taking the cocoa out of a brownie recipe??

hi hounds,

need some advice here ...

i made a brownie recipe recently that i quite liked. (pasted recipe below).

what would happen if i replaced the cocoa powder with the equivalent amount of flour and scraped in a vanilla bean into the batter?

i know this sounds crazy but i'm NOT a huge chocolate fan ... in fact, i could give it up quite easily. HOWEVER, i really liked the way this brownie turned out - texture was nice and light (i hate dense, fudgy brownies) and i really liked the 'crunchy' top.

any ideas???



3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
3/4cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease an 8×8″ square pan.
Melt butter in microwave.
Beat eggs with sugar, and add vanilla. Slowly add melted butter.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes
