Cook The Books

While the Library is closed, join Aimee as she moves our popular Cook the Books program to her kitchen for a very special "Pantry Edition" every other Friday! 

Cook The Books meets every other Friday at 10 AM, via Zoom. Visit the library’s events calendar to register for the next meeting.

Preheat oven to 300 and grease 8x8 pan. (9x9 works too, just decrease cooking time by 5 minutes.)


4 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 t salt
2 t vanilla  
1 1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup flour

(If you have instant coffee or espresso powder add 1 teaspoon. You can also add 1 cup of toasted nuts. Don’t want to toast them, just sprinkle them on top of the batter before baking. Really like chocolate, add 1 cup of chips. You’ll get a nice shiny top.) 


1) Beat eggs until pale.
2) Add both sugars and melted butter, salt, and vanilla. Mix well.
3) Add cocoa and flower, mix until just incorporated.
4) Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
