I can think of nothing better than brownies, when you want that perfect chocolate ‘fix’. That’s why we have these Perfect Brownies to bake over and over and over! Yay! Take it up a notch, by adding 1 cup of dark chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup walnuts. Those would be deemed Perfect Deep Dark Heavenly Brownies! 🙂
- 1 cup butter melted
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder Optional: Add 2 more Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder for more dark chocolate flavor
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray with non-stick spray a 9x9 inch square pan.
Whisk together the melted butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl, then beat in eggs one at a time, set aside.
In another bowl, whisk or stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Gradually blend flour into the wet mixture and stir until incorporated. Batter will be thick.
Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Don't overbake.
Let brownies cool, then cut into squares.
These are approx 1/3 inch thick brownies. For thicker brownies, you can use an 8 inch pan, but bake an extra 5 minutes or so.
