standby brownies "the donna hay way"

Sorry its been a while i have been busy packing and running around for the big trip.... Yesterday was a miserable day on the Gold Coast- cold, wet and windy!!! So i of course was craving something warm and chocolatey so i flipped through fast, fresh, simple looking for the standby brownies i saw a couple of weeks ago on the show. I didn't feel like going any where so i was stoked when i had all the simple ingredients for these delicious brownies.

150g Butter
1 1/4 cups Caster Sugar
3/4 Cup Cocoa
1Tsp Vanilla Extract
3 Eggs
1/2 Cup Plain Flour

"the donna hay way":
Preheat oven to 160 degrees. Place the butter, sugar and cocoa in a saucepan over low heat and stir until the butter has melted. Spoon into a bowl and add the vanilla extract and eggs, whisking well. Sift the flour over the mixture and whisk to combine. Spoon the mixture into a 20cm- square cake tin lined with non stick baking paper. Bake for 30-35mins or until centre is just set. Cool in tin and cut into squares to serve. Makes 16.

I followed everything donna hay said to a tee and these brownies are so fast, so simple and so YUMMMM. When i have children i will be whipping these up all the time for after school treats, the aroma in the house when they were cooking was mouthwatering and homey who wouldn't want to come home to that? I served the brownies warm with raspberries and ice-cream. Score 8/10 it would have been a 9 but i think it needed some hot fudge hehehe.
