Banana Bread This photo contains Banana Bread, Yummy Carrot Cake and these brownies. All of which freeze amazingly well! They are also made in mini-loaf pans to ensure perfect sized slices!

These are the most scrumptious brownies ever! There really isn’t anything frugal about them but they are such a divine treat! It also makes for a lot of dishes since you need to use multiple bowls but I assure you it is worth it!!

Ingredients:

  • 1lb Butter
  • 1lb Chocolate Chips
  • 7oz Unsweetened (or bittersweet) chocolate
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups of Sugar
  • 1 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 1 TBSP Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 1/2 Cups of chopped Walnuts (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat Oven to 350
  2. Butter and flour mini loaf pans. I usually add a small square of parchment paper on the bottom to make sure they come out easily.
  3. Melt together the butter and all but a handful of the chocolate chips along with the chocolate in a medium bowl over simmering water. Allow to cool slightly.
  4. In a separate larger bowl stir the eggs, sugar and vanilla together. Slowly stir the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and allow to cool to room temperature.
  5. In another bowl, sift together 1 cup of flour with the baking powder and your salt. Add it to the cooled chocolate mixture.
  6. Toss the 1/4 cup remaining flour, the remaining chocolate chips and your walnuts together and then add them into the batter.
  7. Pour into your mini loaf pans.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, then rap them against the oven shelf to force out any are. It will ‘fall’ a bit but that is OK! Bake for another 10+/- minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Check them frequently since oven temperatures vary and you do not want to over-bake these!
  10. Allow to cool and then refrigerate. The come out of the pan much better this way. I usually keep one or two loafs to eat and the remainder are wrapped and put into the freezer. These freeze really well, and if done in a mini loaf pan, thaw and slice quickly.
  11. Make them Extra Special: They are also great with a thin layer of basic butter cream icing on them though it isn’t really necessary.
