The other day Elder Jeff asked for a brownie recipe. The first one I sent him didn't work, because he can't get chocolate chips in Uruguay. (That's pretty sad.) However, this recipe does work for him.
Note: Here's the first recipe, the one using chocolate chips.
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan. In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.
