Nice and Easy Brownies

Tried this recipe yesterday - was looking for a non cakey type of brownies recipe. This one tastes nice - very, very easy to make and mine was ready in the oven after 20 minutes (make sure never to overcook your brownies!) Nice and not too cakey - but still not the kind I'm looking for. Anybody out there with a good non cakey brownie recipe, feel free to contact me!

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8x8 or 9x9 inch
baking pan. In a medium bowl, beat together the butter and sugar. Add eggs, and mix well. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the vanilla and stir in walnuts if desired. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are firm. Cool before cutting into squares.

halwafy: finally tried out this recipe. I first tasted it warm and I found it quite dry... (maybe I put too little butter?) Then, I tasted it again when it had cooled, and it was ok! My sis and sis-in-law said it tasted nice.
