Lady brownies

Paula Deen

Makes: 15 to 20

  • ¬†2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Blend together sugar, oil, eggs, cocoa and vanilla. Add flour; mix. Add nuts; spread batter into greased 13″ x 9 ” baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean).

*Chef’s note:¬†These cakey brownies are great because they are not too sweet. But I also substituted 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips instead of the nuts, so they may have been just a little too subtle for my liking without the added chocolate. If there’s no butter in it, it can’t be Paula’s best, but my extended family loved them warm with vanilla ice cream for Labor Day. They will be paler on top when done, and for me they took closer to 40 minutes. I’m not sure if me using regular flour made a difference versus the self-rising in time, but the texture was still great.
