27. A really easy and wonderful brownie recipe

"We Don't Need No Stinkin' Brownie Mix" (because this is so very easy)

For one 8 or 9 inch pan

1 stick of butter (you can use margarine if just think you have to but butter makes all the difference in the world)
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of cocoa
1 1/2 tsp of vanilla
3/4 tsp of salt

You can also use unsweetened chocolate instead of the cocoa. Use 4 squares and melt it with the butter.

Use a large microwavable bowl and melt the butter. Mix in the cup of sugar and pop it back into the microwave for about 30 seconds. This helps give the nice shiny top that looks so cool. (if you happen to not have a microwave, melt the butter on the stovetop in a large saucepan)

Let this cool down just a bit and beat in the eggs with a nice heavy whisk. Stir in the cocoa, then the flour. Stir until you can't see any white streaks. Now add the vanilla extract and salt.

If you want nuts, you can add up to a cup of chopped walnuts or pecans.

Grease the pan (I line mine with parchment paper which is a gift of the gods) and pour in the batter

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes...check them at 15 to see if they are done because you don't want to overbake these. They are supposed to have a very dense texture and are very fudgy.
