One Bowl Brownies


We love brownies.
We love making them.
We love buying them at Verbena.
But mostly, we love eating them.

When it comes to desserts, a well-made brownie is the real deal.  Rich chocolate flavor in a sweet, buttery dough – It just doesn’t get any better.

Most brownies are easy to prepare and the following recipe definitely falls into that category.  I am happy to report that Lollie, the hesitant cook, and her friend have become quite the expert brownie makers.

This is a fabulous recipe to make with children.  There are three eggs to crack (All kids love cracking eggs as much as mine do, right?).  These brownies are made from 7 pantry items with a bowl and a spoon. Stove-top cooking and electric mixing are not required.

I found this recipe on GoodLife {Eats}, a lovely blog about food and family.  Many thanks to flavorista Katie Goodman for this one bowl wonder.

One Bowl Cocoa Brownies, slightly adapted from GoodLife {Eats}

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cups good quality cocoa powder
generous pinch of kosher salt
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup flour

Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Grease and flour an 8×8-inch baking pan.  Set aside.

Add butter to a large microwave-safe bowl.  Cook on high for 1 minute to melt.  Stir in the sugar; then stir in the cocoa and salt until evenly blended.

Whisk eggs and vanilla into the cocoa mixture.  Stir in the flour and mix until smooth.  Pour batter into a prepared 8×8 pan.  Spread batter into an even layer.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool in pan, on a wire rack, for at least 2 hours before slicing.  Brownies can be stored on the counter or in the fridge in an air-tight container.
