Easy One Pot Fudgy Brownies

Fudgy brownies

These brownies are my go-to brownies for anytime I need to bring dessert to a function or whenever I am craving something chocolate (which was this week). It is so easy to prepare as you essentially throw everything into a pot and then transfer the ingredients into a pan and then bake. Funny enough, I now realize that I have never blogged my recipe; until now! 

Fudgy Brownies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Using a little bit of butter, grease the pan (approximately 8x8x2) or tray that you will be using.
  3. In a medium saucepan melt the butter over low heat.
  4. Once the butter has melted, turn off the heat and add the cocoa. Stir until well blended.
  5. Add sugar and mix well.
  6. Add eggs one at a time. Stir well after adding each egg. 
  7. Stir in the vanilla, flour and salt. Try not to over mix. 
  8. Spread the batter into the greased pan or tray.
  9. Top with chocolate chips.
  10. Bake the brownies for 25-30 minutes. To check if the brownies are done cooking, insert a toothpick into the middle. When it comes up clear it is done.

These brownies turn out great every time. I have even substituted gluten-free flour (Cloud 9 from Costco) and they turn out exactly the same!

I usually top mine with some semi-sweet chocolate chips. You can also throw some into the batter so that they are more chocolately. Sometimes, I sprinkle the top with a bit of maldon salt. That is definitely optional but it sure gives the brownies a different; but satisfying taste! In the past I have also baked the batter in muffin tins (just double the recipe to make a dozen fudgy brownie cupcakes). As you can see, this is a super versatile and easy dessert recipe. I hope you make it!
