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
1/2 cup plain flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350F/175C. Grease a 9x9 inch baking pan.
- 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.
- 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.
