1/2 a cup of butter ( 125g ) - melted
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
3/4 cup s/r flour
1/3 cup of cocoa powder
Mix butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs with a spoon.
Add the flour and cocoa. Add chopped nuts / dried fruit if desired
Pour the mixture into a greased and lined square cake tin
Remove from the tin when cold and cut into squares with a sharp knife.
* Make sure the lining goes up the sides for easy removal when baked.
* I quite often make a double batch. I add some nuts to half the mixture and the other half is left plain. Both batches have the choc bits.
