The Best Chocolate Chip Muffins

Creating a classic brownie recipe involves a balance of rich chocolate flavor, a moist interior, and a delightful crust on top. Here’s a straightforward recipe to make delicious brownies from scratch:


  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (40g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (65g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Optional for serving:

  • Powdered sugar for dusting
  • Vanilla ice cream


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×9 inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
  3. Beat in cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Do not overcook; the brownies should be soft in the center.
  5. Let them cool in the pan before slicing into squares. Dust with powdered sugar or serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an added treat.

These brownies are perfect for a quick chocolate fix or a casual dessert. Enjoy baking and indulging in your homemade treat!
