The BEST Brownie Recipe - goodbye Betty Crocker!

 I have tried SO many brownie recipes to try and find the perfect brownie recipe for my sister.
She's a boxed brownie fan and it seemed like nothing as going to steer her from Betty Crocker. 
You see, she's the Goldilocks of brownies.

These ones are too cakey
Those ones aren't dense enough
They just aren't the same

But you know what? these brownies are jusssssssssssssssssssst right!
I finally came up with the best brownie recipe and Betty Crocker got the boot!

These brownies are super simple to make and only require a mixing bowl. 
It's a small batch recipe, making 16 small or 9 large brownies so feel free to double it! 

The Best Brownie Recipe
also known as the only brownie recipe you'll ever need 
makes 16 small/9 large brownies

115g butter, melted 
1C brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2C flour 
1/3C cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 180*C/350*F
Grease and line 9x9'' brownie tin.
Combine melted butter, brown sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
Once butter mixture is cooled slightly, add eggs and stir until mixed through
Mix in flour, cocoa powder and baking powder until well combined.
Pour into tin and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer removes clean.

This brownie recipe is super simple to adapt, 
I added Reese Peanut Butter Chips but you can add nuts/chocolate/chopped candy bars or whatever you fancy!
They're delicious on their own or with a creamy chocolate frosting on top - it's up to you! 

So tell me - your dream brownie, what's it like?
Chewy? Fudgy? Cake-like? Nut filled? Super rich?
