When I was young I often licked the brownie beaters.
I still make brownies on those cold, stormy unforgiving weather days.
It brings me joy to bake in my little kitchen. My apron tightly wrapped around me as I gingerly dip my head to examine the brownies rising in the oven.
If you find yourself in a similar rainy day need for brownies.
I love this recipe because it only uses one bowl.
Try my brownie recipe!
MAGGIE’S BEATER LICKIN’ GOOD BROWNIES
1 stick of melted butter
3/4 cup cocoa powder (I use Nestle Tollhouse 100% pure cocoa)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 c. gluten free FLOUR (I used Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Rising Flour)
1/4 tsp. salt
CHOCOLATE CHUNKS (ABOUT 3/4 CUP DEPENDING ON HOW YOU LIKE YOUR BROWNIES
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl combine melted butter, cocoa powder and brown sugar. Beat pretty darn well so that there’s no lumps. Add eggs one at a time beating after each egg is added then drip in vanilla and stir well.
Stir in flour and salt. Do not over stir!
Spoon into an 8×8 pan and spread evenly.
Sprinkle chocolate chunks on top of the brownie batter.
Bake 20-22 minutes. Remove from oven and wait a good bit to let the brownies cool enough. Then cut yourself a piece of Maggie’s Beater Lickin’ brownies and enjoy!
I gotta say baking has been such a relief for me during my classes. Wow, brownies give me studying “super-powers”, well, hah-ha, maybe that’s an EGG-ZA-GERATION!
Heehee, I couldn’t resist the terrible pun.
I love baking and am so happy to share my recipes on this blog and hopefully brighten someones day!
Munching away at my bagel billowing with creamy PB Fit and my favorite strawberry jam I muse over how hard we’ve both worked to make this move possible. My fiance has certainly really put in buckets of time studying and really making this opportunity possible. And to think he’s been hammering away at his thesis all summer and it remains to be finished.
Ayiyi! I applaud his integrity and dedication, truly!
We signed on our first apartment together– “going to be married” apartment in Minnesota!!!! I will be staying in that apartment and my fiance in another place which has yet to be found.
So, now, we’re much more relaxed from all the anxiety that’s been humming around us. OMGoodness!!!!
We have to tackle the basement, TODAY. Oh golly, we have been putting that off.
Not really looking forward to going down and working with all the spiders. They’re not very helpful workers 😉
As I sat outside guarding the smoker I noticed the smoke spiraling and curling up and out of the wooden pergula above. The day had been a hot one filled with coffee, job applications, house hunting and more. Oh, friends, my bones are weary. After last March, when I was diagnosed with anemia and IBS it has been hard getting up enough energy and stamina to make it through the day.
But God is with me and I shall make it through.
Oh, God is so good!
That smoke I was talking about earlier reminded me of praying.
When I pray about someone or something, the anxiety I’m feeling immediately just spirals up and away like smoke.
I rest in God’s love and trust that he will overcome my fears and anxieties.
