Last Sunday I was in one of those moods! I WANTED BROWNIES! I am not eating sugar during the week and so on Sunday I was going nuts for some chocolate nutirents! Since I am not able to have dairy I was at a loss for how to fullfill this one craving...since most brownies have dairy in them. My darling sister informed that she had come across a recipe for brownies that I could try. So I did! I had to alter it a wee bit by leaving out the chocolate chips, but oh well it should still be so delicious! Here's how it went...I'll let ya know how they tasted in a minute!

This here is the yummy looking brownie dough...is that what it's called? I'm not sure!

Here's the flowered pan I poured the yummy mixture/dough in. MMmmmmmm!

Here we go...into the oven my lovely! Bake away, bake away! I can't wait to cut you up and devour you! Ooooh-la-la!

Here is what the oven popped out! A pan full of lovely, gooey goodness! No burning, no sagging, no unkindly wierdness! I am drooling just thinking about them! Oh I can't wait to eat them, WHERE'S THE KNIFE AND A PLATE?!

And for your viewing pleasure....the gooey goodness! Flaky on the outside and a moisture rich center! The steam rolling off the top, the smell of baked yummies, and the grin of a child about to shove the entire thing in his/her mouth...is the discription I am going to give as I end this post and tell you they are YUMMY! Simply DEEEEVINE!

Here is the recipe for my tiny audience! If you try them let me know of your reaction or feelings!

Speedy Brownies By: Diane Heier.......Altered for better eating by Sara Johnson
2 cups sugar
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon salt (I didn't put the full amount in...it's not necessary)
5 eggs (I know it's alot but well worth it!)
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used a new product I found that is vanilla in powder form and tastes a TON better and it is better for you)
*Diane adds 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips but I left those out for two reasons. One, I can't have them. Two, they would have made the brownies WAY to rich. I personally loved them without the extra calories! You can add them if you wish!

In a mixing bowl, combine the first seven ingredients: beat until smooth. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack (or eat imediately!). YIELD: about 3 dozen.

Happy baking!
