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, sprinkling with powdered sugar, or topping them with jam or berry pie filling.

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 cup flour, heaping
  • pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350*.
Line an 8x8 baking dish with no-stick foil.
Cream sugars and eggs.
Melt margarine/butter and chips together in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Add extract. Stir.
Mix chocolate mixture and egg mixture together.
Add flour and salt. 
Pour into pan.
Bake 45 to 55 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 a cutting board. Place the 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.
