I have been making Toll-House cookies for years, it's always my standby for chocolate chip cookies, and almost always make a double batch to have cookie dough in the fridge. The other day I was in the middle of making a batch, and realized too late that I'd doubled the amount of eggs, while intending to make a regular. amount. I decided to make them into pan cookies, was afraid that cookies would spread too much.

This is my discovery: Adding two extra eggs to my batch made wonderful brownies! Usually, the pan cookie variety of Toll-House recipe ends up dry. No more! These brownies are still soft after two days sealed in a Ziploc bag! I'm glad I doubled the amount of eggs, I will continue to do this.

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!

Next time you make brownies take a dry tablespoon of instant coffee and add 1 tablespoon of water and add it to your batter.
