The Best Brownies EVER! Lunchroom Ladies 50 year old recipe

Comments : 2 Posted in : Brownie, Dessert on by : Master Chef

These are my very favorite kind of brownie- fudgy, chewy, and oh so chocolaty.
You’ll have a hard time not eating 2 or 3 or even 4 or 5. They are that good. It’s a classic recipe you will want to make over and over again.
Supposedly this recipe was originally from a lunch lady in Idaho- hence the name Lunch Lady Brownies. The recipe dates back about 50 years, proving it has stood the test of time. It’s a simple recipe made from just butter, cocoa, flour, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
If you haven’t tried this recipe before, you’ll find they are definitely a keeper.

Ingredients :
You’ll Need (for the cake):
1 cup of butter.
½ cup of cocoa.
2 cups of flour.
2 cups of sugar.
4 eggs.
4 tsps of vanilla.
1 cup of chopped nuts.
You’ll Need (for the icing):
¼ cup of softened butter.
¼ cup of milk.
¼ cup of cocoa.
3 cups of powdered sugar.
A dash of salt.

    I detest recipes that do not give details about how to prepare the pan or how to combine the ingredients. Do you butter the pan, or can you spray it with an aerosol? Baking is an exact science/art and I am not anxious to waste my time and money on a recipe that leaves out important info.

    Yes, should the pan be buttered?? Can’t wait to try this recipe.
