An easy Brownies recipe

Optional: You can dust these, once baked, with powdered sugar. This definitely makes the brownies look prettier especially while gifting the same. * You can do 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup butter vs 1 cup butter

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar Or if you prefer, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup semi sweet, semi-healthy, chocolate chips. (I like using the Enjoy Life brand chocolate chips.)
  • 1 cup walnut chips Or crush walnuts till tiny crumbles
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a 13x9x2" cake pan by greasing and flouring it prior to pouring the batter into the same.
  2. In a big bowl, manually whip the eggs.
  3. Add to this the sugar and mix well.Now add the butter and vanilla extract. Combine the same.

  4. Finally add in all the dry ingredients and mix till well combined.
  5. Pour the prepared batter into the pan and pop into oven for about 20 minutes. Keep checking to see if it's ready with a toothpick/fork-bake test.
  6. Serve these hot or wait till these cool a bit to make cutting the brownies not as messy.
