This is my favourite recipe for making brownies from scratch. It is really easy.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup nuts (optional)


3 tbsp. butter, softened
3 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. honey or corn syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup icing sugar
1 to 2 tbsp. milk

Heat Oven to 350 degrees
Grease square 9 x 9 x 2 in. pan
Mix together butter, sugar and vanilla
Add eggs, beaten
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt
Blend flour mixture into butter/sugar mixture.
Stir in nuts and spread into pan. Bake for 20 to 25 min. or until brownies pull away from pan.
Cool, then frost.

Frosting: cream butter, cocoa, corn syrup and vanilla. Add icing sugar and milk and beat to desired consistency.

Watch them quickly disappear!
