The BEST Brownies

Karen Gentry is back from Where Flours Bloom with another great recipe for the chocolate lovers out there and these not only look yummy, but sound easy too! Take it away Karen!

These brownies are magnificent!!! I mean “melt in your mouth”…must try! Not too sweet…not too dry…just right! These are my fav! These are so easy to make, my daughter Madison (12 yrs old) made these.

I like to add walnuts, but that’s optional.

1/2 cup butter

1 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.
  • In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.


Okay, no more brownie mixes for me. I’d much rather make them from scratch anyway and avoid any artificial ingredients. Thanks so much Karen for making it all look so easy!
