These are my families favorite Brownies. The outside edges are chewy and the inside almost fudgy. There is always a battle over the edges LOL They usually fall in the middle so don't worry about that . Bake time is approximate I like to take them out while they are still almost undercooked.


  1. Sift the flour and baking powder into a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Melt the margarine in a saucepan and add the cocoa.
  3. Heat for a minute on very low heat being careful not to burn.
  4. Remove from heat add sugar, flour and baking powder.
  5. Blend well then add eggs .
  6. Mix well add nuts.
  7. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan.
  8. Bake 350 for 20-30 minutes.

Aww, wicky, these are wonderful- chocolatey and delicious! I made these with DS and he really enjoyed helping; he couldn't wait for them to be ready - me either! I used a glass 9 X 9 baking dish and cooked for 30 minutes @ 350 degrees; I did add about 1/2 cup of walnuts, and I will need to make these again...soon and often! Thanks for sharing!

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #32* Oh, Yummy ! haven't made brownies for a VERY long time ! (Won't happen again!) Did not add nuts, personal preference, and discovered as I took them out of the oven, that I had missed the vanilla ! NO problem ! I baked for 25 minutes, and let sit in the oven 5 more -- will likely take them out at 25 next time ! Used 1 TBsp of BLACK cocoa with the rest -- and cut the sugar to 3/4 cup. REALLY good ! Thanks, wicked cook 46 !

Loved...loved these simple, easy to make brownies. They were fantastic...chewy and delicious and gone before I could even take a picture. My dh & friends polished off the rest of the pan, while I was gone for my camera. They were the best brownies that I have tried in a long time...can't wait to make them with nuts. Thanks so much for posting this treasure.
