It isn’t fudge
And it isn’t brownie batter.
I call it “Brownie Sludge” because it is a cross between the two.
I invented it one day in my kitchen because my kids always beg to taste my brownie batter. But I never want to feed them raw eggs, so I started giving them the brownie batter *before* adding the eggs.
The consistency of brownie batter before eggs is thick, rich, and fudgy! Soon my husband and I were scooping this stuff out with our fingers, then moving on to very large spoons.
When I’m dieting, I make it from boxed brownie mix by omitting the eggs and the oil and just adding the water called for on the back of the box. This quasi-diet sludge is even thicker!
The next time you make brownies, give it a try, and I guarantee your batter won’t make it into the oven, either! 🙂
