I know. I know. I have written a recipe about brownies before. BUT this one is WiThOuT oil, baking soda, or salt for that matter. Well… some how, in this recipe, the food chemistry still makes it moist/chewy days later! AMEN to that. You know how you like that crunchy edge? This recipe has it and a nice layer of “crisp” on top. AND the best part is: it. is. not. from. a. box and still simple to make!
Prep Time: approx. 10 min Cook Time: 30-40 min Servings: 16 – 24 bars
- 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
- ¾ cup cocoa powder, high fat
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 4 eggs
- 1 ½ cup flour
- ½ cup powdered sugar, to sprinkle on top brownies
- Pre-heat oven at 325° F and grease a 9 x 13 glass pan. Melt butter in a small pan over low-medium heat, then stir in cocoa, whisk until smooth. Pour into large mixing bowl. Add sugar, vanilla, and eggs (one at a time); mix well. Add flour, stir by hand until combined/just blended.
- Spread mixture into pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean). Let cool; sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
Enjoy! With all of my recipes I post, I hope you try it and let me know how it turns out!!
