    Default REC: Brown Sugar Brownies

    I'm reposting this from several years ago. Some here may remember it, but
    they're so good I thought I'd post it again for those who may not have
    tried them.

    The recipe is one I bunged together in an attempt to duplicate those sold
    by the now defunct Hough Bakeries in Cleveland. I'd say is 99 and 9/10
    percent accurate. :-)

    Also known as blondies. Try adding some white chocolate chips!

    Not the same thing to me. The toasted wheat germ and the penuche frosting
    was what made this unique. Uh, I really hate white chocolate, but I
    wouldn't add them even if I did like it. Sorry, just my taste, but thanks
    for the thought, Merry.

    I guess these are a little different, but they remind me of them. I am
    on the same page as you when it comes to white chocolate, but some
    people might like the addition.

    I'll grant you thre are similarities, but the texture of these is really
    different. I really loved them from the bakery and was excited that I was
    finally able to recreate them. Of course, you're right that some people
    might like the white chocolate addition.

    Yes, alas, after several changes in ownership they filed for bankruptcy in
    1992. Kraft Foods bought the name and the recipes, but have never put
    either to use, AFAIK. The savory pies were also wonderful.

    What about that weddding cake?

    Lynn, did you see my other response about Rod McKuen?

    We were married in ND but went to see John's extended family a couple
    of months later. They of course had a reception/open house. the
    "wedding cake was a spice cake with dates and nuts and a cream cheese
    frosting - delicious! The "real" wedding cake in ND was chocolate with
    white icing and real roses. First chocolate wedding cake I ever saw.
    (1973).

    Both were good, the spice cake was better!

    Hough's date-nut spice cake was a favorite of most people. Many folks
    would order one for a birthday cake. I can certainly see it used as a
    wedding cake. It was delicious.

    I bet your chocolate wedding cake was beautiful, as well as delicious. In
    1973 I doubt that most people had gotten past white, white, white. <g>
