in the kitchen

undefinedundefinedundefined In the kitchen with my mom, and we found ourselves baking walnut brownies.  I have so much to learn, but she is such a wonderful teacher! Really simple recipe (adapted from here based on what we had):

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

And here is what to do:

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking pan, in our case, a cast iron skillet!
  • Melt the butter over low heat. Pour into large mixing bowl and stir in cocoa powder, sugar, flour, and vanilla. Mix in egg whites and half of the walnuts.
  • Spread evenly into the baking pan (or cast iron skillet).
  • Top the brownies with the 2nd half of walnuts.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Let cool in pan for 30-45 minutes before cutting.

And of course, adjust as you see fit - based on what you have.

Warning: These are so good, we have made them twice in the last three days!
