  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Melt 1 cup butter in a large saucepan. Add 2 cups light brown sugar and beat well to mix. Cool the mixture slightly, then beat in eggs and vanilla.
  3. Sift together all-purpose flour, salt and baking powder. Stir it into the wet ingredients, then add the nuts. Mix well.
  4. Spread batter in a greased 11 x 7 x 2-inch pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a light gold. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out of pan and let brownies finish cooling on a rack.
  5. To Make Frosting: Disolve coffee in the water. Cream 1/2 cup butter with confectioner's sugar. Beat it until light. Beat into the sugar mixture. Spread over the brownies. When frosting has set, cut brownies into squares. Enjoy!

Just like Gramma used to make! I made a few changes though: halved the recipe, used only one egg (I suspect if I had made the whole recipe, 2 would have worked), left out the walnuts, and added ...

These brownies ARE as good as the initial description. Many of brownie recipes I've used in the past have the potential to turn cakey if you bake them too long. Try five minutes less the next ti...

I read all the reviews first and was thinking, it should be ok- I like my brownies a little cakey. It wasn't a little though, it was practically cake. I followed the recipe exactly, cooked for 3...

First of all, these are not brownies. They taste like a flattened cake. It was not even a good tasting cake.

This is the best recipe for butterscotch brownies I've ever tried. Others complain that they are too cake-like, but that is what I like about them. Other recipes I've tried puff up on the side...

Delicious! I also used only 2 eggs, and got a nice, chewy brownie. I also halved the recipe (so, actually, I used 1 egg) and baked it in an 8X8 and it turned out great. I slightly undercooked...

This receip came out HORRIBLE!!! It was more like a cake rather than brownies. I was very disappointed. In fact I threw out the whole thing!
