Great Brownies

This recipe has been in our family for many years. Any time we have a pitch-in or pot-luck, I am asked to bring these brownies.


4 squares bitter chocolate (about 12 ounces)
1 cup butter
4 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 cup unsifted flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup chopped pecans


In a saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat until melted. Let cool about 10 minutes.

In a bowl, beat eggs until lemon colored. Add sugar and mix well. Add melted butter and chocolate; mix well.

In a separate bowl combine unsifted flour, salt and baking powder. Mix into batter. Add extracts and pecans. Mix well.

Pour into greased 9x13-inch pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Brownies should be moist. Cool and cut into squares.
