Notes on Ingredients

  • White Sugar: Provides sweetness and contributes to the brownie’s chewy texture.
  • All-Purpose Flour: Gives structure to the brownies, ensuring they’re perfectly dense.
  • Butter: Adds richness and moisture, making each bite irresistibly buttery.
  • Eggs: Bind the ingredients together and add a light, airy texture.
  • Cocoa Powder: The star of the show, providing deep, intense chocolate flavor.
  • Vanilla Extract: Enhances the overall flavor profile, adding depth and warmth.
  • Baking Powder: Helps the brownies rise just enough to create a tender crumb.
  • Salt: Balances the sweetness and enhances the chocolate flavor.
  • Chopped Walnuts: Optional, but they add a delightful crunch and a nutty contrast to the rich chocolate.

How to Make Quick and Easy Brownies

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan to ensure the brownies don’t stick.
  2. Mix Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, flour, melted butter, eggs, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well blended.
  3. Add Walnuts: Gently fold in the chopped walnuts, distributing them evenly throughout the batter.
  4. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it out evenly. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides.
  5. Cool and Serve: Allow the brownies to cool in the pan before slicing them into squares. Enjoy!

How to Serve Quick and Easy Brownies

Serve these brownies warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a classic dessert experience. They also pair wonderfully with a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee. For a more indulgent treat, drizzle some chocolate sauce or caramel over the top.

How to Store Quick and Easy Brownies

Store your brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. If you want them to last longer, you can refrigerate them for up to a week or freeze them for up to 3 months. Just make sure to wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil before placing them in a freezer bag.
