Recipe: Fantastically Fudgy Brownies

What is almost as abhorred in the baking world as someone presenting yet another chocolate chip cookie or banana bread recipe?

Another brownie recipe. But before you moan and groan, since that's exactly what I have for you today, please refer to the signature crackly crust and rich, fudgy interior of said brownies (presented above). This recipe is worth giving a try!

Lots of brownie recipes end up dry and fluffy, like bar-shaped chocolate cake, but this one is like bakery brownies or (good) boxed mix brownies! It's the only recipe that I bother with anymore and for good reason - bring these to a party and you won't have to worry about how to store the leftovers. There won't be any!

Here's the recipe - it's a one bowl recipe, so clean up is super quick and easy, too!
Fantastically Fudgy Brownies
Makes 16 brownies

* 1/2 c. butter
* 1 c. white sugar
* 2 eggs
* 1 tsp. vanilla extract
* 1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
* 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
* 1/4 tsp. salt
* 1/4 tsp. baking powder

1) Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Grease and flour an 8"x8" pan.

2) In a large pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Remove from heat.

3) Mix in the sugar, eggs, and vanilla, until well combined.

4) Stir in the cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder with a heavy wooden spoon. Don't overmix or you'll get a cakey brownie!

5) Pour evenly into the prepared baking pan.

6) Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. Don't over-bake! It might not look completely through, but will set further as it cools.

You want it to look like this - rich, chewy, slightly sticky - so don't over bake or it will be too dry and hard!
7) Cool completely, then cut into 16 bars. Enjoy!
