Homemade Brownies

I think y'all have figured out at this point that I love anything sweet. My favorite sweet things usually contain some form of chocolate. Recently I realized I didn't have a go-to recipe for homemade brownies. Shameful, I know. Here is the one I finally settled on after many batches and bowls:

1 1/4 cups margarine
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup cocoa


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and add cocoa; mix. 
Stir in sugar and blend in the eggs, one at a time. 
Add vanilla. Stir in flour and mix well.
Bake in greased 9 x 13-inch pan for 30 minutes.
Let cool for 20-30 minutes.

I frosted with cream cheese frosting and dove right in!


  1. are they really much, much better than box-mix brownies? I've always been too lazy to try the homemade route with brownies, because box-mix brownies are so delicious already. =)

  2. Those sound delicious! Love your blog so I nominated you for an award!

    Have a great week!
