Double Rich Brownies

Susan Feliciano


This is so simple, and so completely homemade. I haven't tried any substitutions in this recipe, such as oil or applesauce for butter, or whole wheat flour. I mean, brownies are brownies, and probably shouldn't be fiddled with too much! This is based on a brownie recipe from an old Joy cookbook.

How to Make Double Rich Brownies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan for chewy, moist brownies. For cake-like brownies, use a 9 x 9 inch pan.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate together in microwave or over a double boiler. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. Make the brownies by hand mixing, not a mixer. Do not overmix. Beat eggs and salt together until light and foamy in texture. Gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla.
  4. Combine the cooled chocolate mixture with the egg mixture. Before totally mixed, fold in the flour. Before it is uniformly mixed, stir in the pecans.
  5. Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake about 25 minutes. Do not cut until cool, as the inside will still be moist until it cools.
