Brownies 3 ways at once

I took brownies to my dentist appointment last week. Before I handed them to the receptionist I asked, “Is it in poor taste to bring brownies to the staff in a dental office?” Before I could finish my question, she answered with a stone-faced, “No, it’s not.”

I like taking brownies places. People get really excited at the mention of the word. I think it’s a great way to make friends.

This is a triple recipe — standard fare in my kitchen. I make it in an 11 x 17 pan.

  • 3 sticks butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 cups cocoa
  • 1 Tbs. vanilla

Mix, pour into greased pan, top with chips or nuts or berries (if using berries make sure they are at room temperature, and dry). Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cut when cool, if you can wait that long. If you cut them small you can get 88 brownies.


Here’s the math for a single recipe. Bake in an 8″ x 8″ pan:

  • 1 sticks butter
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cups cocoa
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  1. Just rereading your recipe since it occurred to me I have raspberries hanging around. Do you use Dutch-processed or the other kind of cocoa? I’m not sure of the differences in character between the two.
