great easy brownies

Today its all about the chocolate.  The other night I was seriously craving chocolate.  I mean SERIOUSLY.  I thought well, I know I have the ingredients for brownies just need an easy recipe.  So I looked up some recipes online and found one that looked super easy and super good.  You know what IT WAS!  So here is my new brownie recipe. 


1 1/2 c. flour (self-rising or plain with 1 tsp. salt)
2 c. sugar
8 tbsp. cocoa
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/4 c. water
1/2 c. pecans (optional)

Mix all ingredients well. Pour in 11x15 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

We are still eating them... but they won't last too much longer!
