These are so chocolaty and moist, you will never want another kind of brownie. Luckily, they are really easy to make!
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 stick melted butter (let the butter cool a bit so it doesn't cook the eggs)
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Grease an 8x8 baking pan - grease well
In a medium bowl, mix oil, butter, sugar and vanilla
Beat in eggs
In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt
Gradually add flour mixture to the wet mixture. Stir until just blended.
Stir in nuts if using.
Spread evenly in prepared pan. Use a good spatula. The mixture is very fudgy...
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out almost clean. Do not overcook.
Let cool completely before trying to cut into squares. Seriously - take my word on this.
I find that 1 inch by 2 inch pieces satisfy just fine. They are very rich and filling.
And if that is not enough, you can top with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge ;)
