Somehow, I've managed to overlook blogging about brownies. These are my fall-back dessert, when you need something quick and don't have many ingredients in the pantry. Moist, dense and chocolaty they've been a family favorite for years.
1 cup cocoa powder
2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or chocolate chips or both.
Melt butter and sugar over a medium heat until all the sugar is dissolved. Stirring regularly allow to come to the boil. Take off heat and beat in cocoa and flour. Add eggs. Beat until glossy and smooth.
Pour into a well greased baking tray. Press nuts or chocolate into the surface.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
