Uncle Tom's Butterscotch Brownies Click here for printable recipe
The butterscotch brownies in Aunt Dimity's Good Deed are my true favorites (so far) because they're incredibly sweet, they require only one bowl, and they're virtually foolproof. A kind woman brought some to me when I was visiting a bookstore in Michigan. She confessed, rather shamefacedly, that she'd left them in the over 45 minutes too long. Happily, she had nothing to be shamed about--they were delicious. As I said: foolproof!
Preheat oven to 365 degrees Fahrenheit. Makes 16 brownies.
1/2 cup melted butter
2 cups dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
Butter a 9-inch square cake pan. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl, combining them well. Spread mixture
in the cake pan and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until dry on top and almost firm to the touch. Let cool for 10-15 minutes, then
cut in 2-inch squares.
