Wanted a brownie recipe

Looking for a moist fudgy brownie like the brownie mix, but I want to make it from scratch. So many of the recipes say they are fudgy but they turn out more like a cake-like texture. Thanks everyone!

Try this one.  My mother always made it.

3/4 cup flour
1 c sugar
7  T cocoa
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
23 c. shortening   (I've used 1/3 cup oil instead)
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 T corn syrup
1 c walnuts

Mix first 5 ingredients.  Add next 4.  Mix 2 min. on low speed.
Stir in nuts
Bake in 8x8 greased pan 40 to 45 minutes t 350º

Go to my recipe box.  (click on my name and then to my recipe box) Look for the recipe for Outrageous Brownies.
Truly an amazing recipe it makes a HUGE pan but you can cut the recipe in half and make it in a 13X9 pan.  the original recipe calls for a half sheet pan or you could use one of the large jelly roll pans.
It can be expensive but well worth it.
The recipe looks long but broken down in to steps it is easy.

Hi Nikki ----- I don't care for a coffee taste in anything (except a cup) and I double the amount of nuts called for in a recipe.  How do you think I'd do with your recipe if I changed a couple things?    I do love brownied!!
Many thanks

I have made this without the coffee and it is fine.  3 Cups of nuts is plenty in this recipe but it can take more if you like, I don't think I would do a full 6 cups particularly since there are 2 Cups of chips going in as well.  Possibly 4 or 4 1/2 cups of nuts.
This brownie is so very good I think you will love it.
This freezes very well and I love a few scraps stirred into  or along side some ice cream.
If you make this let me know what you think.

The recipe is easy enough to cut in half and make in a 13X9 pan if you want to do that.

Sounds delicious, Judy. I like using cocoa in brownies. I think it makes them taste more chocolatey.

And Nikki, I love mocha/coffee flavored anything, so I'm sure I'll be trying your recipe too.

The Baker's One Bowl Brownie recipe is great!  Find it on the back of the "orange" box of unsweetened chocolate!  I always add a handful of chocolate chips and walnuts for extra gooey goodness!

I just did the brownie recipe on the Nestle Chips bag. What I did is also did a cream cheese mixture for it and marbled the brownies. We enjoyed it!
