Easy Melt N Mix Brownies

needed something quick and easy to "take a plate" last night to the trivia night, plus some for gifts, so gave this recipe a try - definitely a keeper! made one batch with pecans and one batch with white chocolate chips.

thanks Lynnie!

250g butter
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence

Melt butter in a saucepan large enough to mix all ingredients. Mix in cocoa. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. Add eggs and beat well using a wooden spoon. Sift flour and baking powder into mixture. Add vanilla essence and mix to combine. Pour into a greased 20 x 30 cm sponge roll tin. Bake at 180 C for 25 - 30 minutes or until brownie springs back when lightly touched. Cut into bars while still warm. Ice with chocolate icing if desired.

Variation: Mocha Pecan Brownie
Add 2 tablespoons instant coffee powder to mixture with cocoa. Mix 1/2 cup chopped pecans into brownie with flour.

that sounds so good! And a darn sight quicker and easier than snails and fairy mushrooms. Fiddly little things.

snails and fairy mushrooms sound a bit tricky for me ;)
