Yummy Yummy Brownies

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
2 eggs
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 
out clean. 
Cool in tin on a wire rack. 
Cut into squares. 

*stir through walnuts or raspberries if desired

Recipe derived from 'Cookies, biscuits, bars and brownies' - Readers Digest.
