Butterscotch Brownies


This is one of the first real 'hits' in my baking repertoire; a recipe inspired by one I found in the first cookbook I got when I was married, and has been passed along to all of my family members and lots of friends. And now I pass it on to YOU.

  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 cup packed brown sugar NOT demerrara. Best is Domino's dark brown or similar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips optional


Heat oven to 350°F/175°C. Mix brown sugar and oil. Add vanilla and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread in 9x13 pan. Bake 30 minutes. Cut into about 2-inch squares while warm.
(Note: I don't always cut while warm. If baked just right it doesn't matter but a bit too long in oven and they will harden a bit when cool making it harder to cut).
