Pre-Season Favorite Dessert - Cleveland Brownies

As soon as the football season starts our kitchen at Baker Babes Bakery is filled with the wonderful smell of chocolate brownies baking. These chewy delights are a favorite this time of year. Brownies are great for those late season picnics, school lunch boxes, and tailgating parties. The following brownie recipe is delicious with a scoop of ice cream and raspberry sauce. A perfect ending for any dinner party. Give this easy recipe a try and you'll never bake brownies from a box again.

Cleveland Brownies

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
4 eggs
1 cup flour
4 squares semisweet chocolate, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Butter or spray a 9 x 11 inch cake pan

Mix together the sugar, butter and eggs. Add the flour and salt to egg mixture and mix until incorporated. Add melted chocolate and blend in. Blend in vanilla. Add nuts and stir by hand until evenly distributed through out the batter. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes.
