The most amazing brownie recipe ever!!!

Brownies are one of those easy, always-accepted desserts to bring to a potluck or family dinner. They can be served warm or cold, with ice cream and chocolate sauce, or work great as a school lunch treat.

I've tried a handful of brownie recipes over the years, and while they have been pretty good, none of them "wowed" me like this one does. I honestly don't remember where this recipe came from... maybe I heard about it on a radio station?? It's SUPER easy if you have one of those fancy stand mixers, but it works just fine with regular beaters too. And the best part? You probably have every single one of these ingredients on hand already. And this recipe comes out PERFECT every time.

4 eggs
1 cup oil
1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup + 2 Tb baking cocoa

Mix all ingredients together, beat for 3 minutes. Pour into 9x13 pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.

See? Super easy! 'Tis the season for lots of baking -- make your house smell like chocolate today!! :)

(this piece looks like a triangle, but it's really just the corner piece. I love that slightly crunchy/slightly chewy part. :)


  1. I like this recipe. My kids make brownies all the time. Some work ,Some don't. With this one I can smile and say its good with out lieing. LOL

  2. I am a total sucker for brownies. And now that I've read this, I think I may have to raid my candy stash . . .

    Ever thought about putting a little spinach in there? Sub spinach for 1/2 the oil. You can't taste the difference, but it takes out some of the guilt ;-)

  3. Great idea! I've heard of using some pureed black beans too...

  4. wow, how amazing is that recipe - so easy. Can't wait to try it.

  5. This saves me. I'm going to my sister's house for Christmas. She, of course, said not to bring anything but who can resist chocolate? I am going to make this recipe. I just hope it makes it to her house. ha, ha. Thank you.
