Super simple brownie mixer required!

My favorite baking recipes are the ones that do not require a mixer! Less to clean up and quiet to make if you have sleeping children.

Here is my super simple brownie recipe. You can always dress these up by icing them or topping them with jam or berry pie filling. If you prefer a savory brownie as opposed to a fruity one, you can mix equal parts peanut butter and powdered sugar together and top them with that...boom! Reese's topped brownies.

Deanna's Easy Brownie Recipe
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 ounces chocolate chips, semi-sweet
  • 5 Tbsp margarine or butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract OR coffee extract
  • 1/2 cup flour, heaping
  • pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 325*.
Line an 8x8 baking dish with no-stick foil.
Cream sugars and eggs.
Melt margarine/butter and chips together in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Add extract. Stir.
Mix chocolate mixture and egg mixture together.
Pour into pan.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes.

TIP: To cool brownies quickly, remove them from baking dish by lifting out by foil. Be careful as they will be hot. Place onto cutting board. Place entire board, brownies still in foil, into the fridge and cool until easy to cut.

Chocolate Icing Recipe

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • Milk

Add sugar and powder into a bowl and add milk until a thick but spreadable icing forms. Spread over cooled brownies prior to cutting.
