My first post, a crowd pleaser, is Yummy Yummy Brownies (otherwise known as classic brownies). I have made these quite a few times now to the delight of those around me - they are so easy. A checkered fabric napkin and glass of ice cold milk are essential when enjoying this chocolate-y treat.
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup plain flower
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (if desired)
1/2 cup frozen rasberries (if desired)
In a small bowl, combine oil and cocoa until smooth; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat sugar and eggs.
Add cocoa mixture and vanilla to sugar mixture.
Combine flour and salt; gradually add to mixture until moistened.*
Pour into a greased 20cm square baking tin; sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Bake at 160*C for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted near the centre comes
Cool in tin on a wire rack.
Cut into squares.
*stir through walnuts or raspberries if desired
