Karen’s Grandmother’s Brownies

1 stick butter
2 squares unsweetened chocolate (if you don’t have unsweetened chocolate squares:  3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder plus one Tablespoon oil make ONE square)
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Melt the butter and chocolate squares together.

Beat the eggs and slowly add the sugar.

Pour butter/chocolate mixture into the eggs and sugar and mix.

Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix well.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 mins. Cool. Dust with powdered sugar or frost with chocolate frosting.


Note:  I didn’t have unsweetened chocolate squares so I used the cocoa powder mixed with oil.  It came out just fine.  Made these today so that Dean would have a nice warm treat when he came in from clearing our 24 inches of snow.
