  1. First you put the cocoa and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Then you melt the butter. To do this, put the butter in a saucepan. Then you take a pot that is slightly larger than the one in which the butter is, fill it with water and put it on the stove. The saucepan with butter goes into this pot and you now wait until the butter has melted.
  3. Beat the eggs until frothy. Once the butter has melted, add it to the bowl with the eggs alternately with the flour, a squeeze of lemon and the baking powder. Finally add the cocoa-sugar mixture.
  4. Now stir everything well with a hand mixer and put the dough in a mold (half a tray) that is either greased or lined with baking paper and put the brownies in the preheated oven at about 180 ° for about fifteen minutes.
  5. Then you can enjoy the brownies, which you first have to cut into square pieces, either warm or cold.
