I started making brownies from scratch a couple of years ago and this one is easy and yummy. :) It is a versatile recipe! I put a variety of different chips or nuts in or on top of it. I use it for any recipe that calls for brownies.\
- 1 2⁄3 cups granulated sugar
- 3⁄4 cup baking cocoa
- 1 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons water
- 3⁄4 cup butter or 3⁄4 cup margarine, melted
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- chocolate chips, if desired
- nuts, if desired
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Grease 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
- Combine dry ingredients in large mixer bowl; stir.
- Add wet ingredients and stir well.
- Spread into prepared baking pan.
- Bake for 18 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out slightly sticky.
- Enjoy! :).
In my 76 years, I've never made brownies from scratch before. Followed the exact recipe including chocolate chips and nuts and what a wonderful surprise. They are the best moist and chewy brownies I've ever had. Made them for a Birthday dessert because no one wanted cake. Everyone had seconds and then took the leftovers home with them. So easy to make, will never use a box again. I'll definitely be making these many times in the future.
Just what I was craving! Super yummy! I was a bit skeptical of this recipe after reading the reviews, but it comes out just as descibed if done right. The batter will feel much more like dough, and will need to be plopped into the plan and spread rather than poured. It will seem very thin before baking, but it rises quickly to about 1 inch (perfect size for me). I only needed to bake mine for a little under 20 minutes before it was completely done. Note: The brownie will seem cakey if you cut and eat it right away! For the perfect chewy brownie, you must wait for it to cool completely. Wait atleast another 10-20 minutes before cutting. The colder, the chewier. Great recipe, I will definitely be using it again!
Best brownies I've ever tasted! I didn't have quite enough cocoa, so I substituted chocolate chips for the balance. Now, if I can just refrain from eating the entire pan in one sitting. Haha! Just kidding ... sort of. ;-)
