Here is my favorite brownie recipe—enjoy!
½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
¼ teaspoon baking powder
⅓ cup cocoa powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1½ teaspoon of espresso powder (I use King Arthur)
½ cup flour
½ cup chopped walnuts
1 cup chocolate chips (I use Godiva)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix oil and sugar until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; stir just until blended. Mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Stir dry ingredients into the oil/sugar mixture. I use a sifter to make sure there are no clumps. Add chocolate chips and walnuts.
Pour into greased 9 x 9 square pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the sides just start to pull away from the pan. Cool completely before cutting.
Note: I double this recipe and use a 9 x 13 pan. If you double it, the cook time will be around 30-40 minutes depending on the oven. Turn the light on and watch it! You don’t want them too done, they will be dry!
