Pan of fudgy brownies made with oil (not butter)

Fudgy Brownies with Oil

This recipe is not mine. I copied it from...I don't know where! I've searched and searched through cooking mags and cookbooks and can't find where I found it (remember, I write in my cookbooks, so I can see if it's The One). It's driving me up the wall. It has to be here somewhere! I didn't think I found it from a library book, but maybe I did. If YOU have this recipe too, and know the source, PLEASE let me know. It's a pet peeve of mine to hop on a food site and then see that the author pretends all the things are their creation. I really hate that. This ISN'T my invention. I'm just a big fan.
