Everyday Cocoa Brownies

Mr. Frugalfish was the most efficient Valentine. He made brownies for me using cocoa, not the chocolate squares. I think of these as everyday brownies because they do not require fancy ingredients.

Everyday Cocoa Brownies

½ C. + 2 Tbsp. Butter

6 Tbsp. Cocoa

1 C. Sugar

2 Eggs

½ tsp. Vanilla

¾ C. Flour

½ tsp. Baking Powder

½ tsp. Salt

½ C. Chopped Nuts, if desired

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Heat butter and cocoa in 2 quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted; remove from heat. Mix in sugar eggs and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread in greased 8x8x2 inch pan. Bake until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan, 30-35 minutes.
