The Best Brownie Recipe

It’s been a year since the last time I baked brownies. I found this recipe from  I checked the ingredients and procedures and it looks so easy so I tried it yesterday. 

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Mix oil and sugar until well blended.
3. Add eggs and vanilla; stir just until blended.
4. Mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
5. Stir dry ingredients into the oil/sugar mixture.
6. Pour into greased 9 x 9 square pan.
7. Bake for 20 minutes or until sides just starts to pull away from the pan.
8. Cool completely before cutting.

I added chocolate chips
This is indeed a simple and easy recipe because I don’t need a mixer to mix all the ingredients and I can make this is less than 30 minutes. We all love the brownies and it is better than my previous recipe. It is so moist, gooey and not overly sweet. The only thing I notice is, it is a little bit oily maybe because I use vegetable oil. Next time I will reduce the oil to 1/3 cup and will see what will happen. One more thing I need to double the recipe because we ate 3/4 of the brownies in one sitting. 

I don't know why it is not smooth on the top. 
Mita's Fudgy Brownies

Last Saturday, I baked Mita’s Fudgy Brownies and I was so delighted because I made it. It was my first time to bake brownies and thank you for this recipe. Click here for the recipe. I planned to add some nuts in the recipe but my hubby bought a garlic flavor nuts but brownies are still yummy even without nuts. It is a little bit sweet so next time I will reduce the sugar to ¾ cup. It doesn’t look good on the picture.
