  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Mix the sugars in the melted butter.
  • Add the eggs to the butter-sugar mixture one at a time, beating after each addition.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter-sugar-egg mixture and stir until well-blended. The mixture will be thick. Pour in the vanilla extract and mix to blend.
  • Transfer half of the batter to another mixing bowl. Into one portion, stir in the cocoa powder.
  • Using two ice cream scoops of the same size, drop the two batters alternately into a 5"x9" baking pan forming a chess board pattern. Dip a pointed knife into the batter on one corner of the pan, drag to the opposite end, make a U-turn to return to the opposite direction... do this until you have covered the entire pan. Turn the pan 45 degrees and repeat.
  • Bake in a preheated350F oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted at the center comes out dry but with a few fine crumbs clinging to it.
  • Place the baking pan on a wire rack and cool completely.
