Cake-Like Brownies

  • 1/2 cup margarine (1 stick)
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 tablespoons tap water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

First melt the margarine. I do this in a glass mixing bowl in the microwave, but you could do in a small pan on the stove, and then pour the melted margarine into a big bowl. Add the eggs, tap water and sugar. Mix very well. Add the cocoa, salt and vanilla and mix again. Finally add the flour and baking powder and stir until smooth. I do all of this mixing with a whisk, but electric beaters, or even a big spoon would work too. Turn the batter into a well oiled 8-inch square pan. Bake at 350F for about 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. These are best frosted I think. The recipe is easily doubled and baked in a 9 by 13-inch rectangular pan. Some people prefer this type of brownie to Fudge Brownies. Personally I don’t, but everyone has their own taste.
