Brownie Recipe from the kitchen of Susan Tuft!

Susan’s Wonderful Brownies!

Mix all this stuff together with your mix master:

1 cube softened margarine
1 3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Then add:
½ cup dry powdered milk (the “instant” kind...most of them are)
1/3 cup cocoa powder (the dark bitter stuff)
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup flour

Batter will be stiff. Spread into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake for 28-30 minutes, at
somewhere between 325 & 350 degrees. Don’t over bake. (Don’t over eat!!)
Now! These brownies are real tasty with chocolate frosting of some kind, but, they’re EVEN
BETTER UN-frosted, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on them, and covered with this sauce:

Chocolate Microwave Sauce

Add all this dry stuff and mix it well::

1 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup cocoa powder
dash salt
Then put in 1 cup of water and stir it up.

Microwave on high power for about 2 minutes, or until it just begins to thicken. Then take it out,
stir in 2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
Microwave again for about 1-1 ½ minutes more, til thick. Don’t go too long in the microwave or
it can get Way Too Thick. (You can cure this by adding water, and Stirring Soundly, by the
way).
Anyway, when it’s thick but not TOO thick, pour it over the ice cream and brownie.
DELICIOUS!!!

Glad I found this blog today. Enjoyed the read and delicious recipe.

Here comes an invitation to visit my blog--this week if possible--as my "Spotlight the Youth" contest ends Friday, and lots of votes are needed to make it work. So please spread the word.

Thanks so much.
