Recipe by redplaid huf
READY IN: 30mins
SERVES: 12-16




  • For Brownies: In mixing bowl or food processor blend well, butter, sugar, cocoa, eggs and vanilla.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add to cocoa mix.
  • Bake in greased 8x8 square pan for 20-25 min at 350.
  • Make them gooey-moist by taking them out just after the middle has puffed up or risen (which is the only way!) Leaving them in longer will give you a cake-like brownie.
  • Meanwhile make icing.
  • Allow to cool before icing or you can dust with icing sugar (shaken through a sieve).
  • They are even good naked.
  • For Chocolate Butter Icing: Cream butter with cocoa and 2 cups of icing sugar.
  • Beat in 2 tsp vanilla, 2 TBSP milk and 1 cup of icing sugar.
  • If needed, gradually add 1-2 TBSP milk until desired spreading consistency.
  • Makes enough icing for 2 batches of brownies.
  • Will keep in the fridge for a week.
