"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Karen S. Galt


1/2 c. melted butter
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 c. flour
1/3 c. cocoa
1/4 tsp. baking powder

3 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp cocoa
1 tbsp light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. powder sugar
1 to 2 tbsp. milk
1/4 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350. Blend butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Add eggs; combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Spread in greased 9-inch square baking dish and bake for 15-18 minutes.

Directions for frosting:
Cream butter, cocoa, corn syrup and vanilla. Add powder sugar and milk; beat to spreading consistency. I like to put the frosting on the brownies while the brownies are still hot! Yummy!
