Simpatico: Vegetable Oil Brownies

Simpatico

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Vegetable Oil Brownies

Ok, so I didn't have any margarine or butter and couldn't force myself out of the house last night to get some but I wanted turtle brownie sundaes. Yes, I had pecans, caramel, and ice cream, just no butter or margarine. Haha, well my priorities are straight!!

So I did a little search and found a recipe which I adjusted to suit my needs (and my pantry items). My dessert was lovely... how could it not be? Brownies + ice cream = nirvana!

Vegetable Oil Brownies
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2/3 cup vegetable oil (divided)
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
In a large bowl, stir together the cocoa, 1/3 cup vegetable oil and boiling water. Mix until well blended and thickened. Stir in the sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 cup oil. Finally, add the flour and vanilla; mix just until all of the flour is absorbed. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
