Now this may seem like a contradiction of terms, but, here you can get your brownie fix, but without the chocolate. I know, I know…without chocolate? Why would you want to do such a thing? No chocolate..pshaw! But really, these are scrumptious!
1/2 butter (oh please don’t use margarine, blech)
1 Tbsp milk
1 c firmly packed light brown sugar
1 c unbleached flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350* F. Prepare 8x8x2 inch pan. (grease, butter, spray, whichever)
Combine butter and milk in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir and heat until butter melts. Then remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. Add egg and stir until well blended.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir this into the sugar mixture. Stir in the vanilla. Now spread it into your baking dish.
Bake at 350*F for 27-30 minutes. Until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan then cut into squares.
Yum! Rich, buttery, non-chocolatey goodness!
