Countdown to Christmas Menu

It’s the last Wednesday meal of 2016 at Calvary Lutheran Church, and it’s going to be a good one.  The best part is what comes after dinner.  In the worship service at 6:30, we’ll be treated to singing by all of our Wednesday school children up through 5th grade.  A wonderful live nativity will bring Christmas to life and remind us why we celebrate the season.  Please join us for dinner between 4:45 and 6:15 and stay for worship.

Here’s the recipe for the brownies we made today. The smell of warm chocolate was just heavenly while they were baking.


Calvary Lutheran Brownies

Make 3x for 576 brownies (12 half sheet pans).  Each batch makes 4 half size sheet pans.  Cut brownies 8×6


3# unsweetened chocolate    (Total: 9#)

4 ½# butter     (Total: 13 ½ #)

34 eggs     (Total: 8 ½ dozen)

9# sugar    (Total: 27#)

2 oz vanilla    (Total: 6 oz)

3#  flour, sifted    (Total:  9#)


Using 3 separate saucepans, melt 3# chocolate and 4 ½# butter in each, melting carefully over a pan of simmering water.  Do not exceed 110*.  Remove from heat and cool to room temp.

In 3 large bowls, combine 34 eggs, 9# sugar and 2 oz vanilla in each.   Using mixer, whip each batch separately until thick and light in color.

Blend 1/3 of the egg mixture into the chocolate/butter to temper it, then fold in the remaining egg mixture.

Weigh 3# flour into each of 3 large bowls. Gently fold the flour into each batch.

Bake at 325* convection for 25-30 minutes or until firm to touch.
