Kerry Concedes in Stolen Election.

Best Ever Brownies:

4 oz. (1 stick) salted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa, sifted after measuring
1 cup plus 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup walnuts, in small pieces

Use 8 inch square baking pan. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put rack in center of oven

In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat butter for half a minute or so, then add the sugar and beat until well mixed.

Beat in eggs.
Add sifted cocoa and mix until smooth.
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, then and to bowl and mixing bowl and beat at medium speed for 2 Minutes. This is the critical step.

Add water and vanilla and mix in.
Gently blend in Walnuts. Dough will be stiff and sticky. Spread the dough evenly in the baking pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until top is set and toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for at least 15 minutes before trying to frost or serve. They are delicious plain, too.
