Is there anything better than chocolate?
But really, a chocolate brownie topped with chocolate icing… how could that not be amazing?This Lunch Lady Brownies is a dense, cake-like brownie, rather that a moist chewy brownie.
It’s a 50 year old school cafeteria recipe,enjoy
1 cup of Butter ( unsalted)
1/2 cup of Cocoa
2 cups of All Purpose Flour
2 cups of Sugar
4 teaspoons of Vanilla
1 cup of Chopped Nuts (optional)
The Chocolate Icing Recipe:
To make while the brownies bake
1/4 cup of softened Butter
1/4 cup of canned Milk (regular milk is fine)
1/4 cup of Cocoa
3 cups of Powdered Sugar
Dash of Salt
Mix all together and frost as desired.
Melt the Butter in the microwave and put into my mixing bowl, then I add cocoa and mix together until smooth.
Add flour, and sugar. Beat together and then add eggs, vanilla, and nuts. Mix until combined. Do not over stir.
Pour into greased, floured 9×13 baking pan*.
Bake 20-25 minutes @350 F or until done. I would check at it at 20 minutes.
Wait only about 10 minutes to frost brownies.
Frost them while they are warm (not hot).
