This is a recipe everyone loves as well. These are like old fashioned brownies. The kind mom used to make. No icing but a nice top to them and rich and moist inside.


1/2 cup of butter
1 cup of white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of real vanilla (artificial if it is all you can get)
1/3 cup of cocoa - this is REAL cocoa. Comes in a tin in powder form. Up here we have Frye's brand. I don't know about the States.
3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking POWDER
1/4 teaspoon of salt

- mix butter and sugar and beat well until fluffy
- beat in the eggs and vanilla
- sift cocoa with the flour, baking powder & salt. Work into the creamed mixture
- stir in nuts if you wish (3/4 to a cup of your favourite)
- spoon this into a 8x8x2 inch pan and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees (F) until the brownies just begin to pull from the sides of the pan. - Cool to room temperature upright in the pan on a wire rack. - then cut into 16 squares and serve!

I freeze these also and they are just as good from the freezer.
