This is by far the simplest, most delicious brownie recipe I've ever come across. It yields a shiny crisp top layer along with fudgy insides and chewy edges.

How To Make best brownie recipe

  • 1
    Butter 9x9 baking pan and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2
    Cream together butter and sugar. When well incorporated, switch from a whisk to a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Mix in vanilla and salt.
  • 3
    Add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each.
  • 4
    Thoroughly mix in cocoa powder then add in flour half at a time. Do not over mix!
  • 5
    Fold in your mix-ins. I usually use butterscotch chips or white chocolate chips. Transfer mixture to buttered baking pan and bake for 25 minutes (or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out mostly clean) at 350 degrees. I would advise checking them at 20 minutes as every oven is slightly different.
