the joy of brownies...

(this is a photo of my little brothers torturing my poor parker. can you believe uncles could be so mean?)

growing up, my brothers and i had our pasta from scratch, our meatballs from scratch, our christmas cookies-ALWAYS from scratch.
that is just how things were made.
but never brownies. if we actually had them, they were from a mix.
in fact, i don't think i knew you could make brownies from scratch until i met chris and his mom made them that way.
now i know different.

chewy brownies
1 2/3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
2 T water
2 large eggs
2 t vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups of flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt

preheat oven to 350 and grease 9x13 pan.
combine sugar, butter and water in large bowl. stir in eggs and vanilla. combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl. stir into sugar mixture. spread into pan
bake for 18-25 minutes (lean more towards 25). cool and cut.

for those of you from philly, this is where we got desserts that weren't home made.
for those of you not from philly and haven't had this...
you haven't lived.

You wrote 3/4 baking cocoa, and I assume you mean cup, but wanted to double check before I try to make them. Love you posts, by the way. I'm torn between guilt and motivation by your enthusiasm.
