Bradford Brownies

These brownies are slightly cake like but still dense and have a very rich cocoa flavor. This is my favorite homemade brownie recipe that I have tried. We call them Bradford brownies because my husband got the recipe from a friend with the last name Bradford. They are WAY TO EASY to make when you get a chocolate craving and they turn out perfect every time. Serves 12

1 cup melted butter (can also use 1/2 cup, 1 stick, and they will turn out fine)
3/4 cup cocoa powder
4 eggs, room temp
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1.5 cup flour
2.25 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350. Combine cocoa powder and melted butter. Add eggs and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients then combine with wet ingredients. Spread into a 9X13 greased pan. Bake 20-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
