Brownies Two Ways

You know those little cookbooks put together
for fundraisers or family reunions?
Sometimes you can find hidden gems of recipes in them.
Such is the case with this Brownie recipe by Julie Godden which
I found in the Stirring Your Heart for Watoto's Children Cookbook.
Not only is it moist and delicious the first day,
but it stays that way for days afterwards.
It is one of my favorite things to send to my daughter in college
as I know they will taste just as moist and delicious
when she gets them as the day I made them.
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup cocoa
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup oil
4 eggs
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 cups sugar
Place all ingredients in bowl in order listed.
Beat by hand or on low speed of mixer until smooth.
Don't overbeat.
Pour into greased 9x13 pan.
Bake at 350F or until center is done,
about 25 minutes.
These make a great Brownie Sundae when you top a piece or two
with ice cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
And if there's any left they are delicious just as they are
and they also are great to pack in lunches!
Such a quick and simple recipe
for a yummy dessert or lunchtime treat!
