2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa
4 eggs
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preparation:

1. Cream shortening, butter or margarine with sugar until well blended.

2. Add the cocoa and mix until smooth.

3. Add eggs and mix until fluffy.

4. Stir in baking powder and salt.

5. Add water alternately with flour and whip until fluffy.

6. Fold in nuts.

7. Turn into a greased, waxed paper-lined jelly roll pan, 15 1/2-by-10 1/2-by-1-inch.

8. Bake at 350°F for 30 min. or until brownies feel firm when touched on top.
