Solar Baked Brownies

Brownies are a classic treat that almost everyone loves.  It’s easy to buy a boxed mix, stir it up, pop it in the oven, and have hot, homemade brownies in half an hour.  But it is also very easy to stir up the brownies from scratch.  Most of the ingredients are already in your kitchen.  So on a hot summer day, try this recipe.  You’ll surprise everyone with a delicious dessert.  And the best thing is that you will not have heated up your kitchen.

Solar Baked Brownies.

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup walnut or pecan pieces (opt)

Pre-heat the solar oven while mixing the ingredients.  (Be sure your brownie pan fits in your oven.  Otherwise, you may need to adjust this recipe for the size of your pan)

Melt the butter or margarine in the solar oven.  When melted, add the other ingredients and mix well.  Bake in heated solar oven about 1 1/2 hours or until pick comes out clean.

(For regular oven, bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes in a 9 x 13 inch greased pan).

  1. To make things go faster, this is an ideal recipe to use for stacking pans. Gonna try this for the Midtown Market and see what develops. Worst comes to worst, I’ve got a lot of brownies to enjoy! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Come visit when you can.

    • I agree that using stacking pans is great. I do it often not only with brownies, but also with cookies. Stacking pans definitely maximizes the space in the oven. Hope you have a successful day at the Market this week.

  2. oh, we love brownies as much as we love chocolate chip cookies.

    Now I have an idea as to what to do!

    thanks for the recipe!

    We’re having a blast getting used to our new oven!
