Sauce Pan Brownies

When I was a girl I lived in West Texas. Within walking distance (wasn't everything back then?) was our grocery store, drug store, 5&10 store, and a bakery called the Snow White Bakery. I remember going in there and the smells were just amazing. They made the most awesome brownies. I've never really found a brownie that compared but these are fairly similar, except the ones from my past were frosted. These are so easy to make and turn out a really great brownie.

SAUCE PAN BROWNIES

2 sticks butter
4 1 ounce squares Baker's (unsweetened) chocolate
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup chopped pecans (toasted)

Melt butter and chocolate together in a sauce pan. In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder. Add melted ingredients and stir well. Add eggs one at a time. Beat thoroughly. Spread in a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool. Cut into squares.

Did you live in Lubbock? There was a Snow White Bakery there many years ago.

Ang, these brownies sound absolutely delicious! I don't know what it is but this brownie recipe has really captured my heart. I won't have time to make these anytime soon, but I'm copying and saving. I'll bet these are just fabulous as a brownie sundae. Oh my gosh, I may have found the perfect brownie recipe here. You are just one of the best!

What are you doing to me?? (smile)
the baby-to-be and I want to know what we have to do to get some of these goodies. Baking isn't my thing these days -- it involves standing up!

The Oreos I eat every night have nothing on your goodies...these brownies look amazing!!

Frank, Janet, and Madelyn: I am going to have to research overnight shipping and get you some goodies. Just be glad you're not living in Texas anymore -- that baby would never come out!

I'm just going to start calling you Paula, Ms. Two Sticks of Butter!

But really - there isn't much better than chocolate and butter. That becomes brownies. Yummo.

Anj, I did have the opportunity to bake these this past weekend, and these brownies totally lived up to my expectations and then some. Ole Sweetie-Pi is in LOVE with these brownies. So moist and chocolaty, not quite cakey, not quite fudgy, just good good good! I don't think I'll be looking for a better brownie recipe! I'll be posting these on my blog in the next week or so and will be linking to you if that's okay.
