This is my go-to brownie recipe! It only makes a few so I'm not tempted by an entire batch of brownies sitting around for days. They're so easy to make, perfectly rich, deliciously fudgy and they're sure to satisfy those chocolate cravings.
Ready in: 25minutes
1/4cup (56g)salted butter,cut into 4 pieces
1/2cup (100g)granulated sugar
1/4cup (36g)all-purpose flour*(scoop and level to measure)
3Tbsp (18g)unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4cup (42g)chocolate chipor 3 Tbsp mini chocolate chips**
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray a 8 by 4-inch bread pan*** with non-stick cooking spray (or grease with some butter).
Place butter in a microwave safe bowl, cover and heat in microwave until melted, about 30+ seconds. Let cool slightly while measuring out remaining ingredients.
Mix in sugar, then mix in egg and vanilla extract.
Add flour and cocoa powder and mix just until combined, if adding chocolate chips then add them once dry ingredients are almost blended in.
Pour into prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer. Bake in preheated oven until set, about 19 - 23 minutes.
Let cool about 15 - 20 minutes before cutting and serving.
*For an intensely chocolatey brownie, use 1/4 cup cocoa powder and 3 Tbsp flour.
**Semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips can be used depending on flavor preference. These are not included in nutrition estimate as they are optional.
***Don't use a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan or brownies will be too thin.
Be careful not to over-mix batter or brownies might be cakey.
