From-Scratch Brownies!

Why is it so difficult to buy something chocolate from the grocery store without feeling guilty? Do you guys feel that? Sanne went to the store tonight and came home without any chocolate and, of course, a few hours later was craving something chocolate. I am always craving chocolate. Lucky for us, we have coco powder and Sanne is a Keebler Elf, so, like a good little baking Hobbit, whipped up some brownies hella-fast. Aaaand she made up her own recipe. Tricksy Hobbitses.

Here it is:
1/2 stick of unsalted butter
2 eggs
1c brown sugar
1c flour
1/3c applesauce
1/2c coco
2-ishT wheat germ
1T vanilla
1/2t baking powder
1/2t salt

and a splash of milk, because it's pretty thick. If you like your brownies thick and fudge-y, forget the milk. Sanne is wishing she had some Mexican vanilla because it is The Shit. Next time, she would add a "generous amount" (3T?). Next time...

Okay, bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Devour them with a nice, cold glass of milk.

p.s. How many of you have seen this show and how many of you love it and how many of you want a wardrobe-overhaul after watching it? I love her cute little dresses!

  1. Is it possible to mail you some Mexican vanilla? I personally don't know how you're living without it.

  2. I love your guys blog, thanks for sharing!!
