Chewy Bread

Have you ever found yourself in need of a quick treat to take to an event, or to serve after lunch or dinner? I'm often in this situation but just as often, I don't feel like making the mess of a baking project.

Chewy Bread is the answer! It's a no fuss, little mess, delicious bar-style dessert that takes about 5 minutes to assemble and about 30 minutes to bake. It only uses one bowl and NO MIXER which means that cleanup is over with way before the Chewy Bread comes out of the oven. It's a keeper.

Here's what you'll need:
{Printable recipe here}
1 stick (1/2 cup) melted butter
2 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Here's what to do:
Preheat oven to 300º and spray 9x13 pan.
Melt the butter in a large mixing bowl. Add brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. 

Add the self-rising flour and stir again to combine well.

Pour into a sprayed 9x13 baking pan and bake at 300º for 30-35 minutes. 
While Chewy Bread bakes, take five minutes and wash the tools of your trade...

The Chewy Bread will fall a bit when cooling, it is supposed to, that's what makes it chewy. Allow Chewy Bread to cool completely before cutting into squares.
Pair with a hot cup of tea or coffee if you wish, but Chewy Bread tastes especially good with a tall glass of cold milk!

Do you use light or dark brown sugar?
