Tracy's Brownies

When I visited my cute sister Tracy in Texas, she whipped up a batch of her delicious brownies. I suggest combining these scrumptious chocolate brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a spoonful of seasonal fresh berries! Yummy!
Make the brownies
1 cup + 3 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup baking cocoa
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a sauce pan melt butter. Remove from the heat. Stir in cocoa, cool.
In a large bowl beat eggs and sugar.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture.
Stir in vanilla and the cooled chocolate mixture; mix well. Tracy likes to run the kitchen-aid the whole time in speed 2. She says they seem to turn out better that way.
Spread into buttered 13x9 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 25-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. (do not over bake)
Make the frosting
1 cube of soft butter
2-2/3 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4-1/3 cup milk
Mix everything together, except the milk.
Gradually add the milk.
Turn your speed on high. You will get fluffy frosting when you do this. Yum!!!
Tracy likes to put the frosting on right when the brownies come out, so they soak up the goodness!
