Why I Love This Recipe

After trying brownie after brownie my son-in-laws, 91 year old Mother and grandson awarded and named these as their all time favorite return favorites.

Hope you like these, enjoy!

~~Hugs, LindaChicken

Ingredients You'll Need

½ cup sifted enriched flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
3 squares unsweetened chocolate (3 ounces)
1/3 cup shortening (I only use Crisco)
2 fresh eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup nuts coarsely chopped


Oil the pan and se the oven at 350º

Sift the flour, measure, add baking powder and salt, and resift.

Melt the chocolate and shortening in the top of a double boiler over boiling water. Remove when melted.

Beat the eggs well, add sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Stir in melted shortening and chocolate.

Add the flour, blend well. Add the nuts and stir only enough to blend in.

Spread in the greased pan, bake for 30-35 minutes.

Test with a toothpick. When stuck in the middle of the baked batter the toothpick should come out clean and the top crust should be glossy and firm.

Place pan on the cake cooler. When thoroughly cooled cut in squares and remove the squares carefully.

Dust the top with confectioner’s sugar, if desired.

Hi Linda: Nice to see you posting recipes on this website. I've switched over from TOH. I couldn't find any of my recipes that I had saved and am still waiting for a reply from them.
