Speaking of brownies, here's another great one to try out. It's fantastic - very deep, dark chocolatey - my favorite recipe:

The "Baked" Brownie:

I like using Penzy's cocoa in these brownies, it is a bit darker.

You could also try Hershey's Special Dark cocoa for a more intense dark chocolate flavor.

The recipe on the back of the Regular Hershey's Cocoa is to die for. Then I made the same cake with the Special Dark. It took me days to get over eating just one slice. I felt like I had stuck my mouth under one of those chocolate fountains. Spike took the rest of the cake home before I could get a second slice or even eat the whole thing myself. I will never make that cake again using the regular cocoa.

Another vote for Hershey's special Dark cocoa!

I am a big fan of walnuts in brownies. I was taught to sprinkle the roughly broken walnuts on top of the batter prior to popping it into the oven. This allows the walnuts to toast while the brownies are baking.

Remember a double batch is not any more work to make than a single batch.

Make it in two 8x8 pans, hide one and share one!

I won't tell!

That's the recipe that I used to make the cake this weekend in the "what are you baking today thread". I used regular penzys cocoa in it though. It's such a fantastic cake recipe!

I'd love that recipe, Garlic. Since I'm the only girl in my dept I'm called the crew mom and certain things are expected from me like feeding the kids.

Aunt Bea, you nailed it :)

My birthday is next week and expect a cake FROM me.

I have alway told my kids if you want the best recipe, then go to the folks who make the product. They have a test kitchen and you can bet they only publish the very best recipe. What makes that cake so great is the boiling water. It makes the chocolate flavor bloom to its very height of taste.

I didn't forget about this thread but I'm having a hard time getting online to play. Between working OT and working with the puppy and tending to Penny's issues, my time is just so very limited.

That is quite all right. We are quite willing to take second place to any pet that needs attention. We all understand. Give them a hug from all of us
