Bisquick Brownies

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
4 eggs
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.

    The texture you were speaking of you probably need to add 1/2 cup of vegetable oil or melted butter to achieve it. It’s the fat that gives brownies the moist body and crunchy topping.
