No mixer required, in fact it turns out better if you don't use a mixer at all.
1/2 cup plain flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
125 grams butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 large eggs
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 180 degrees c
Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder into a medium sized mixing bowl
Melt butter in a saucepan and mix the sugar in until fully melted/combined
Pour the butter/sugar mix into the dry ingredients and mix with wooden spoon until all combined. Add eggs, walnuts, vanilla and stir until totally combined.
Pour into tin/pan greased and lined with baking paper, bake for 30-40 minutes until top is crunchy.
Leave to cool for 20-30 minutes and then cut into desired squares.
Dust with icing sugar and store in airtight container for up to 5 days (I put mine in the fridge or freezer, they last longer)
