  • 10 tablespoons butter
  • cup sugar
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine butter, sugar, and cocoa powder in a large microwave safe bowl. Melt in microwave on 50% power for about 3 minutes, stirring every 60 seconds. Mixture should be hot to touch, but not scorching. Let cool slightly until warm, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in vanilla then stir in 1 egg at a time until completely incorporated. Add flour and salt, and stir until you can’t see any flour. Stir vigorously for 1 additional minute. Spread evenly in parchment paper lined 8x8 baking pan.
  4. Bake until a toothpick comes out almost clean, about 25-30 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Lift up parchment paper and cut into delicious brownie pieces. Enjoy!
