What Should You Do on a Cold Rainy Day?

Here are highlights from the OnSugar blog Cakes Icecreams Tarts And.

That's right, you should bake brownies! 'Cause I'm sure you've already got all the ingredients at home, yeah? Chocolate chips, cocoa powder, plain flour, eggs, butter . . . Okay, now you're ready to go into the kitchen! Anyway, It has been raining since morning and, you know, one gets lazy when it rains. I decided to postpone my study plans till tonight, and to stop being envious of all the bakers who'd been baking recently when I had buried myself among my books, I BAKED!

To see her decadent brownie recipe, read more. The recipe is from Bakeoff-flunkie!
1/4 cup butter
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or 6 oz semisweet baking chocolate)
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  1. Heat your oven to 325ºF. Spray the bottom of an 8-x-8-inch glass pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Put the butter and chocolate chips in a medium microwaveable bowl, and heat on high for 1 minute; stir. Heat for 30 seconds more and stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
  3. Add the sugar and stir until the sugar and chocolate mixture is completely combined.
  4. Add the vanilla and eggs, and stir until the mixture is completely combined.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the baking powder, salt, cocoa powder and flour; mix well to break up any lumps in the cocoa powder. Add to the chocolate mixture and stir until completely combined.
  6. Bake for 26-28 minutes, or until the top of the brownies are flat and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean (you want a few moist crumbs to cling to the toothpick). Cool completely (which I didn't — come on, I couldn't wait!) before cutting to get the best looking pieces.
