When it comes to spreading cheer around the holidays, we spent some time thinking about what we could give you. With 2020 being a bit of a wild ride for all of us, we wanted to give you something good. And while it would be nearly impossible to send you all something from Flathead Lake Lodge, we wanted to give you the next best thing: the recipe for Maureen’s Undone Brownies.

If you’ve been a guest of the lodge, you’ve likely dug into one of these chocolate delights during your stay, as they are staple during our Wednesday night steak fry. From us to you, we hope you enjoy this “sweet” gift.



-4 cups butter, melted

-1 pound of unsweetened chocolate

-8 cups of sugar

-16 eggs

-5 1/3 cups of all-purpose flour

-8 teaspoons of vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease desired baking dish (we suggest a large sheet pan or two).

Melt chocolate and butter. Remove from heat and add the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Gradually whisk in the flour. Pour into greased baking dish and bake for approximately 20 minutes (or until the sides begin to pull away from the edges of the pan).

Allow the brownies to rest for 15 minutes. Cut, serve and enjoy!

From our family to yours, we wish you the sweetest holiday season and a very Merry Christmas. May it be full of making new traditions, honoring old ones and a season of beautiful memories.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, from our family to yours.
