Best fudge brownies

We’re in the middle of two food projects here at Low House. First, the Stewie project. Second, the pre-baby project.

The pre-baby project is mostly about making lots of freezer-friendly meals in these last weeks before the baby gets here, and freezing some portion of each of them. Unofficially, it also involves keeping me fed, in these last crazy hungry squished-stomach growing-baby weeks of pregnancy. I stumbled upon a GREAT recipe for the late-pregnancy sweet tooth this week: these brownies. I have modified them from one of the many, dissimilar recipes for “Fudge Brownies” from various editions of the Good Housekeeping cookbook. Since I’ve modified them, I’ll provide the recipe. Sparks says they’re the best brownies he’s ever had.


Preheat oven to 350F.

Melt 2oz baking chocolate into
1/2 cup butter
Stir in 2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 t vanilla and
3/4 c AP flour

Decant into a greased 9″x9″ pan. Top with a handful of semisweet chocolate chips. Bake for 30 minutes. Enjoy.

The Stewie project is, of course, about eating our half-of-a-half of Stewie from snout to tail. I have two winners from that, which I’ll share tomorrow and Monday. Mustn’t flood a single blog post with too many recipes…
