Fudgy Brownies

If you need a good brownie recipe, look no further. These brownies are the best! I have to give a lot of credit to wonderful ingredients. I use a high quality dark chocolate cocoa powder with a natural high fat content. I also use my new favorite pantry staple: Vanilla Paste. You can purchase this vanilla paste at many food specialty or spice stores. It is the consistency of honey and contains the wonderful center of Madagascar vanilla beans. These brownies are moist and topped with the best frosting. I like to frost my brownies while they are warm so the frosting melts and becomes part of the brownie. Be warned, a pan of these fudgy brownies will not last long in your house!

Fudgy Brownies
1/2 c butter
1 c white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

3 Tbs butter, softened
3 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbs honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 c powdered sugar
1 Tbs milk

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour an 8" square pan and set aside. In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, vanilla. Beat in cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 F for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overbake!

To Make Frosting: Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Frost brownies while they are still warm.
