Indulge in the Ultimate Classic Chocolate Brownies Recipe

Here's a simple step-by-step recipe for making classic chocolate brownies:


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter

  • 2 cups granulated sugar

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Optional: 1 cup chopped nuts or chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

  1. Melt the Butter:

  • In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl or on the stovetop, melt the butter.

  1. Mix in Sugar:

  • Add the granulated sugar to the melted butter and stir until well combined.

  1. Add Eggs and Vanilla:

  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, into the butter-sugar mixture. Add the vanilla extract and mix until smooth.

  1. Combine Dry Ingredients:

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.

  1. Incorporate Dry Ingredients:

  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

  1. Add Optional Ingredients:

  • If you're using nuts or chocolate chips, fold them into the batter.

  1. Transfer to Baking Pan:

  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly.

  1. Bake:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (but not wet batter).

  1. Cool:

  • Allow the brownies to cool in the pan on a wire rack. Once cooled, you can cut them into squares.

  1. Serve:

  • Serve the brownies as they are or with a scoop of ice cream for an extra treat.

Enjoy your homemade brownies! Feel free to customize the recipe by adding your favorite nuts, chocolate chunks, or other mix-ins.
