These chocolate brownies are easy to mix up in a saucepan, and they're chewy, moist, and delicious!




  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional


Heat oven to 325°. Grease and flour an 8-inch square baking pan.

In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and chocolate, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and let cool. With a whisk, beat in the vanilla and sugar. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Stir flour, measure into a small bowl, and stir in the baking powder and salt, blending well. With a wooden spoon, stir the flour mixture into the first mixture.

Stir in the chopped nuts, if using, blending well. Spoon into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

Bake the brownies for about 25 minutes.

A little tweak, Member 2trikee

Great base recipe BUT I decided to give it a slight tweak. So here's what I did. To the recipe 1 4oz bar of Bakers German Chocolate 3 TBSP STRONG coffee 6 TBSP Butter In a glass bowl, Microwave 1 minute, stir, microwave another 30 secs, stir-repeat until mixture is smooth. Cool 1 tsp vanilla 1/2 cup sugar Whisk until blended. Add two eggs and again whisk to blend. 1/4 tsp each of cinnamon, salt and baking soda (I goofed and added soda instead of baking powder probably be better with the baking powder but still dense and good!) 3/4 cup flour 1/2 cup nuts (if wanted, I didn't have any) Mix well, let set a minute while you butter a 8 inch pan, dust with cocoa and bake at 325 for 25 minutes. Mixture will take a little longer to bake due to the coffee, so extend time by five minutes, checking ofter with a tooth pick in the center...easy to dry these out so eyeball it!
