"Early to bed
and early to rise
I'll bake just as soon
as I open my eyes!!"
Sometime when I was in college my Mum bought me this little book...The ABC of Cookies from the Peter Pauper Press. It is chockful of easy recipes and little rhymes that all have to do with baking.
I've made Brownies following the instructions here hundreds of times....recipe is simple and absolutely guaranteed :)
2/3 cup Flour, sifted with a pinch of salt and 1/2 tsp baking powder.
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup soft buttter
1 tsp Vanilla
200 gms Chocolate
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
In a bowl mix the sugar with the butter whisking till light.Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or zap in the microwave. Add to the sugar-egg mix and blend it well. Add the flour gradually mixing as you go and finally stir in the nuts. Mix the batter well.
In a greased baking tin spread the batter and bake at 350 F or 180 C for about 25 minutes.
Cut into squares and serve hot!!
