Brownies - Tips and Recipes

Quick and Easy Brownies

Oven: 350°


  • 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 6 Tbsp. Cocoa
  • 2 Tbsp. Oil
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Flour

  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Chopped Nuts (optional)


Melt butter in medium sauce pan over low heat. Remove from heat and add cocoa and oil; stir. Add sugar and flour; stir after each addition. Add vanilla, baking powder and eggs. Add chopped nuts if desired. Pour into greased and floured 9x9x2 baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Brownies are done when a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly and cut into 16-24 pieces.

I often bake these in a 8x12 pan so the brownies come out thicker. They are real moist. My hubby can eat a pan by himself!

This sounds easy and all the ingredients are already my kitchen. It just doesn't make sense to buy a packaged brownie mix.

Thanks for sharing!

To make really scrumptious brownies from a mix, mix according to the package, then add 1/2 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips or mini-chips, and a hole lot of chopped walnuts. A pan of these barely lasts through the evening when I make them, and they make a great last minute take along item if we go to an impromptu get-together. Very moist!
