Ingredients (Makes 16 brownies)

4 eggs at room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup melted unsalted butter — cooled down
1 ¼ cups unsweetened cocoa –sifted
½ cup flour — sifted
1 tsp.

Heat oven 300 degrees F and prep a square pan buttering and flouring it.

Mix the sifted flour, cocoa and in a bowl.

Place the eggs in a bowl and beat until they are pale — about 3 minutes. Add the sugar and mix. Add the vanilla and butter and mix. Do not over beat, just mix it. Add the flour and cocoa and mix. Again, do not over beat, just mix it.

Pour the batter into the pan and place it in the oven. Bake for 45 55 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool down completely — about 3 hours.

Once the brownies are completely cooled, cut them into squares.

Serve and enjoy!

    together.Turns out REALLY well and DELICIOUS! i baked it for 35mins as i
    like it to be moist. SUPER moist. i waited for only an hour to cut them
    off. ;)

    thanks for the recipe 🙂 I made these yesterday and thay were exactly
    as you said: fudgy, fabulous,chewy,moist AWESOME!!!!!! But I have one
    question: Could you also use white chocolate coco powder instead of
    regular coco powder? thanks 🙂 I love experimenting in the kitchen :D

    this recipe is rubbish as the temperature is too high you wasted my
    ingredients and time 300 degrees burnt them to crisp in 10 mins my oven
    doesn’t even go too 300 degrees so i put it on the highest which is 250
    degrees and it burnt thanks a lot

  23. Calipali1 on May 18, 2014: (Reply)

    Would I be able to make these in a 11 x 7 Brownie Pan? I realize they would
    be thinner, but do you think they would adapt well?

  24. Norman Newman on May 19, 2014: (Reply)

    Hello maam what is the measure of the cocoa ?I could not understand it well

    brownies. I have tried it and it comes out perfect.

    I thought she said ” eighty spoon of salt….”. XDDD

  32. giovanni granados on June 1, 2014: (Reply)

    Is the butter necessary can i use somthing else like vegetable oil?

  33. MendozaMichelle100 on June 14, 2014: (Reply)

    Weird. Chocolate brownie without any chocolate. Add melted chocolate guys
    if you really want a delicious chocolate brownie.

  34. Chelsea Boyd on June 15, 2014: (Reply)

    This batter was definitely thicker than what the boxed mixes are. But,
    these were delicious. I only had salted butter, so I used that and skipped
    the salt. 🙂

    People can actually cook your recipes because we already buy these
    I enjoy your recipes.

  35. liv on June 16, 2014: (Reply)

    Just wondering… you don’t need to add sugar? wouldn’t the brownies have
    no sweetness to it as you’re using unsweetened cocoa? I know you’re adding
    vanilla extract, but are you sure they’re sweet enough? Also, instead of
    vanilla extract, can I add vanilla essence instead? I’m not sure if it’ll
    turn out/taste the same as the one you’re making. And, I might just add
    some nuts right before I place it in the oven. 🙂 This video by far, the
    most simplest way to make brownies! Looks delish. Thank you! I hope you can
    respond asap as I would like to make these for my brothers birthday

  36. Valencia Clark on June 16, 2014: (Reply)

    These brownies are awesome!!! I make them all the time!!! Great recipe!!

  37. posoposo99 on June 18, 2014: (Reply)

    For you guys that are wondering if vegetable oil can be used instead of
    butter, I used it and the result was pretty good! They were fudgey, moist,
    delicious and chocolatey! Also, my first time making brownies and I used
    cupcake molds for this so that they’d be ready a little faster~ I do think
    that butter would be a little better, but both ways are delicious!

  38. Jewel Dalton on June 20, 2014: (Reply)

    I made these tonight and they’re delicious!!! Thank for the amazing recipe,
    I’m definitely making these often!

    Thank you once again…:)

  51. XyntXII on July 23, 2014: (Reply)

    what was the stuff you put in, when you said vanilla and why did it have
    that consistency?
    as i know vanilla it is a longer, thin black .. fruit and one uses the
    middle which might be moist, but never liquid. i also know this stuff in
    the middle dried as powder or that mixed with sugar, but… what did you

  52. wmat58 on July 25, 2014: (Reply)

    Very delicious!!!!

  53. Mathias Lindberg on August 11, 2014: (Reply)

    Hey +The Frugal Chef, I made these brownies, and wasn’t very impressed. Not
    enough sugar nor flour, and too much cocoa, made it like a solid cocoa
    paste :(. It’s very spongy. but not fudgy and moist like a brownie should

    I’ve made brownies from the box of my cocoa powder before, and it contained
    much more sugar and flour, and turned out amazing. I made it with
    milkchocolate containing nuts, and it was the most amazing cake I’ve ever

  54. lynetteangel on August 14, 2014: (Reply)

    It’s baking in oven but I’m not sure if I beat the eggs enough do you think
    it will affect it?

  55. lynetteangel on August 14, 2014: (Reply)

    Just made it it tastes amazing 🙂 although I half the recipe because I did
    have enough cocoa

  56. lynetteangel on August 14, 2014: (Reply)

    more time
