Brownies with Chocolate Frosting

These are still my all time favorite brownies.
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup good quality unsweetened cocoa (Sharffenberger)
3 large eggs
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350F.
Melt butter. Add the sugars and cocoa and blend well. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. sift the flour and baking powder into the mixture and stir. Add the vanilla and nuts. Pour into 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Center will be firm but not hard. Cool.

1/2 cup soft butter
1 cup confectioners sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoon milk
2 Tablespoon hot coffee
Place butter, sugar, and cocoa in a food processor and blend for 4 seconds. Add vanilla, milk, and hot coffee and blend until smooth. Additional milk will make a thinner frosting.
