Best Brownies

When I made the "fat-free" cookies for me the other day, I made these brownies for the kids. It's great because you can mix it all in the saucepan with a wooden spoon. No need to pull out the mixer. These are fudgy.
½ c. butter
1 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa
½ c. flour
¼ t. salt
¼ t. baking powder
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease & flour an 8-inch square pan. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes. Stir in sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Beat in cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
