Marble Brownies-Better Homes and Gardens Cookies and Candies 1966
These were not the best brownies I've ever made, but for a quick, easy dessert they were nice. These are the cake type, and are really very light (not "light" in the healthy sense as they still contain a stick of butter) which some people simply adore. Me? I'm more the dense sort (in more ways than one). The frosting was mediocre, so I'll just post the brownie recipe.
You Will Need:
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2/3 cup AP flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled slightly
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 pan.
Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in vanilla. Beat in eggs until well mixed. Sift dry ingredients together, and stir into creamed batter. Remove half of batter to another bowl. Stir chocolate into one part of batter. Drop by spoonfuls alternating in pan beside each other. With a knife, gently marble the top by dragging across (I suck at this). Bake 30 minutes. Cool in pan, on rack. Frost if desired.
