3/4 Cup butter
1-1/2 Cups sugar
1/4 Cup dark rum
1/2 Cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
3/4 Cup flour
1/2 Tsp baking powder
1/4 Tsp salt
1/2 Cup pecans or walnuts
Cream together butter and sugar.
Add the rum and 3 eggs, one at a time.
In a separate bowl, combine together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt.
Then add the dry mixture to the first mixture.
Stir just until all particles are moistened.
Pour into an 8-inch square greased pan, sprinkle top with nuts.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees F.
The center part of the mixture should be slightly under cooked when taken out of the oven, but it will cool a moist and fudgy consistency.
