Brownies with Sweetened Condensed MIlk

Now here is another 'sweet' post, what is happening to me??? I hate sweets and never eat them but this is a super delicious recipe, I think - I kid, I kid.....I did try quite a few pieces and it was excellent, really moist and rich. Maybe it's the Christmas Season that has me baking but I had a great idea of using sweetened condensed milk to make these brownies. Since I don't eat sweets I will be giving away little brownie bundles on Christmas. I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!

1/2 lb. butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 3/4 cups sifted flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup cocoa
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

1. Mix butter and sugar until well combined; add eggs
2. In separate bowl mix baking powder, cocoa, salt and flour
3. Add to the butter mixture; add vamilla
4. Pour half of the batter into an 8x8 greased baking dish
5. Pour in the condensed milk (do not 'swirl' or the condensed milk will burn the bottom of the pan); top with the remaining batter
6. Bake in a pre heated 350º oven for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean
7. Cool slightly, cut into squares and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream

  1. You are amazing! I haven't had breakfast yet and I want to reach through the screen and eat all of these brownies - very creative and clever recipe - and love the use of simple ingredients :) Merry Christmas to you too.

  2. Lets get back to this hating sweats, I don't get it. lol
    Your brownies look amazing.
    I know when I was younger I was not big on dessert but as I have gotten older and now 30 something... well I have certainly grown to appreciate them. Not that it is a bad thing, I wish I didn't crave something sweet every day.
