Wife, Mummy, Nurse: C is for Cocoa Powder

C is for Cocoa Powder

Three things I enjoy:
Chocolate :)
I have not been posting my alphabet series on Mondays.  Oops.  Hopefully, I'll get into the swing of it and be more diligent about it.  I picked cocoa powder because "Chocolate is a woman's best friend."  Hope you enjoy the brownie recipe.

At one of my bridal showers about two years ago, those who came were supposed to bring a treasured recipe.  One of the attendees brought a recipe for Oatmeal Saucepan Brownies; on the card she wrote, "The only brownie recipe our family ever uses-even better the second day!"

2/3 cup butter
1 1/3 cup sugar (I usually just use 1 cup and they are sweet enough; I plan on cutting the sugar back some more)
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup quick oats
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Melt butter in large saucepan.  Add sugar.  Beat in eggs one at a time, blending well.  Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.  Add to butter mixture.  Stir in oats and vanilla.  Bake in greased 9-inch square pan 25-30 minutes.
