First, let me say "THANK YOU!!" for all the sweet, compassionate messages for our girl; Nikita.
She seems to be getting a little better every day since she's been home, but is still not out of the woods. She's been doing lots of good sleeping. So, today I decided to do some baking to keep myself from hovering over her. I decided to make brownies. Brownies make everything better, right?? Sorry about the pictures, I just grabbed my point and shoot.
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp salt
- nuts (optional) I used pecans cause that's what I had.
- cho chips (optional) I used milk.
These silicon collapsible measuring cups are one of my favorites:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl mix the oil, sugar and vanilla.
Mix in the eggs.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Then ad gradually into the oil & sugar mixture until combined.
Mix in the nuts and cho chips.
Spread into a greased 8x8 baking dish.
Bake for approx 30 mins or until the edges pull away and the center is set.
Cool, and pig out! These got thumbs up all around. Kita, did not have any. :-P
Yummy, chocolatey, nutty, gooey goodness.
Do you guys like the edges or center brownies?? Drew likes edges and I like center... works out pretty well!
Hope you have a great weekend!!
