I’ve figured out a way to make brownies that please everyone in my family. One of my children does not like chocolate, so I mix up one batch of butterscotch brownies and one batch of chocolate brownies and put them on either side of a 9 X 13 pan. The baking time and temperature are the same for both recipes!
Melt ¼ cup margarine in microwave or saucepan. Add 1 cup brown sugar, 1 egg, ¾ cup flour, 1 tsp each baking powder and vanilla. Nuts are optional
Combine thoroughly ¾ cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 5 Tbsp cocoa, ½ cup margarine, 1 tsp vanilla and 2 eggs in a mixing bowl. Again, nuts are optional.
Bake side by side in a greased 9 X 13 pan at 350 F (325 if using a glass pan) for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into squares when cooled about 30 minutes.
