Baking Brownies

Yesterday Miss Two informed me that we haven't baked anything together since she was 5! Miss Two has only been 6 for two weeks, but she made it sound like an eternity since we have spent any time in the kitchen together. I guess two weeks is a very long time when you are 6 years old, so baking some brownies seemed to be the best way to remedy the problem!

Brownies

1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Blend melted butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl. Add eggs; using a wooden spoon, beat well.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually blend into egg mixture.
Spread in greased 9-inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until brownie begins to pull away from the edges of the pan. Cool and frost with Creamy Brownie Frosting. Cut into squares.

Creamy Brownie Frosting

3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk

Cream butter, cocoa, corn syrup and vanilla in a small mixer bowl. Add confectioners' sugar and milk; beat to spreading consistency.
