Worlds Best Brownies About 30 minutes
1/2 cup butter or margarine melted
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder like Hershey's
1/4 teaspoon baking powder* see note
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup nuts optional
1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips optional
Heat oven to 350 degrees F Grease 9-inch square baking pan. In a mixing bowl add the butter, sugar, vanilla, mix with a fork, add the eggs and mix again. Mix the flour, salt baking powder then add this to the egg mixture until well mixed, spread into the greased pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the brownies pull from the sides of the bowl.
Helpful Hints 1. *if your at a high altitude I am at 6000 feet, you need to cut the baking powder in half, it will keep the brownies from sinking while they bake. This works well for all cakes 2. the longer you bake the brownies the dryer they are so if you like soft brownies cut down the baking time.
Options 1. Frost with frosting and serve about 16 pieces 2. Mix with chocolate Ice Cream on your Chilzstone and compete with Ben and Jerrys and enjoy.
