To Die for Fudgy Brownies

A very long time ago I had the privilege of going to a Taste of Home Cooking School with some dear friends in Utah. (Hi Julie, Kathy,  Irma, and Jenny!) It was a blast!

One of the recipes they gave us that day was this Fudgy Brownie recipe that has become a beloved recipe in the Team Southerland household.

These brownies are so rich, so moist, so chocolatey. You might want to cut them a little smaller than normal brownies… but I won’t tell if you don’t.

To Die For Fudgy Brownies

4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate squares
1 C butter flavored Crisco (or palm shortening)
2 C sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
1 C flour (whole wheat or white)
Dash of salt

1. Spray a 9”x13” baking dish with nonstick spray. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Melt the chocolate and Crisco (or palm shortening) in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until smooth.

Let me digress for just a second. Palm shortening is my go-to ingredient for any recipe calling for Crisco or lard. I use it for frying and baking. It is a much heathier oil and you can read more about Palm Shortening in my previous post. We use it for Chicken Fried Steak, Grandma’s Pie Crust, Homemade French Fries, Country Biscuits, and of course, these awesome brownies.

3. Place sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the melted chocolate. Stir well.

4. Add the vanilla.

5. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition.

6. Mix in the flour and the salt, a little at a time, stirring until uniform.

Let me digress one more time. I use freshly ground whole wheat in these brownies. They taste so yummy and I feel better knowing that I am slipping in some healthy wheat. Go ahead and make them with any flour you wish.

7. Spread the batter into a prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with yummy, fudgy crumbs.

8. Cool completely before frosting. No, really, I’m not joking. You really do need to wait. 😉

1. Place the cream and chocolate chips in a saucepan and cook over medium heat.

3. Pour the mixture into a small bowl to cool while the brownies are baking and cooling.

4. Spread over the brownies. Allow the frosting to set up just a bit before cutting.

I love these Fudgy Brownies. I usually make them for the classes I teach and they never fail to get rave reviews. It’s hard to go wrong when my students love the food! 🙂
