The BEST Classic Brownie Recipe
- 8×8 baking dish
- mixing bowl
- measuring cup
- 2 tablespoons cane sugar
- 1.5 tablespoons vanilla flavor
- 1 cup AP flour I did NOT test GF flour or any other flour
- ⅔ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 cups powder sugar sifted
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup 2% milk
- 1 stick unsalted butter room temperature
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease an 8×8 glass or metal baking dish with baking spray. If you use a ceramic baking dish, this will change the brownie as the heat transfer isn’t the same as glass or metal.
- In a large mixing bowl, add the cane sugar and vanilla flavor. Stir well.
- Next, add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and sifted powdered sugar. Whisk until well combined.
- Next, you’ll add the wet ingredients.
- Add 1 large egg, milk and room temperature unsalted butter. Use a hand mixer to combine well.
- Pour the batter into your greased glass baking dish.
- Bake for 35-37 minutes, until fully cooked through.
