  • 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.
