I don't think I've ever had anything like this brownie, but I'm so glad I tried this recipe on a whim. It was listed in my Betty Crocker Cookbook as "lowfat" (what!? A lowfat brownie!) and as it turns out is really fast and really easy to throw together. Oh, and did I mention delicious. Kevin and I were both impressed with these chewy bars of goodness. I hope you are too!
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. milk
1 large egg
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts, if desired (I left this out)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of an 8 inch square pan.
In 1-1/2 quart saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in brown sugar, vanilla, milk, and egg and remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients (using a wire whisk is helpful here). Spread in pan.
Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool at least 5 minutes in pan on wire rack.
Yields: 16 brownies
