Amish Brownies

This is something I never saw until recently. It is not the typical chocolate brownie.


3/4 cups butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs, separated
1 tsp black walnut extract
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup chopped chocolate bits
1 cup coconut

Cream together butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar and white sugar. Add flour, baking powder, salt, egg yolks and black walnut extract and mix well.  Press evenly into a greased 9x13" pan. (You may save some time and energy later  by putting foil in the pan first and spraying it first with nonstick spray before putting the brownie mixture in the pan.)   Beat egg white until frothy. Add 1 cup brown sugar and mix well. Spread evenly over batter. Sprinkle nuts and chocolate bits and coconut evenly over egg white mixture.

Bake at 325 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  Cool and lift foil with bars out of pan and cut into bars.  Serves approximately 24-36 brownies.
