Recipe: Grandma's Brownies

These brownies have the perfect consistency - they are not too dense or fluffy. They have a moist cake flavor and are a hit with people of all ages! They firm up a bit in the days after, so it's great to grab on the go in days to come.
Note: You can also add nuts and/or raisins.

  1. OMG. i should totally try this once we run out of Indian sweets :)

  2. Wow these look yummy. One thing I really wanted to ask you was how on earth do you remove a cake from a bundt pan?? I bought this nordic non stick 12 cup bundt pan and have absolutely no idea how to do it. It always breaks into so many pieces. I remember the coffee cake in your earlier posts and it looked so perfect. Did you use shortening??

    1. You can slather butter and then dust flour over it, and then pour the mixture in. I always do that even when it is non-stick. It just pops out when you flip it over!
      I let it cool down first, then put my hand in a mitt to hold it and then flip it.

  3. Can this be made in a microwave oven?
