This is one of my Mom’s old recipes that I make all the time, and is one of my favorites. I made these just last night.

Barb’s Best Brownies

4 eggs
2 c. sugar
3/4 c. oil
3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 t. vanilla(I actualy use 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. almond extract.)
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 t. baking powder (NOT soda–soda turns this recipe into something icky)
1 1/3 c. flour

Whisk eggs and sugar together. Add oil and cocoa and mix thoroughly. Stir in vanilla, almond extract, salt, baking powder and flour. Bake in a greased 9″x13″ pan at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until the skewer or toothpick can be inserted and comes out clean.

My brother or I make these whenever we have guests and they are always so impressed even though it takes very little time and effort.

    Wow! These are great.
    They taste especially good to a hungry college student who is home for the weekend.
    Very nice bro!
