Nutella Spiked Brownies

It has just been one of those days...well, yesterday was actually. I'm writing this on Tuesday.
Monday lived up to it's hype, I guess.
I really wanted brownies...
     because it's Monday
          because I'm a girl
               because I went to the gym earlier
                    because J's car is making a weird noise---again
                         because I need to replace my 5 year old camera (Yes, five years!)

So to satisfy my craving, I wanted super chocolatey, delicious brownies to make it go away...for at least thirty seconds while I savored the flavor at least. I know I shouldn't look to food to make my day better, but it does work...sometimes. And at least I let out some of the stress in the kitchen while I was mixing up this concoction. I used my great-grandmother's (Mommaw) recipe for chewy chocolate brownies and made it my own with lots of additions and substitutions. Here's another recipe using these brownies as a base: Brownies w/ Peanut Butter Frosting

My Facebook friends begged and pleaded for the recipe, so this one has been moved to top of the "things to post on blog" list. Here it is, friends, here it is...

6 Tbl cocoa
1 Tbl canola oil
1 Tbl spiced rum
1/4 c butter
1/4 c nutella
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 Tbl flax seed + 3Tbl water (or 1 egg)
1 tsp Dr. McGillicuddy's Vanilla
1/2 c flour (I used half whole wheat/half white)
  • Mix cocoa, oil, and rum. Set aside.
  • Thoroughly cream butter and sugar.
  • Add egg, flax, and 3 Tbl water and beat well.
  • Blend in chocolate, vanilla, and flour. 
  • Pour into greased 8x8 pan. 
  • Bake @ 325* for 30 minutes
