The Moistest Brownies E.V.E.R.

Saturday, January 16, 2010



Have you ever made homemade brownies? Or are you stuck making them from the box because every recipe you have ever tried ends up being more like cake than like a brownie? Well, I have the recipe for you! These brownies will not disappoint. They have become well talked about amongst my twitter sisters (twisters),  so if you can't take my word for it, surely you can trust them. ;) Let's get to the chocolaty goodness shall we?


Gather your ingredients. I forgot to put the salt out, good thing I checked the recipe card.


In a large bowl add your sugar, oil and vanilla. Yes, that is a lot of sugar. We're making dessert here folks, not a healthy snack. If you're looking for a healthy snack check out my green smoothies. ;) If you want chocolaty goodness just keep on going with me. Let's mix that all together nicely.


Crack your eggs in a separate bowl and then add them to that vanilla sugar.


Take your fork - put that wisk away - and mix the eggs into the sugar mixture. Not too much just so they are mixed.


In a smaller bowl mix your flour (here's where I'll let you do something healthy - I use 1/2 white & 1/2 whole wheat flour.), cocoa, baking powder and salt.  Mix them all together.


At this point dig your fork out of the egg mixture and pour in the flour mix. Go ahead get a clean fork and then mix together. You only want to stir until this is just mixed. Lumps are not only okay but encouraged! ;)


Pour that lovely chocolate into a greased pan and put it in the oven. Go ahead and lick the bowl and spatula now - you know you want to.


After about 30 minutes you'll take it out of the oven - try not to drool and set it to cool. Once it's cool, go ahead and cut it into squares. Then look at what you made.


Oh yes, you have made the moistest brownies ever! Go ahead take a bite.
You'll never go back to that old boxed mix now.

The Moistest Brownies E.V.E.R
Ingredients below are for a double batch

1 cup canola oil
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs
1 cup flour (I used 1/2 cup all purpose & 1/2 cup whole wheat)
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 13 x 9 x 2 Inch Baking Pan (30 x 20 x 3 cm Cake Pan) Combine oil, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, mix until well combined. In a separate bowl add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Add to egg and sugar mixture, and combine just until moistened. Pour into greased pan and bake for 25-35 minutes (I usually bake for about 30 minutes) or until brownies pull away from pan.

this is a fantastic example of "right place, right time". i was just blog surfing and craving something really sweet...came across your recipe and BAM! brownies in the oven 10 minutes later. and i licked the bowl so i didn't even have to wait the 30 minutes for it to cook. the batter was awesome so i know it's gonna be great! i used special dark cocoa and sprinkled peanut butter chips on half of it. what can i say, i love variety.

Mel said...
