Fudge Walnut Brownies Recipe

I've tried numerous brownie recipes, but this recipe is the best by far. A well-known baker in our town generously shared the recipe with me.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:60 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts
  • FROSTING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 3-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Additional chopped walnuts, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in walnuts.
  • 2. Spread into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 325° for 40-45 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched.
