Minnesota Cooking: Crispy, Chewy Cocoa Powder Brownies
Brownies With Cocoa Powder are Tasty
Brownies, historically, are my downfall. I hate cake. But, brownies, even though cake, are different.
- 1 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup melted butter
- 3 tablespoons water
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Melt your butter. Mix the sugar, butter, water in large bowl. Stir in eggs and vanilla. In second bowl, mix your flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.
- Add flour mixture to egg mixture. Place in buttered pan. Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Recipe from Nestles
I actually sort of used the general gist of the recipe, but, I had a two cup tin measuring cup and a 1 cup glass measuring cup.
I did not use Nestle products, but instead had a tin of Hershey's Cocoa powder. I was listening to some women in church discussing how their mother or grandmother had a great recipe using the old chocolate syrup cans. But, now, since everything has gone plastic, she was unsure how much syrup to use.
The other person was discussing how their mother had used cocoa powder and 3/4 cup of flour.
I googled 3/4 cup of flour brownies. I even looked through some older cookbooks. Well. I found a few recipes and decided if there was cocoa and flour and eggs, how could I do it wrong. So. I share with you what I discovered.
