Simple Brownie Recipe

Yum Print This Post Print This Post
These Brownies are nice and moist. I think one of the things I liked most about this Brownie recipe is that, if you do any amount of baking at all, you will probably have all the ingredients on hand. This is a quick and simple recipe the Family will love.

  3. OMG these are talking to me tonight!!! They look so good it is unfair!

  4. These look delicious!

  5. Those look wonderful, nice and fudgy!

  6. Great recipe!! They look delicious!!


  8. I needed a recipe that had simple “in house” ingredients for a potluck that night. Since I did not have veggie oil, I microwaved 2 sticks of “Imperial” and that worked!! I was impressed with the taste and it had the perfect brownie consistency – held together and chewy. LOVED THEM – THANK YOU! Sadly I had none to bring back home so have to make another batch soon!

  9. I just made these brownies. They turned about good. Nothing spectacular but still good from scratch. Thumbs up!

  10. if I wanted to use butter, how much would I substitute for oil (I read KAren’s post, but I am here in Australia and quantities that butter comes in are different)? They look soooo delicious. Hoping I will have time tonight to make em! Yummmmmm!!

  11. I am not sure.

  12. Lianne, 1 cup of oil is 1 bar of butter.

  13. Making these for my boyfriend’s family. i hope they are as good as they look!!!!

  14. Looking through my panrty I found a box of unsweetwened coco powder that I bought a while back. I was thinking what could I bake with this ingredient, then brownies came to mind. I wanted a recipe that was simple. One that I didn’t have to buy a particular item for.
    So this morning I googled simple brownie recipes and found two. This one and another which required more ingredients than I wanted to use. It all came down to the ratings. After looking at the comments for the other recipe, I found this recipe and read all the comments left. I was amazed by what other people had to say, and after taking a look at the picture and scanning the recipe I knew which one I would bake.
    In the late afternoon I decided to make them for myself and my family. Of course as I was pouring the batter into the pan I licked my fingers every chance I got. And it was delicious!
    After a little over thirty minutes I took it out and let it cool, then I put it in a display dish for my family to have. Of course I tried a couple, and let me tell you I will be holding on to this recipe for another time. -It is hard to find simple, yet delicious recipes.-

  15. Thanks for the Nice Write Up on this Recipe

  16. Used quinoa flour in order to make them gluten, free, suitable for people on a celiac (coeliac) diet.

    This recipe worked quite well, thanks!

  18. how many does this make?

  19. OMG these are AWESOME!! I’VE BEEN MAKING THEM FOR LIKE 3 YEARS NOW AND THEY ROCK!!! I sometimes add chocolate chips for a fudgey flavor, and they are gone in seconds!!!
    Great Brownies, highly reccounmend them to anyone!!
    I wouldn’t use the nuts, they are fine without!!!

    🙂 YUM YUM

  20. this is great! it only took a while to gather the ingredients and baked great!
    my kids love it. thanks!

  21. Is the temperature in F or C?

  22. Sorry-temp is in F

  23. heyy…what is vanilla? is it vanilla sugar?

  24. This recipe is calling for vanilla extract.
    Hope that helps.

  25. I went to make these brownies and discovered that I didn’t have enough regular sugar and didn’t feel like going to the store, so I used confectioners sugar, I had plenty of that, and . . . BEST SUBSTITUTION EVER!!!! :DDD thought not for those who don’t like things extra sweet, made the texture smoother though 🙂

    Omg, the best brownies I have ever attempted to make from scratch! And believe me I have tried a whole lot of different recipes, even tweaked em to make it alil better but these hit the spot. Thank you! It’s definitely a keeper!

  27. THANK YOU SO MUCH Cully for this fabulous brownie recipe. I’ve tried others and they’ve never turned out quite right. This recipe has ended my search. I don’t change a thing- I do add the walnuts. It has since made many people happy and they also comment how delicious it is.

    I am definitely going to try some other recipes from this site.

    All the best,

  28. Hi.. Am just find your recipe, and I want to try it. But sadly, I don’t have oven for baking. Can I use rice cooker for baking?
    Thanks for the answer

  29. Sorry I can’t help you – I’ve never used a rice cooker, so I don’t know.
