Cuisine: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 2 squares unsweetened chocolate (Grammy uses Fleishmans, we used whatever was on hand)
  • ⅓ cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Melt chocolate and shortening in a double boiler over hot water. Take off heat and add sugar. Add eggs when mixture has cooled a bit. Mix dry ingredients together then add to the wet ingredients. Mix in ½ C broken (wal)nuts. (Since it was Mother’s Day, Nate left these out for me. Because we all know how I feel about walnuts.) Spread in well-greased, 8”³ X 8”³ pan.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for ~20-25 mins.
  3. There will be a dull crust when almost done – take out. You also want your fork or toothpick to come out clean.
  4. Cut when cool.
