½ cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs    --> ½ cup apple sauce + 1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup flour
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon baking powder


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.

2. In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.

3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.


     1. If I were to make this again, I would make it earlier in the year when it wasn’t as cold outside because it was hard to get the fire started and once I did get it started I ran inside to warm up and wasn’t able to monitor its progress properly. It was also hard to move my hands because it was so cold, so getting the coal onto the Dutch oven with tongs was difficult.

     2. For greasing the pan I just brought little plastic bags of flour and shortening, I was also able to flip the bag inside out to spread the shortening so my hands didn’t get icky.

     3. Using apple sauce as an egg substitute gave the brownies an unpleasant taste, so I would probably try using sprite if I did it again.
