    I got this recipe in Home Economics in 1974 and it's still the best brownie recipe I have ever made.


    • Brownie Batter:
    • 4 oz semi sweet chocolate squares
    • 2/3 cup oil
    • 4 eggs
    • 2 cups white granulated sugar
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1-1/2 C Flour
    • Frosting:
    • 4 Tbsp butter
    • 2 tsp vanilla
    • 2 c. confectioner sugar
    • 8 Tbsp cocoa
    • 4 Tbsp milk


    1. On medium heat, melt 4 oz. semi sweet chocolate squares (four squares) in 2/3 c. oil. In separate mixing bowl, mix 2 cups sugar, 4 eggs and 1 tsp baking powder along with the oil and chocolate mixture. (Optional: Add to batter, 1 cup walnuts or pecans)
    2. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.
    3. Frosting:
    4. Mix all ingredients and spread over top when cooled

          This is one of my favorite recipes. It was everything we love about a brownie, very easy to make and great chocolate flavoring. We had some pecans we were trying to use up as well as some butterscotch morsels we swirled on top. Had we added neither, this recipe would have received the exact same review. We loved it!
