Don't Buy Boxed Brownie Mix

Make these instead!  This particular recipe for brownies is just as easy as making brownies from a box and it doesn't taste in any way like a cardboard box.

Our Favorite Fudgey Brownies

1 cup melted butter
2 cups sugar
3/4 c cocoa
2 t vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt

Combine melted butter, sugar, and cocoa powder.   Stir in the eggs and vanilla making sure the eggs are thoroughly mixed in.  Fold in flour, salt and baking powder.  If you are picky you can sift your flour, salt and baking powder together before you add them to the batter, but I never do and my brownies always come out perfect.  Just dump in the flour first; then put the salt and baking powder on top of the flour.  They'll all stir in just fine.   When the flour is mixed in, pour the batter out into a greased 9x13 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Let them cool for about 10 minutes before you attempt to cut.

These take less than 5 minutes to mix together by hand.   This is the perfect brownie recipe.   You can make it from ingredients that are in everyone's pantry.  They are fabulously chocolatey and fudgey.  It's easy to mix together and it's pretty cheap to make.
