the nuts.

5. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the edges are firm. A toothpick inserted in the middle will come out clean. Cut into squares.
