Sunday Supper Suggestion, 5 minute Brownies

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

I have been making these brownies for ages! They originally came from the side of the Hershey's can, I think, but no matter they are delicious, easy, economical and we made them again last night. They aren't much more difficult than a box mix, so, make some already!

I have them titled in my aging recipe binder as 5 Minute Brownies, which leads me to believe they were part of a recipe series. Not too long ago I shared a delicious 5 Minute Chocolate Cake. And they really don't take much more time than that. All mixing is done by hand.

Another childhood favorite, 5 Minute Brownies.
5 Minute Brownies

5 Minute Brownies
adapted from Hershey's (I think)
makes 1 9X13 pan
350-degree oven

3/4 c cocoa
1/2 t soda
2/3 c oil - divided
1/2 boiling water
2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt

1-2 c broken walnuts - if desired

In a large bowl, combine cocoa, soda and 1/3 c of the oil.

Add boiling water. The mixture will foam up.

Add the remaining 1/3 c oil, and sugar beating well. Add eggs and vanilla, beat again.  Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix in until mixture is smooth and no dry pockets remain.

Turn into a prepared 9X13 pan, sprinkle with nuts.

Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until done in your oven. Let cool, cut into bars.
