My Favorite Brownie Recipe

So, I know I recently shared some of my favorite healthy snack ideas, but sometimes your kids just want you to make dessert. And to be honest, I only ate one of these. :) 

Just look at this yummy pic...

Let me tell you that the house smells so good while these are baking!

Here's the recipe I use:

Baker's One Bowl Brownies


4 squares Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate 
3/4 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)


Heat oven to 350. Line a 13x9 pan with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray.

Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwave bowl on high 2 minutes. Stir until chocolate is melted.

Stir sugar into chocolate until well blended Mix in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and nuts until well blended. Spread in greased foil lined 13x9 inch baking pan. 

Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Do not overbake. Cool in pan. Cut into squares. 

Notes: I always use their "Cake Like" version (without nuts) The brownie in the pic above is the cake like version. Here's the variation:

For Cake like brownies, Stir in 1/2 cup milk with eggs and vanilla. Increase flour to 1 1/2 cups. I always mix it with a whisk and bake this version for 32 minutes. I also leave mine in the pan and just refrigerate. We cut individual pieces as we want them. 

So good!




  1. Lisa, It sure looks like tasty brownies. I have always used a mix. I can't even remember when I last made brownies even. LOL.Or had them. You are so good to only eat one. I'd have to have two.:) Blessings to you, xoxo,Susie

  2. Yummy! Nothing better than a hot brownie.

  3. We eat a lot of boxed stuff. I am pinning this and we're going to try your recipe next time. We actually just made brownies. I however did not eat just one! ;)

  4. I know they're delish! I will have to add pecans though. :)


  5. Yum! Do you know that I have never made homemade brownies? I've always used a mix (like Betty Crocker). In fact, I have a box in my cabinet right now! Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe. It doesn't seem too difficult. I just joined a gym yesterday, so I will have to start eating better though to get the max results. Brownies might be dangerous to have in my house right now!

  6. Those look soooooo yummy! I haven't made any for a while so I might have to try these :o)

  7. I love homemade brownies! Learned to make those in High school HOME EC. Wonder if they still have THAT in high schools?? Ha ha ha lol

  8. They look amazing, Lisa. My family loves them. Thank you for sharing the recipe. Have a great weekend. xxx Maria

  9. Did you know I never made brownies from scratch - ever?! If I ever get the chance, your recipe will be my first! Thanks for sharing Lisa deAR!

  10. Brownies are sooo good and yours look delicious! I could never get brownies right though and I'm talking box brownies lol. Mine seem to come out flat and crumble when I try to cut them :( So we have lots of brownie crumbles around here lol.

    I too love the way a house smells when baking. I just finished baking a vanilla cake for my women's meeting tonight and my house smells divine!

    Have a great weekend friend!

  11. Pinning! These look delicious!! I can't wait to give the recipe a try! Hugs!

  12. Good Morning!
    Well it's a Saturday morning, and I'm just wondering if it's too early for me to make a batch of brownies!
    Recipe sounds, looks and I know tastes soooo good:) Yummmy!

  13. These brownies sound delicious and easy to make! My tastebuds are returning, so more and more things are tasting really good to's almost like discovering new food!

    Warm hugs,
