Well if you answered yes to these two questions, you are officially in my good books. :)
It is my new roomie's birthday tomorrow, so I decided to whip up a nice batch of dense, chocolately brownies.... What women doesn't appreciate a chewy brownie? *Be honest ladies! :)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
-Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 8x8 inch pan.
-Place butter in microwave-safe bowl. Melt in microwave (about 1.5 minutes).
-Stir in sugar and vanilla.
-Add eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each addition.
-Add cocoa. Beat until blended.
-Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat well.
-Pour into greased pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, until brownies begin to pull away from sides.
-Cool completely then cut into squares.
*Makes about 16 brownies.
*This recipe is easily doubled, but be sure to use a 9x13 pan.
