Dessert: Baker's One Bowl Brownies

I've been making these brownies for years. There are a few tips to making these brownies that make them be so good! These are always popular for sharing at kids schools (no nuts) or bringing to a potluck. I almost always double this recipe (from what is listed) and make it in a lined roasting pan usually used for turkeys.


4 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
3/4 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
2 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted or powdered sugar (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ.
  2. Microwave unsweetened chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on high 2 min or until butter is melted.  Stir until chocolate is completely melted.  Stir in sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.  Add flour and pecans; stir until well blended.  
  3. Spread into greased foil-lined 13x9” baking dish.  Bake at 350o for 30 to 35 min or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs.  Do not overbake.  Cool in pan.  
  4. Lift out of pan onto cutting board.
  5. Melt the semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave and drizzle over the brownies or sift powdered sugar over the brownies.
  6. Cut into desired squares.
