Cocoa Bars

This is another good Beverly Nye recipe. So many of my favorites came from her cookbooks! It's simple to put together. It is a cake style brownie but I always bake it as a regular cake. It's one of those recipes that is just as quick as a cake mix but has no additives.

Frost with a favorite chocolate icing (I use the one on the back of Hershey's cocoa).

Cocoa Bars

Beat together:
1 stick butter (room temp)
1 cup sugar
1 egg

3/4 cup sour milk (buttermilk or regular milk with a little vinegar poured in--about a teaspoon)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Then add:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa (I now use 1/4 cup with great results)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 taspoon salt

Mix well...pour into a greased 9 x 13 dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Let cool before icing.

I'm not Mormon, either, but I love Beverly Nye's books (and attitude!), too. I have 2 of her books. All of the recipes I've tried from them have turned out well, and I can't say that about many cookbooks.
