I had never made homemade brownies before this past weekend. Wellll, never that I can remember. It's possible that I made them with my grandmother growing up, but I have no recollection of those events.
So anyway, I got an itch to bake and whipped up some brownies following this recipe from About.com. I altered it a bit.
1 1/4 cups margarine
2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and then mix with cocoa. Stir in sugar and blend in the eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla. Stir in the flour and and mix for about 2 minutes. Bake in greased 9 x 13-inch pan for 25 minutes.
Yay for brownies!
