I am a sucker for a good brownie recipe. I like consistently good brownies.  I like it to have a flaky crust.  I like it chewy inside.  I like to taste the chocolate. I wanted the best homemade BROWNIE RECIPE and this is it! I use this recipe in my Brownie Cookies and Cookie Dough Brownie Cake!

What is Brownie Mix?

When it comes to baking I also love convenience. And being able to dump stuff in a bowl and make magic.  So this is my attempt to capture the ease of a box brownie mix but without the other icky stuff.

Homemade Brownie Mix

Homemade Brownie Mix Uses

This recipe tastes amazing and easily lends itself to adaptations. For instance, you can add any sort of chocolate chip, white chocolate chip, M&M’s, Nutella, etc. You can also easily double the recipe or pair the brownie mix with frosting.

One thing to note, this brownie mix recipe is not huge.  It yields 9 brownies. (Most people don’t have five kids like me and prefer “normal” size pan of brownies.)

Another bonus? There are only three “wet” ingredients.

World's Easiest Brownie Mix

 

Butter, eggs, and vanilla.

And the brownie recipe can be made in one bowl too.

How awesome is that?

These BROWNIES ARE AMAZING folks!

Optional Add-Ins for Brownies

Morsels – milk chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch, you name it! I use about 1/2 – 3/4 cup total

Nuts – again, any you prefer. About 3/4 cup works perfect

Nutella – drizzle it on the brownie batter in the pan and swirl if you want it fancy!

Oreos or other cookies – rough chop and add about 1 cup to batter

You can get really creative! 🙂 

 

Brownie Recipe

I think these brownies are really good, but I especially loved them when paired with a sweet or tart fruit such as raspberries.

And stacked in a pile of three and covered in chocolate sauce.

Brownie Recipe

To make this brownie I used the same recipe above then added chocolate chips to the recipe as well as a couple on top after I took them out of the oven.

Here is my BIG SECRET DON’T TELL ANYONE TIP: Remove them 5-10 before they are done. This is not recommended if you are opposed to eating brownie batter!! But if you love ooey gooey chocolate brownie amazingness then it is worth trying. 🙂

Reader Comments

  1. Should unsalted butter be used as opposed to salted since salt is called for anyway? Any changes if using metal or glass baking dish?

  2. What type of unsweetened cocoa powder do you use? I made them using King Arthur a triple Blend and felt they could have been a little sweeter. Maybe it was the cocoa?

  3. These look delucious. So the brownies that look goopier where taken out earlier? If I bake them the full time will they be chewier? My family prefers chewy brownies.

    Also, if I want to triple the recipe so I have for future uses and put into a container, how much would equal one mix amount when scooped out of the tripled container?

    Thank you
