My Mother’s Kitchen: Brownies Recipe

I love brownies—especially the ones made from scratch, with real cocoa or semi-sweet chocolate, eggs, milk and butter. Brownies fall under the “comfort food” category for me; I can’t even think about calories when I’m enjoying them still warm from the oven. Wait until they’re frosted? I don’t think so. If you do want that extra sweetness, try sifting a dusting of icing sugar over the top of them. But these brownies can also stand on their own, frosting-less, bare, naked. Naked brownies. Yum.

Mom’s brownie recipe remains one of my favourites; I remember spooning the cocoa out of the can into the metal tablespoon, levelling it off with a knife, and reaching back into the cocoa can for another scoop—9 scoops in all. I hope you have an opportunity to try these brownies soon; I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

9 Tbsp. cocoa
5 tbsp. butter
1 ½ cup white sugar
¼ tsp. salt
2 eggs
¾ cup milk
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder

Combine all ingredients together. Place in 8” x 8” greased pan. Bake in 350° F oven until done, approximately 20-30 minutes.

  1. Recipes from Moms and Grandmoms are treasures because of all memories they invoke. I had the fortune to create a family cookbook with favorite family recipes and the stories that goes with them. This sounds like a wonderful recipe. Thanks for sharing.
