Best Easy Brownies require just 1 bowl, no mixer, and take less than an hour to ! (FULL RECIPE BELOW – TAP SHOW MORE)

These homemade brownies are tall, fudgy, and chewy with that thin shiny crust on top and tons of flavor 🙂

Use a digital kitchen scale to ensure your brownies don't end up dry, dense, or cakey:*


10 tablespoons (142 grams) unsalted butter
4 ounces (113 grams) semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
2 large eggs plus 1 yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup (95 grams) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (25 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
1 cup (170 grams) semisweet

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a metal 8-inch square pan with parchment paper.

In a large -safe bowl combine the chocolate and butter. Microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring between each burst, until the mixture is melted and smooth. Add the sugar to the hot butter mixture and whisk vigorously until combined. Allow to cool until just barely .

Add in eggs, yolk, and vanilla extract and whisk for about 1 minute, or until very well combined. This helps create that shiny crust on top.

Use a rubber spatula to stir in flour, cocoa powder, and salt until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Pour into prepared pan and smooth out. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Let cool in pan 30 minutes before slicing.

You can easily double this recipe and bake in a 9 by 13-inch metal pan for about 35 to 40 minutes.

    This looks like a great recipe and I can’t wait to try it. I do have a question, though. Would the baking time need to be adjusted if I use a silicone baking pan?

    I only have the pan that is the dark kind. So should i bake it at a shorter time say 25 mins? Thanks. The brownies look so yum ?
