Best Brownies Recipe

Everyone needs great basic brownie recipe. Its a staple, kind of like having flour or sugar on hand.

And this recipe doesn't disappoint. Its simple, easy and perfect every time! This amazing recipe I founded at and I love it.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Then grease a 9x13 pan.

Here's what you'll do:

Mix together 2 cups of sugar and 2/3 cups of baking cocoa
Melt 2/3 cup of butter and mix it in with your sugar and cocoa. Real butter makes a big difference, if you have some this is what you will want to use.
Next add your eggs. The original recipe calls for 4 eggs but I prefer 3. 3 eggs makes the brownies less
cake-y and more fudgey/chewy. Mix well.

Then add:
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour
and mix until smooth and well combined.

Pour into your greased pan and add your chocolate chips on top. {I like them on top because you can more evenly distribute them without over doing the chocolate}
