The easiest brownie recipe for making perfect brownies every time. This recipe produces a rich, well-balanced chocolate brownie with a perfect crust. While I like them fudgey and gooey with a crisp top, there are simple alterations you can make for a cakier or softer result. Use this recipe as your platform for customizing your perfect brownie!
Making brownies from scratch doesn't have to be hard. Don't be afraid of flour and chocolate - the rewards you reap will be well worth the effort.
I love my Kitchenaid, but a wooden spoon works just as well for this recipe
1 cup (225 g) butter, melted
3 cups (600 g) white sugar
1 tablespoon (15 mL) vanilla extract
4 eggs (add one more for a cakier result)
1 1/2 cups (180 g) all-purpose flour
1 cup (70 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda (to give them a nice crust - omit if you don't want that)
6 oz chopped semisweet chocolate or 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (180 g)
