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.
