Small Pan Brownies

This is a combination of 2 recipes, and some tweaks of my own. Sometimes you just don't need that big pan of brownies, and a small one will do just fine. These brownies were a big hit with all my taste testers!!!

How to Make Small Pan Brownies


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees, with the rack in the lower third of the oven.
  2. Line the bottom of an 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides. Lightly grease the paper, and sides.
  3. Slowly melt the butter over low heat.
    Add cocoa, sugar and salt, stir until mixture is smooth.
    Remove from the heat, and let cool slightly.
  4. Stir in the vanilla, and the eggs, beat until shiny and thick, then stir in flour and baking powder. Mix until smooth.
  5. Spread the batter in the prepared pan, and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out a little moist, about 23 to 25 minutes.
  6. Cool completely on rack. When cooled lift up the sides of parchment paper to remove the brownies from the pan.
    Cut into desired size squares.
