from the kitchen of the Brownie Queen (my mom)
1 c. melted butter
2 c. sugar
1/4 c. cocoa
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. flour
Combine all ingredients and mix by hand with a wire whisk. Pour into a 9 x 13 glass baking dish sprayed with no stick cooking spray. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar while still warm, or cool and top with chocolate frosting.
