Chocolate Fudge Brownies
With or without pecans, these fudge brownies are terrific.
With an electric mixer, cream the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture, blending well, but do not overmix. If you are using pecans, stir them in.
Spread the batter into an ungreased 8-inch square pan or baking dish. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool completely in pan before cutting into squares.
Makes 16 2-inch-square brownies.
