Perfect Cocoa Brownies

1 stick of butter, melted
1 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 c. cocoa
1/2 c. flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8×8 pan. (If you double this recipe, which works well, use a 9×13 pan.) Mix together the melted butter and sugar, then add the eggs and vanilla, mixing well with a spatula. Add the remaining ingredients, mixing well. It’s okay if the batter is a little lumpy. Spread batter into prepared pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes (more if you doubled it in the larger pan). If you mix these up as a children’s message in church, baking them during the sermon, final prayers, and closing hymn/song, they will be warm and finger-lickin’ good for coffee hour after worship. (Get another adult to take charge of the baking part.)
