Easy dessert

For our Super Bowl festivities this evening, I decided I’ll make my classic brownies.  Since we are trying to lose weight, I’m going to make a small batch (I often double the recipe).  My goal is not to have leftovers.  These are simple to make and easy to eat (perhaps too easy!)


  • 2 squares Baker’s Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
  • 1sticks butter
  • 1cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350.  Melt chocolate, butter and sugar over low heat.  Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.  Stir in flour, eggs and vanilla.  Transfer to a 9 x 9 inch baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 22 minutes.  (You can double the recipe and cook in a rectangular baking pan.)  Remove from oven and let sit in pan for at least an hour before cutting.  These are so good and they are so simple.  If you use mixes to make brownies, I hope this converts you to making them from scratch.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
