Reader Requested: My famous Brownie Recipe

Some of you wanted my Brownie recipe. For being a girl that doesn’t like chocolate, I can cook up some killer brownies…. or so I’ve been told! These are Davis’s all time fav brownies. And I have a secret trick to making them, ok, so it was more of a “happy accident”….but it’s guaranteed to make the best oooey gooey chocolately brownie you’ve ever tasted!

Chewy Brownies
1 2/3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter, no substitute
2 tablespoon water
2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cups cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
chocolate chips to sprinkle on the top(optional)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine sugar, butter, and water. Stir in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to sugar mixture. Stir until combined. Pour into a greased 9″x9″ pan and cook for 32-38 minutes or until toothpick comes out still slightly gooey at the bottom of the toothpick.

*My secret trick is the smaller pan (9″x9″ instead of 13″x9″) and to take them out of the oven when the brownies are still a bit gooey on the inside. This makes super moist, super thick brownies!*

WARNING: these brownies are very rich!! :)

    I can't wait to try your recipe. :) If I'm not good(meaning instead of working going upstairs to bake) I'll do it is this afternoon. I loved the pancakes last time which I made for my nieces and nephew and they loved them too. They got them after eating some oatmeal with apples and cinnamon as a treat. :)

    I broke my year of no junk food streak to try this recipe. They are so delicious!!
    I must admit I was skeptical for 2 reasons…I have never had good homemade brownies (but NOW I have!) and 2…never trust a skinny cook. But you passed the test my friend!
