The BEST Brownie Recipe!

I am a true chocolate lover!

One of my favorite desserts are Brownies.

I have tried numerous homemade brownie recipes, and none can beat this one! I got this recipe from my parent’s neighbor, Faith, years ago… and I have been using it ever since!


1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
1-1/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt

Cream butter and sugar together.
Add eggs and blend well.
Add vanilla, salt, cocoa and flour.  Don’t overbeat.
Pour into a greased 9X13 pan.
Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes.

      Can’t get enough of clhcooate chip cookies & I love the ways these look Julie. With these cookies firmly anchored as an American icon, it’s wonderful to see them showing up in such beauitful avatars across the globe. I’m in love with your bakers twine, your pretty packaging with those monogrammed homemade cards & beautiful presentation!

    They're called FUDGE DREAM BARS in our family. We frost them….the usual chocolate powder sugar type…..and put it on the bars in dollops right out of the oven. As the frosting starts to "melt"….spread it and THEN cool, cut and eat. SOOOOO good!!

    Hi! I loved the consistency of the brownies! Very moist! But the recipe says to use 1-1/2 tsp of vanilla. Do you mean vanilla extract or vanilla bean? All I could taste was the vanilla extract. Please help! I want to try making them again! :)

    I love this recipe! I can barely stop eating the batter when I make it! I actually used this recipe to make a chocolate brownie cake for my wedding dessert bar. I took two round cake pans to make a two layer cake and doubled the recipe. Then I frosted it with chocolate frosting and put chocolate chips on top. It was amazing!

    Wow these look amazing!
