Simple and easy fudgy brownies, rich and dense yet cakey, mixed by hand with ingredients already in your kitchen. Better than boxed mix!
I can’t begin to tell you how many times people have asked if I have a good, simple brownie recipe, and I’ve responded with “Yes! It’s on my food blog!”. And since the inquiring individuals never followed up, I assumed they found the recipe and all was well.
A month or two ago, this same scenario played out like all the rest. Except a few minutes later the friend texted me back saying she couldn’t find the recipe.
I pulled up this site on my phone, entered “brownie” into the search bar, and found the recipes for chocolate chip cookie dough dip, hamantaschen, and chocolate chocolate chip muffins… but no brownies.
Huh. I told my friend that the search feature must be malfunctioning on mobile, and I’d send her the link as soon as I was at a computer. Later that evening, I sat down at my computer, searched again for brownies, and had the same result.
Clearly, something was wrong with the search algorithm, so I painstakingly clicked through each post on my food blog, seeking out the brownie recipe.
Apparently it wasn’t the search function that was broken, it was my memory… because I never posted the brownie recipe.
If I’ve mistakenly directed you to a brownie recipe that didn’t actually exist, please accept my humblest apologies. Here’s the recipe for easy fudgy brownies, finally, a few years too late. I hope you find it worth the wait.
It really is quite lovely – easy and simple to put together. These are the perfect “it’s Tuesday night and I feel like making brownies with ingredients already in my kitchen” recipe. Simple end easy, but still rich and fudgy.
Unlike a lot of relatively bland brownie recipes that rely on add-ins for flavor, these fudgy brownies are delicious when left plain, but cakey enough to stand up to any additions you want, from peanut butter cups to chopped walnuts to a layer of marshmallow fluff.
Not only do they taste great, but these brownies are downright pretty as well, with a perfect, shiny, flakey crust – no dull, matte, granular top here!
