Sunday Baking

So I have been MIA this week. I have been very busy with taxes but see a light at the end of the tunnel this week. Yesterday the girls and I made some brownies for our Sunday baking. They were more willing to bake with me this time :) Here is the recipe:

Chewy Brownies


  • 1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup Cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)


  1. PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 13x9-inch baking pan.
  2. COMBINE sugar, butter and water in large bowl. Stir in eggs and vanilla extract. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in medium bowl; stir into sugar mixt ure. Stir in nuts. Spread into prepared baking pan.(Note: for chewy brownies do not overmix or they will be more cake like)
  3. BAKE for 18 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out slightly sticky. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.
