Classic Brownies

 

We had a long week, so I decided to bake some fresh brownies for my husband to come home to. Yes, I can be that sort of wife sometimes.

I originally intended to go the lazy Betty Crocker mix route, but was then inspired to try brownies from scratch. Plus I haven’t written up about any recipes in a while, and figured having “Betty Crocker” in the ingredient list would be a bit sad. I love this recipe because it’s simple, and calls for basic, already-in-your-pantry items. The brownies came out with a wonderful cakey texture and buttery taste – a perfect version of the classic brownie!

Classic Brownies

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square pan. In mixing bowl, stir butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat in cocoa, flour, salt and baking powder. Spread batter into pan. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
