I have so many fun memories of this recipe in my youth. I started making it when I was a teenager, all my friends would come over after the church dances on the weekends and we’d make this recipe! It is so easy and fast to make I had it down to a 10 min’s from start to in the oven!
Once my friend Corey and I were working so fast that one of us forgot the baking soda… NOT GOOD. A case of too many cook’s in the kitchen. But that was a one time error.
The first time I made this recipe for my husband he was complaining about it, is it a cake? is it a brownie? Then he proceeded to eat at least 2/3rd of the pan! HA! These never last long and everyone loves them.
