Patty's Decadent Brownies

This recipe comes from my sister by love. Patty makes the best brownies that I have ever tasted! My family happens to agree. She made brownies and tried a differant recipe, they were good as well but we all told her she was NEVER allowed to do that again.... :^). It is a tried and true recipe loaded with goodness like butter and whipping, how can that be bad?

I made a 9x13 pan by doubling the recipe. How ever the original recipe is for a 8x8 and that is what is posted.

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup cocoa, sifted
  • 2/3 cup flour, sifted
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  1. Cream together sugar and butter. 
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. 
  3. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan. 
  4. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Do no over bake.
Creamy Icing:
  • 3 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 tbsp. whipping cream
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • Icing sugar
  1. Whip the butter adding cocoa powder and the whipping cream until smooth.
  2. Add in enough icing sugar to make a thick but spreadable icing.
