These yummy Homemade Fudge Brownies are delicious!
Using just plain, simple ingredients, the Homemade Fudge Brownies are easy to make and don’t take a long time.
Part of The Recipe Project, this recipe was included in a cookbook made for Lee Presbyterian Church and printed in 1985!
Who doesn’t like brownies? And when those brownies are made from scratch, as opposed to out of a box, I think they are even better. The recipe for the Fudge Brownies did not have a lot of liquid included – no oil, no water, so I was a little concerned these brownies would be dry. As a matter of fact, after mixing the ingredients all together it looked like the consistency of frosting, not brownie mix. What do you think?
Other than the consistency looking off to me, everything else went smoothly.
I took this recipe and made it my own, but am also including a picture of the original recipe. I am however, blocking out the last name of the original writer for privacy reasons.This was the original recipe contributed by Sandy B.:
I did not follow the recipe to the ‘t’. Actually, I followed it completely, except I did not include any nuts. I also did not sift my flour, just used all purpose flour and the cocoa I used was an already seasoned cocoa by Nestle.
