I have nothing against boxed cake or even brownie mixes. I don't judge.
But brownies are really easy to make.
And if you bake at all, you are likely to have the ingredients you need if you suddenly HAVE TO HAVE BROWNIES (I don't know if that happens to you but it does to me).
Here's how I make them. You don't have to add the orange, but a hint of orange with chocolate is really good.
- 1 stick of butter, melted
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 Cup Cocoa
- 3/4 Cup flour
- tsp salt
- Zest 1/4 - 1/2 Orange
- 1 Tbl Orange liqueor
- 1 tspVanilla
Mix the sugar with melted butter. Add eggs, zest, liqueor and vanilla. Beat well. Add salt., Add the cocoa, mix well. Then add the flour. Just mix enough to moisten everything. DO NOT OVER MIX!
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes are so. You want it to be a little underbaked.
Sift powdered sugar, and spring red, green and gold sugar over the top.
There. Wasn't that easy???
