Good Brownies.

This is a great recipe. I got the original from Recipezaar and modified it a little bit; feel free to toss in a cup of chocolate chips, perhaps chopped walnuts or pecans, sprinkle on some powdered sugar or add a buttercream frosting. But these brownies can hold their own without frou-frou additions. Moist yet firm. Just sweet enough. Ah, chocolate bliss!


1 cup canola oil
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs, beaten with fork
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1) In large bowl, beat together oil and sugar.
2) Add eggs and vanilla, and whisk until mixture is smooth and pale yellow.
3) Add flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder; stir until completely combined.
4) Pour into greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, until brownies are set in the middle and pulling away at the edges (and an inserted toothpick tests clean). Cool on rack.
