“This is a from-scratch recipe---and the best thing, you probably already have everything you need. It is very easy to make. These are NOT the cake-type brownies--and NOT the kind that will make you skinny. This will make fudgy brownies. I originally got this recipe from an online site, but can no longer locate it. I have modified it some for my personal tastes. So thanks to whoever published it first. It is very delicious and EASY to make. Despite the little amount of chocolate, these are VERY chocolaty.”
1 9X9 pan

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 23 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 34 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (plus extra for sprinkling)
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup (like for ice cream(optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spray square 9X9 baking pan and sprinkle a small amount of cocoa powder in the pan.
  3. In medium sauce pan melt butter and remove from heat.
  4. While melting butter, dry whisk flour with cocoa powder in separate med/small mixing bowl and set aside.
  5. Whisk sugar in melted butter, then eggs and vanilla.
  6. Whisk flour/cocoa mixture with other ingredients in pan.
  7. Pour into baking pan.
  8. Bake about 40 minutes. Test using a butter knife, toothpick, or fork. It should come out mostly clean.
  9. I use a glass pan and baked it for exactly 40 minutes. They turn out a little gooey in the middle, but very yummy.
