The Brownie King

I told my boys I'd make brownies this afternoon & promised they would be ready so they could have one before bed. N didn't care as he doesn't eat brownies - yet. I can't seem to get him to try one as I know he'd love them! J & B are the ones who really like them. Well, apparently, I was not moving fast enough for B & he feared not getting said brownies before bed so he offered to make them - for the very first time! I told him to go for it. The child is going to be 11 in just about a week. He mixes & cooks pancakes at his grandmothers so I figured he could handle the brownies.

Adding the eggs (which he cracked himself)...

Doing the mixing...

Proud baker having pulled them from the oven (with a bit of help from Mom)...

Testament as to how we all felt about them!

I'm pretty sure B is now the Brownie King & will be in charge of all the brownie baking. Time to teach him to make congo bars (tollhouse cookie bars) next I think!

PS: Bob, don't worry, I decided not to post the photos of you & the boys wrestling. If anyone sees some odd comments from an anonymous poster, don't worry, it's just my hubby. He kept telling me he was reading the blog so I told him to leave a comment from time to time so I'd know. :-)

  6. Our 10 yo ds also loves to bake. he doesn't really like to cook that much, but he does like to make muffins. I'm sure brownies would fit right in there.


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
