I have a wonderful missionary friend who requested that I post this recipe. I’m planning on making these again this week for the family, but I must admit, I’m not looking forward to it. You see, I’m trying to lose weight and these things are SO scrumptious. They are very hard to resist. So, to all of you who don’t have to worry about it, I hate you and here you go. (Okay, I really don’t hate you. That was just a joke. :] lol! )
6 eggs (yep, SIX eggs!)
1 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 cups sugar (uh-huh, that’s a LOT)
1 T. vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups cocoa powder
2 tsp. salt
In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, butter, oil, sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients, and mix well until blended. **Valerie’s note: The batter will be extremely thick. You will think you are mixing concrete, but you are not. Also, if you leave a few little bits of unmixed cocoa powder (like I did) it should be okay. After all, my arm just couldn’t stir forever. Plus, I didn’t want to over mix it. End of note.** Thank you. 🙂
Spread the batter evenly in a greased 9×13 pan.
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over bake.
Now you can make something delicious and get in your arm workout at the same time! These really are to die for, but please don’t. I’d miss you. 🙂
