"Katharine Hepburn's" Fudge Brownies

Okay, I don't even remember where I got this recipe from, but it's been our family's favorite brownies for years. They are SO yummy and easy to make. Not sure if the recipe actually comes from Katharine Hepburn, but that's the title on my recipe card. There was a lady in my neighborhood a very long time ago named Pauline Balls, and I think this recipe may have come from her...
"Katharine Hepburn's" Fudge Brownies

1/2 cup butter
6 Tbsp. Cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional (I like pecans)

Mix butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, cocoa, and salt. Add flour. Add nuts. Bake in a greased 9x9 square pan at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. They will still be "doughy" inside when the toothpick comes out clean and the top and edges are crisp. Let them cool for at least 20-30 minutes (if you can!) so they can firm up a little, otherwise they fall apart (which doesn't really matter if you're adding them to some vanilla ice cream, right?)
You can also double this recipe and put it in a 9x13 pan.

"If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased". ~ Katharine Hepburn


  1. Yum! Those look so fudgy and delish!

  2. ummmm....just made them. I don't think I can wait the suggested time to cool though :)

    1. Ha ha, Sandra, me too!!! I always end up eating them warm and they fall apart in my hands. I hope you liked them :)
