best EVER brownies


 Okay.... so I know there are a ton of great brownie recipes out there. We've all had that rich chocolatly goodness that you couldn't say no to and let me tell you... these I definitely couldn't say no to that I so much as had to get rid of them... so off to work they went.   My coworkers couldn't have been more pleased!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was filled with attempting to solve the case of the missing shirt!  I had just recently bought this great top.... well I guess I didn't think it was so great after all since I'm attempting to return it.  Well I think the top must have known and decided to hide it self and wait for the return limit to expire because I can't find the thing anywhere!  I have looked every odd place even...yes... in the cracks of the couch (I'd thought I'd look).  It's spooky I tell ya.

back to the brownies

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
150g dark chocolate
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup of pecans

Preheat oven to 350 d.  Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  Melt the chocolate and butter over a double boiler of barely simmering water. Remove from heat and let cool a little.  Add the sugar to the chocolate mixture, stir in the vanilla then the eggs, one at a time. Fold the dry ingredients into the mixture, then gently fold in the pecans and coconut.
Put into a prepared 8in pan and bake for 25-30 min.

When you call these brownies the best, how could I not download the recipe for later?! They look totally delicious. Great consolation to ease the pain of your missing shirt. Hope it decides to turn itself in soon!

Did you find the shirt in the end? I think it must have definitely senses that you wanted to return it and - getting scared - it is hiding in the dark corners of your house...:) lol... love the brownie recipe! Sounds great and they look fantastic!

These brownies look great! And, they have coconut inside! I'm gonna make them this weekend, yummy :-)!

PS: You will definitly find the shirt when the return limit has expired ;-). These kind of things keep happening to me too ;-).

Oh no, not a missing shirt! I had a missing pair of pants once, LOL.

Anyway, your brownies look delish! I like the triangles too.
