The Best Brownies EVER

I am not sure where this recipe originated. It is the recipe I grew up on, and helped my mom bake, when I was little, but I am not sure where she got it from. The first time I got to bake by myself (it was a big deal to me- I made my mom and dad wait in the living room..)I switched the amounts for the sugar and salt. Let me tell you, never has there been a saltier brownie than that poor pathetic batch. My dad actually ate some so I wouldn't feel bad, but man were they terrible! When they cool, the top gets a crust that breaks when you cut it, and the inside is moist and fudgey...I promise, they will not disappoint!

1/2 cup veg. oil
1 Cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Blend oil, sugar & vanilla. Add eggs, beat well. In a separate bowl, combine flour , cocoa, baking powder, salt. Gradually add the dry mixture to the egg mixture, until well blended. Spread in greased (just spray with Pam)8 or 9 inch pan. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until bownies pull away from the side of the pan.

Do yourself a favor...DOUBLE this recipe and bake it in a 9x13 pan! They will disappear fast!
