I logged into this website for the first time in over 4 years to rate these brownies. They literally are THE. BEST. BROWNIES. I've been making the recipe for years, following it perfectly, and I've never been disappointed. I do always double the recipe and bake by checking every couple minutes. <br/>There are brownies on this website with more ratings than these, they're not as good. Make these now. :)
I followed the recipe except didn't have vanilla extract. Came out great! Gooey & a shiney flaky top. Those who said it was cake like changed the recipe. They are not cake like at all. Just don't over cook! I doubled and baked at 350 the for 30 minutes. So easy my 3 year old mixed everything after I measured it for her. So even without vanilla, they are great. I know the oil seems like a lot, but its needed. They are brownies after all, not supposed to be good for you.
These really might be the best brownies! They are really good and the perfect mixture between cake and cookie. Just one thing: I knew when measuring that half a cup is way too much oil. I used one fourth cup and they came out fine. And of course, you can substitute actual melted chocolate for the cocoa powder.
chocolate heaven right here!! this is my go to brownie recipe! sometimes ill use melted butter I always add 1/2 cup cocoa powder and sometimes I throw in some chocolate chips or chopped up Reese cups!
Was the best homemade brownies I have ever made, nice and fudgy on the inside and the perfect flaky outside, I added a tablespoon of peanut butter and only half the vanilla. I also made a double batch in a larger pan, absolutely perfect!!!
I baked these brownies for the first time today and they were SOOO good! My family polished them off within five minutes and mind you, they are all very picky eaters. HEAVEN IN MY TUMMY, LITERALLY!
Didn't get to finish my review! To the individuals saying that they were too thin, you must be doing something wrong. I also used an 8x8 and mine were perfect! Maybe try incorporating your dry ingredients a little better to disperse your baking powder.
I wish I had a better cocoa powder, because I think that would have made a difference. Really nice texture and taste. Fudgey but not overly dense. Next time, I will use butter instead of oil.
Excellent brownies, I cooked them for my nieces 15th birthday, everyone loved them.
I replaced the oil with butter, and doubled the recipe. Thanks Juanessa.
First review! I tried this recipe yesterday, and it turned out amazing. I've never made homemade brownies before, just the boxed variety. The recipe was easy to follow, and the brownies tasted very good. I used just under the recommended amount of oil (not much less), but they turned out well. I baked them in a 9 x 7 in. pan (I believe) for 20 minutes. They came out very crunchy on top, and moist on the bottom. Delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
