The Brownies You Need in Your Life!
After discovering this recipe, I pretty much have sworn off “boxed” brownies —
The recipe is one I adapted from The Great American Bake Sale (Bangor Big Fat Fudge Brownies) by Alison Boteler (Barron’s 1991).
This made-from-scratch version is basic, easy. What can I say? No special skills needed! I mean — can you crack an egg, measure and stir?
The original recipe is indulgent (and SO worth trying!).
But there I was feeling guilty about all the butter so I reduced the amount (from 3/4 cup to 1/4 cup) and replaced it with 1/2 cup applesauce.
The butter and sugar seem to rise to the top to make a delicately crunchy “crust.” It’s a must — you need to try it.
