Super easy one bowl fudge brownies
A super easy, one-bowl fudge brownie that requires a few pantry ingredients and a spatula
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time35 mins
- 10 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Generously grease or line a standard 8"x8" baking pan and set aside.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave (it took me about 45 seconds). Stir in the sugar and mix well. The sugar will appear grainy, and that's OK.
Stir in the cocoa powder until well incorporated. Add the salt and vanilla and mix well.
Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix until the first one is fully incorporated before adding the second. The batter should appear somewhat glossy at this point.
Add in the flour and mix with about 50 strokes of your spatula. If desired, add in your favorite nuts or other baking chips.
Bake in your preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. The center should no longer be jiggly.
Remove the pan from the oven and set on the counter to cool. The brownies will continue to set as they cool.
Slice and serve.
Leftover brownies should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator and will last for several days.
