The best part about my mother making brownies when I was a kid? I got to lick the spoon and bowl.
But I always hated it when she’d use a spatula to scrape the bowl clean leaving almost nothing for me. I would just sat there with puppy dog eyes looking like someone had stolen all my christmas presents. I watched her pour every last drop into the pan and give me a nearly clean white bowl with no gooey goodness left.
But remember, I was a rather chunky child. So sometimes when my parents were gone, I would mix up an entire bowl of brownie mix. I never bothered to preheat the oven though, because I ate the whole thing with a spoon. A good idea in theory but not in practice. The stomach ache made me pay for my gluttony.
