Best Brownies Ever

I honestly think these are hands down the best brownies ever. They're not cakey, no a pile of mush, but right in between. If you are obsessed with chocolate like me, I think you'll enjoy these brownies. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the page to see the easy glaze recipe!

 This recipe was adapted from titled Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Makes 1 9x9 in pan


  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white sugar 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • milk chocolate chips to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) Grease a 9 x 9 inch baking pan.
  2. In medium bowl, mix together oil, sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir egg mixture into dry ingredients (or vice versa) until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes (I did 23 minutes and they were perfect). Let cool fully before cutting and serving.
                                                                            BROWNIE GLAZE
This simple glaze is rich and perfect to complete your brownies! 
  • milk chocolate chips
  • half and half
In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the chocolate chips in short bursts until melted. Add splashes of half and half until the glaze is the consistency you want it. Spread on top of cooled brownies.

NOTES: The chocolate chips are totally optional, but I added them because I thought they produced a burst of chocolatey flavor that was otherwise missing. When your brownies come out of the oven, insert a toothpick to three different places of the brownies. if the toothpick comes out clean, they are baked. If not, slide those babies back in the oven for a minute or two longer! Do not be surprised if your brownies feel delicate and mushy. They will set after cooling. Enjoy!
