Aunt Essie was my great aunt. Don't know why she called these 'brownies,' unless it's because they are cut into squares. They have been in my family for years; they are light; not too sweet and the perfect accompaniment for your morning coffee or afternoon tea.

I love how easy this recipe is. The aroma while it was baking took me back to when my Granny used to bake. The end result is a very tasty cake that is supremely moist and very flavorful. I would serve this any time of any day and it has now become a family favorite!
