Just a good ol' basic scratch brownie recipe.

These brownies are good on their own without frosting (which is how I like 'em), but here I've included a frosting recipe in case you prefer to frost your brownies!

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

35 Min

Ingredients

1 c
butter, melted
2 c
sugar
2 tsp
vanilla
4
eggs
1 c
flour
3/4 c
cocoa
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1 c
chopped pecans, optional

FROSTING, OPTIONAL

1 1/3 c
powdered sugar
2 Tbsp
cocoa
3 Tbsp
butter, melted
2 Tbsp
milk
1/4 tsp
vanilla
1/4 c
chopped pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9" pan.
2
Stir together butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs and beat well. Add other ingredients, beating until well blended.
3
Spread into greased pan. (To make removal of brownies easier, you may opt to line your pan with foil, then grease the foil. Once the brownies are finished and frosted, remove from pan by lifting out by the edges of the foil before cutting.)
4
Bake 30-35 minutes or until brownies start to pull away from sides of pan.
5
Let cool. Frost, if desired, by combining all frosting ingredients except pecans and spreading over cooled brownies. Sprinkle pecans over top of frosting.
