Brownies Recipe

Written by CMP on June 15, 2008

My youngest son said he wanted brownies for his birthday.

The only problem was that we'd already booked a party with loads of dinosaurs and, well, ice cream. Admittedly, we went a little over-board on this one. His actual birthday is in the middle of July - after school has let out for the summer and smack in the middle of our summer beach rental. So while his brother has been having parties with all his school friends in the middle of winter, he's had to make do with a couple beach friends and a cup cake. We knew he'd catch on eventually, and this year he did.

So we threw him his first "real" birthday party and despite the fact that we had vanilla ice cream on order, he wanted brownies.


  • 4 Squares of Bakers Chocolate
  • 1 1/2 Sticks Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.

In the microwave or a double boiler, melt butter and chocolate together and mix well. Add white and brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Beat eggs in a separate bowl with vanilla and salt then add to the chocolate mixture. Stir in flour until all lumps are gone.

Pour batter into a 13x9 inch greased cake pan. Make sure batter is evenly distribute in the pan and then bake for 30-35 minutes (until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean).
