5 Minute Brownies, revisit an old favorite!

I have been making these brownies for ages! They originally came from the side of the Hershey's can, I think, but no matter they are delicious, easy, economical and we made them again last night. They aren't much more difficult than a box mix, so, make some already!


I have them titled in my aging recipe binder as 5 Minute Brownies, which leads me to believe they were part of a recipe series. Not too long ago I shared a delicious 5 Minute Chocolate Cake. And they really don't take much more time than that. All mixing is done by hand.


Brownies
adapted from Hershey's (I think)
makes 1 9X13 pan
350-degree oven

3/4 c cocoa
1/2 t soda
2/3 c oil - divided
1/2 boiling water
2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt

1 c broken walnuts - if desire


In a large bowl, combine cocoa, soda and 1/3 c of the oil.




Add boiling water. The mixture will foam up.











Add the remaining 1/3 c oil, and sugar beating well. Add eggs and vanilla, beat again.  Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix in until mixture is smooth and no dry pockets remain.

Turn into a prepared 9X13 pan, sprinkle with nuts.

Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until done in your oven. Let cool, cut into bars.


Enjoy!
