Old-fashioned brownies are based on the recipe from the 1952 edition of “Joy of Cooking”. My family loves this cake and calls it “the best brownie we ever ate”. These “fudge squares” (as they were also called) are irresistibly chewy and delightfully chocolatey. This is as a result of the recipe using a significant amount of butter and real chocolate. The preparation is very quick and the batter should be baked in a shallow (9×13 inch) pan. The cake is not tall but it produces a natural crust. When it is cold, it needs to be cut into squares. The original recipe suggests 1 x 2 inch bars (54 in total).

Chocolate pecan banana bread is by far the best type of banana bread I have ever had. Surprisingly, it is lighter and less sticky than typical banana bread and, in my opinion, more flavorful and elegant-looking. In this recipe, there is a good balance of chocolate and nuts. Using half the amount of nuts than chocolate benefits the overall palette of this cake. Pecans can be substituted with walnuts with a slightly less mild taste. Additionally, rum can be added to spice it up a little, although many people will prefer it more mellow in taste.
