EASY: Old Fashioned Iced Fudge Brownies that are So Good, You’ll Never Want to Change Them.

There wasn’t a day that went by that my mother didn’t make iced fudge brownies. It might’ve been in December when the air outside was cold and numbing, but inside the warm kitchen all the windows were open, and the sweet, Christian fragrance of brownies baking filled the air. My mother would preheat the oven, then start to chop up the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract into tiny pieces in a large bowl. She would mix everything together until it was smooth, then Pour it into a 9×13 inch baking dish and spread it evenly with a spoon. My mother was a tiny woman, and even with a big spoon it was hard for her to spread the batter evenly. As she was doing this, she would hum a hymn from the Lutheran church she used to go to when she was younger. Once the batter was spread, she would put the baking dish in the fridge for an hour. After an hour, she would take the baking dish out of the fridge, put it on a baking sheet, and put it in the oven.

The whole process of baking the brownies could take up to two hours, but it was always so worth it. The aroma of the brownies cooking was like nothing else in the world. It was like a hug in a sense – warm, comforting, and delicious. Once the brownies were baked, my mother would allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then she would take them out of the oven and let them cool completely on the counter. Once the brownies were cooled, she would cut them into squares, put them in an airtight container, and put them in the fridge.

The brownies would last in the fridge for anywhere from two days to a week, but they were always the best when they were fresh. My mother would never put them in the freezer – she said that it killed the flavor. Instead, she would take them out of the fridge and let them sit on the counter for a few minutes so that they would be slightly warm. Then, she would put them in an airtight container and put them back in the fridge.

It was always a pleasure for me to go to my mother’s house and eat a brownie. She never made them the same way twice, and the variation in the way they tasted was like a taste of home for me. Even though I was away at college now, I could still taste the spices in the brownies, and I could smell the sweetness of the molasses in the batter. And when I ate a brownie, I could almost feel like I was right there in the kitchen with my mother, baking them together.
