Lunch Lady Brownies


For the Brownies:

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

3 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup all-purpose flour

For the Frosting:

2 tablespoons butter, softened

3 tablespoons milk

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Arrange a 9”x9” baking pan with foil, extending it over the edges for easy removal later.

For the batter: In a bowl, blend the sugar and melted butter until it’s light and fluffy. Introduce eggs and vanilla, mixing until seamlessly combined.

Gradually fold in flour and cocoa powder, ensuring a consistent color. Pour this batter into your baking dish and let it bake for about 20-25 minutes. It’s done when a knife reveals few moist crumbs upon insertion. Ensure you don’t overbake for that perfect texture.

As the brownies cool, whip up the frosting. Combine butter, milk, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar in a bowl. Adjust texture with milk or powdered sugar, if needed.

Apply the frosting on slightly warm brownies, allowing it to meld seamlessly. Once set, slice, and employ the foil to lift them out effortlessly.

Indulge in a blast from the past with each bite!
