This is a recipe for blonde brownies that my mom always used to make when I was growing up. I remembered them being bites of yummy gooiness… although mine were a little more cake-like than I remembered. I think I beat the batter too long.
Anyway, it’s a very simple recipe:
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pecans (optional)
1 cup coconut (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix sugar and Bisquick. Make a hole in the center and put in eggs and vanilla. Beat well, stir in coconut & pecans. (This step, I left out, of course, since my youngest is allergic to both). Bake in greased and floured 9×13 pan for 30 minutes.
And, why yes, that IS a new RED Kitchenaid mixer strategically placed in the shot. It was my Christmas gift to myself. Perhaps that’s why the batter was a tad overbeaten.
Still, they were quite yummy, and the pan was demolished in one afternoon.
