A basic brownie recipe that is quick and easy to mix up and calls for ingredients that are usually already on hand.
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs and vegetable oil together until well blended. Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; stir into the egg mixture. Fold in walnuts if desired. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean. Allow to cool. Cut into squares.
