Streusel-Topped Brownies

Happy Friday to all!  Fall is COMING!  I’m so so so excited.  Image

Since I have a bit of time off…please come over to cook and bake with me?  This week’s small victory was the ponytail.  I have been able to haphazardly stuff my hair inside a rubber band without help.  Hooray!  Another victory?  Streusel-topped brownies.  Probably a larger victory than the hair…but don’t tell my physical therapist that.


Streusel-Topped Brownies

Adapted from Hungry Girl Por Vida 

Makes 9 brownies


For the streusel:

3 Tablespoons melted, unsalted, butter

6 Tablespoons sugar

3 Tablespoons cocoa powder

2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

tiny pinch of cinnamon

Stir together all ingredients until they form a kind of chunky topping.  Refrigerate while you make the brownies.

For the brownies: 

10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 1/4 cups sugar

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla

2 large, cold eggs

1/2 cup flour


Preheat oven to 325F. Grease an 8×8 pan.

Combine melted butter with sugar, cocoa, and salt.

Stir in the vanilla and add eggs one at a time, stirring vigorously.

Add the flour and mix until incorporated.  I don’t use a mixer so I mixed everything until smooth and combined.  Scrape the batter into the pan and evenly top with streusel. Bake for 25-35 minutes until toothpick comes out pretty clean.


With love,
