Marbled brownies

Thursday, January 15, 2009

One of my favorites. I just made them a couple days ago. I only made a half batch of this recipe because there are only two of us eating. It didn’t hurt the taste at all. They were delicious!

What you’ll need:

For base brownies:

1 c. softened butter
1 ½ c sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 ½ c flour
4 - 6 Tbl cocoa
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

For marble:

5 Tbl softened butter
1/3 c sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbl flour
¾ tsp vanilla
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened

For brownie mixture cream butter with sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix together dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Stir until combined. Spread cocoa batter into a 9 x 13 inch pan. Cream together marble ingredients and drop by tablespoonfuls across the top of the cocoa mixture. Using a butter knife, “draw” lines up and down and across the brownies. This makes the marble pattern. Bake @ 350 degrees for 40 - 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares.

Cost:
butter - $1.75/pound
sugar - $1.99/4 lb bag
eggs - $1.09/ dozen
vanilla - $2.25
flour - $2.12/5 pound bag
cocoa - $1.69
baking powder - $2.38
cream cheese - $2.06
Total - $4.16
