From The Kitchen: Fudgey Brownies

Let's pretend I'm not keeping track of my calories and trying really hard to eat healthy this pregnancy. Weekends tend to be a little less 'off the grid' and I don't keep track as hard. That doesn't mean that on Saturday and Sunday I'm eating everything in sight or horribly awful foods in ridiculous proportions. Oh no, I still have limitations, but I do give in to the sweet tooth just a bit.

Last weekend I felt ambitious in the kitchen and did a Pinterest search for quick and simple brownies. After a few clicks I found one for Fudgy Brownies. Based on the fact that the pan was 2/3 eaten  right after lunch, I was pretty sure it was a keeper recipe and worthy of sharing. You are just eight ingredients away from fudgy goodness!

Fudgy Brownies

1 cup Butter, melted

3 cups White Sugar

1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

4 Eggs

1 1/2 cups Flour

1 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

1 teaspoon Salt

1 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 9 x 13 pan and set aside.

In a bowl mix the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla together.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Set aside.

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

Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. 

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spread the brownie batter evenly into your greased pan and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow to cool before cutting. (I know, it's so tempting smelling that chocolate goodness)

I'm mixing this recipe up again today and we'll take it to our diocesan seminarians at the seminary when we visit tomorrow. I figure we can work our way even further into their hearts through their stomachs.

Happy Thursday!


  1. I could eat brownies all day everyday.
    Thanks for the recipe!!!!! : )

  2. Mmmmmmmmm!!!!

    So, are they as good as the dollar box of "fudge brownies" in the red box?

    I just bought a few make every time we have a house showing! It sells it I tell you...the smell of fresh baked brownies...that and a St Joseph novena!

  3. I needed something to bake in the new oven and this was just perfect for all my "sous chefs" to help. There aren't many left, so they must have been yummy! Thanks for sharing this easy and delicious recipe!

  4. Oh my word! I could make three square meals a day on this!


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
