Quick Easy Brownies!

Now that Christmas is over... try out this simple brownie recipe. I love brownies! This easy recipe is very quick to whip up and produces a great brownie, fudgy in the middle with a nice flaky crust on top. A lot of brownie recipes want you to melt chocolate for the mixture but this recipe cuts that step out and they come out just as good! This is also a great base brownie recipe to play around with and add in anything you can think of. Last time I added in mini marshmallows and they all rose to the top, roasted and melted into the brownie mixture, it was like a s'mores brownie. I have a special brownie mix-in that I am working on and will share with you in the new year.  Share in the comment section any ideas you might have for mix-ins. Enjoy!

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup plain flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350F/175C. Grease a 9x9 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in eggs. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; gradually stir into the egg mixture until well blended. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the brownie begins to pull away from edges of pan. Let cool on a wire rack before cutting into squares. 




  1. they look so fudgy and yummy! not to mention easy! will do this sometime...

    happy new year Mike!

  2. These look niiiice! On my baking list! =]

  3. I'm glad I came back and had another look at this recipe. I assumed it required melting chocolate. I have used just unsweetened cocoa powder in cakes before and prefer the less sweet flavour. I have some dates left over and wonder if adding finely chopped dates would work. They might sink, but sprinkled on just before baking might work?
    Your clear pictures and advice inspire me to try the recipes : )
