Butterscotch Brownies – 2 Maids a Baking

My mom always made these brownies for us when we were growing up. 
They are a fav around here!
Start by melting your butter. 
Add your brown sugar.

Remove from heat and stir in eggs.

Add salt and baking powder.

Mix in flour. I added 1/2 cup wheat flour and 1 cup white flour because my mom told me too!!

Last but not least add the vanilla. 

Spread in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.

Bake and cut while still warm!
