Fudge Brownies

I baked these brownies last night using a recipe from Hillbilly Housewife. My family thought these were the best ever. Enjoy!
Fudge Brownies
1 cup melted margarine (2 sticks)
2 cups sugar
4 medium eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/4 cups flour
First off, don't be tempted to put baking powder or baking soda into this recipe, thinking I have forgotten to list it above. This recipe does not call for any leavening other than the eggs. This is the secret that makes them chewy and fudgey. There is another recipe for
Cake Brownies which does call for baking powder, if that's really what you want.
So, first melt your margarine (I do it in the microwave). Next get out a large bowl and combine the margarine and sugar with a spoon or whisk. Add all four eggs, and beat the mixture until it is sort of fluffy and emulsified. Add the salt, cocoa, and vanilla. Stir up really well. Add the flour. Stir again until the mixture is thick and chocolatey. Turn the batter into a well oiled 9 by 13-inch pan. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool before serving. Cut into 32 small squares.
