My old Prince George neighbour Ellen Huget used to make the most delicious butterscotch brownies. I lost Ellen’s recipe years ago and every recipe I tried since was either too sweet or too dense for our liking. That is up until I happened onto a family website and I saw the recipe to these “not-too-sweet butterscotch brownies” by Floyda Mabel Steiner McClure. Oh my, I think I found Ellen’s butterscotch brownies! Floyda’s recipe called for dusting with icing sugar and ice cream. I put a caramel icing on the top, because that is how Ellen used to serve hers. Well if truth be told Ellen also put in currants, but I didn’t dare put that into an afterschool snack. Apple slices on a separate plate and “nothing touching” is as far afar I can venture. With many thanks to the McClure family for sharing their heirloom butterscotch brownie; Floyda’s butterscotch brownies are nothing short of perfect.
7/8 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup salted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla

1 batch caramel icing
