Fudgy Vanilla Brownies

Fudgy Vanilla Brownie

I made this yummy cake/brownie for Bunco this past week.  The name of the recipe is kind of misleading because it contains no fudge or vanilla (unless you decide to add it) but it is extremely good no matter what it’s called.  It comes from a blog called “Capturing Joy with Kristen Duke”.  It makes a huge pan so would be great for a large gathering.


2 cups flour

2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup butter

1/2 cup sour cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon almond extract


1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

3 cups powdered sugar

1  Preheat oven to 350.

2  Grease and flour jelly roll pan, 15 x 10″.

3  Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in large bowl.

4  In small saucepan, combine butter and heavy whipping cream and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

5  Add flour mixture, stirring to combine.

6  Stir in sour cream, eggs and almond extract then pour into pan.

7  Bake 22 – 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

8  While letting cake cool, make frosting by combining all frosting ingredients.  (I added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla to frosting.)

9  Spread warm cake with frosting.  (I topped it with some Pampered Chef Sweet Honey Vanilla Sprinkles.)

  1. These really look good. I love your Christmas Card. Thank you for thinking of us. I have shown it to all the boys. You look so tiny next to your family. Merry Christmas. Alice and Cliff

    • Hi Alice, thanks, yes, I am the shortest of the bunch and that’s ok. Hope you and Cliff are well. Let me know if you get to Utah at all this year, would love to see you.
