Basic Brownies:

Who doesn't crave a basic, good, fudge-like, Brownie every now and then? 
Especially one as easy as this! We've been using this recipe for as long as I can remember!
We love it as is or as a foundation for a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some Hot Fudge!!!

2 cups sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1 cup canola oil
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 & 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, cocoa and oil. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Stir in flour, xanthan gum, salt and baking powder; mix well. Spread into a well greased jelly-roll pan or 9x13-inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out nearly clean. Let cool completely before cutting. Store in a large resealable container with wax paper in between each layer.

-When checking to see if they are done, you don't want there to be a lot of batter on the toothpick, but just a little will be perfect. They finish baking while they cool, and still have a little fudgy-ness to them! If you prefer them more cake-like, then bake until the toothpick comes out completely clean.
