Big Batch of Brownies

My mom has made these brownies many times to feed our family and friends.  When you have teenagers that go through tons of food this is a winning recipe!  These brownies are a go-to recipe for bake sales and benefit auctions.  A large 12 x 17 baking sheet is the perfect size for this recipe.   This is a very cost effective dessert that doesn’t sacrifice quality or flavor in any way to feed big groups on a budget.

I love how delicious these homemade brownies are, yet they only take about ten minutes to mix up.  Only common ingredients that I always have on hand are needed.  We only had chickens on our farm for a short while but my grandparents would often give us extra eggs.  This is also the perfect recipe for using extra eggs!  

My husband has a cousin who is a chicken farmer.  They just built a new barn with state of the art technology to help care for thousands of laying hens.  Joe’s cousin and his wife work together with other family members to take care of chickens and pack eggs every day.  The chicken farmers have a big family and lots of eggs, so I imagine this would be a great recipe for them.

This is one of those recipes that would be nice to have a bigger mixer, but my 4.5 quart Kitchen Aid mixer works fine.  I just have to be careful not to run it too fast since the bowl gets pretty full.

Another nice touch to the brownies is using my OXO sifter to add a nice even layer of powdered sugar on top.  I purchased the sifter with an Amazon gift card that I got for my birthday and I love it!  Garnishing with powdered sugar isn’t required, but it is an easy way to dress up these basic brownies.
