Basic Brownies

Definitely basic brownie – my options to improve it – stick with the 20 minutes, sprinkle with salt if desired.


  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¾ cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • Extras:
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • sea salt/ghost pepper salt etc for top


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly spray a 2 – 8×8-in. baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, combine the oil, eggs and vanilla.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix just until combined – Do NOT overmix.
  5. Add chocolate chips if desired.
  6. Spread into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with chocolate chips if desired.
  7. Sprinkle with salt
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center tests clean.
