The Super-Secret Recipe File: Shavon's Chocolate Stuff

OK, this one is from "The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love". The author recommends that you double the recipe, then there'll be enough. I agree...

2 eggs       1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of flour       1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 stick (4 oz) of butter       2 heaping teaspoons of Hershey's cocoa
1 teaspoon of vanilla       Pecans (optional)

Beat the eggs with the sugar and the flour. Add the salt. Meanwhile, in the microwave heat the butter with the cocoa and stir well. Add to the egg mixture, and add the vanilla. Add nuts if you like.

Pour the mixture into a greased loaf pan and place the pan in a pan of water. Place it into the oven at 300 degrees for 40-50 minutes. When the top looks/feels crusty, it's done.
