Brownies are my very favorite sweet treat. I bake them all the time. So naturally I had to try these Lunch Lady Brownies that I saw all over Pinterest.
Because what’s the only thing better than a brownie? A brownie with frosting. And these brownies are covered in a wonderful chocolate icing.
These are my very favorite kind of brownie- fudgy, chewy, and oh so chocolaty.
You’ll have a hard time not eating 2 or 3 or even 4 or 5. They are that good. It’s a classic recipe you will want to make over and over again.
Supposedly this recipe was originally from a lunch lady in Idaho- hence the name Lunch Lady Brownies. The recipe dates back about 50 years, proving it has stood the test of time. It’s a simple recipe made from just butter, cocoa, flour, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
If you haven’t tried this recipe before, you’ll find they are definitely a keeper.
For the cake:
- 1 cup of butter.
- ½ cup of cocoa.
- 2 cups of flour.
- 2 cups of sugar.
- 4 eggs.
- 4 tsps of vanilla.
- 1 cup of chopped nuts.
- You’ll Need (for the icing):
- ¼ cup of softened butter.
- ¼ cup of milk.
- ¼ cup of cocoa.
- 3 cups of powdered sugar.
- A dash of salt.
To make the cake, mix all the ingredients together and pour the batter in a 9×13 pan.
In a preheated oven to 350° bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
Once the cake is done, let it cool a bit and prepare the icing.
Mix all the ingredients of the icing together and frost the cake as you like.
Easy, peasy and sweet! This cake is amazing. When I made it to my family, they all went crazy over it! You should give it a shot it’s worth it.
