Super Easy, Yummy Brownies

I have not done Tasty Tuesday the last few weeks, but I have really wanted to get back and participate because I love a good recipe swap!

Now speaking of things I love, I love a recipe that is not only tasty, but EASY! Remember I have 3 little kids! This brownie recipe will dirty only one bowl and one 9 x 13 inch pan. I even have a greasing the pan trick to combine it with melting the butter for the recipe! The brownies are super yummy, in addition to the easiness!

Now that I have this recipe I always sign-up to bring brownies when attending a church or school function -- quick with minimal mess!
Yummy, Minimal Mess Brownies

2 cups white sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Melt the butter or margarine by putting it in the 9 x 13 inch pan you plan to bake brownies in and setting the pan in the oven for a few minutes as it pre-heats.
2. Mix ingredients in a mixing bowl in the order given. When you add the butter, pour it from the 9 x 13 inch pan into the mixing bowl while slightly tilting the pan side to side, making sure that you have coated your pan with butter residue = a greased pan with no fuss!
3. Pour batter into 9 x 13 inch greased pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes.
4. While waiting on brownies to bake, stand back and marvel that you only have one bowl to clean!

The basic recipe is from here is the link but above I included my small changes.
