Brownies

You know, I’ve shared a couple of brownie recipes with you, here on a scrumptious life, but I recently realized I hadn’t shared this one.  This was my go-to brownie for years.  I made a batch, a few weeks ago, to take on vacation, and remembered why I like this recipe.  The results are fudgy, with a little crust, and rich but not too sweet. They are wonderful with ice cream and a great base for caramel brownies – but that’s a other post.
