Pam’s Brownies (with frosting)

  • Author: Meagan


Quite similar to these, but my cousin’s wife, Pam, always serves them with the frosting, so why mess with a tasty thing?  Brock said it was too much frosting, and then he had 2 pieces, so you decide.  The batter is easily mixed with a whisk, but I used my electric hand beaters for the frosting, and if you want to always have a stash ready, my sister-in-law, Sabrina has frozen them, iced and everything, and they’ve worked out beautifully – enjoy!



Pam’s Brownies (with frosting)

1 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. cocoa

3/4 c. flour

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 t. vanilla

1/2 c. butter, melted

Grease an 8 x 8 cake pan and preheat the oven to 325.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the 3 dry ingredients, then add in the 3 wet and whisk until smooth.  Scrape the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 1820 minutes until the middle is just set.  Allow the brownies to cool in the pan before icing.



1 1/2 c. icing sugar

2 T. cocoa

2 T. butter, softened

1 t. vanilla

boiling water, by the tablespoon


Carefully try to integrate the first 4 ingredients before turning on your electric mixer.  Add in a splash of boiling water, beat well, and then continue to add boiling water by the tablespoon until your frosting is the consistency that you want – you won’t need much so be careful!  Frost the brownies and then serve them up!
