I am a sucker for a good brownie. I like a consistently good brownie. I like it to have a flakey crust. I like it chewy inside. I like to taste the chocolate.
But I also like convenience. And ease. And being able to dump stuff in a bowl and make magic. So this is my attempt to capture the ease of a box mix, but without the other icky stuff.
Here is why I like this recipe:
It tastes good and easily lends itself to adaptations. (Add chocolate chips, double the recipe, add frosting, etc.)
It’s not huge. Most people don’t have five kids like me and prefer “normal” size pan of brownies. (This recipe yields nine brownies.)
There are only three “wet” ingredients.
Butter, eggs, and vanilla.
And the recipe can be made in one bowl too.
How awesome is that?
