How to Make Fudge Brownies

  • To prepare the mix:
  • Put all the ingredients, except the shortening, in a large bowl.
  • Mix with a spoon until uniformly blended. Cut in the shortening, using either a pastry blender or your fingertips, until the mixture looks like chocolate cornmeal.
  • This makes 8 cups of mix - enough for 4 pans of brownies.
  • Seal tightly in a plastic bag or jar and store at room temperature.
  • To make the brownies:
  • Put the eggs and vanilla essence in a mixing bowl and beat slightly. Stir in the butter.
  • Lightly spoon two cups of the mix into the mixing bowl. Do not pack the mix when measuring.
  • Beat well with a spoon to make a somewhat smooth batter and stir in 1/2 cup chopped nuts, if using.
  • Spread onto a greased and floured (8 x 9 x 2 inch) pan. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan, then cut into squares.
