Speedy Brownies

I finally got around to doing a recipe post! We got this recipe from a friend of ours and it is so simple and quick! If you want brownies that are cake-like, then you will have to bake them longer than 30 minutes. We bake them for 30 minutes and they turn out more fudge-like.

Speedy Brownies
2 Cups sugar
1 3/4 Cups All-purpose flour
1/2 Cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
5 eggs
1 Cup oil(the recipe says vegetable oil, but we use coconut oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Cup(6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the first seven ingredients;beat until smooth.

2. Pour into a greased(we also flour it) 9" by 13" pan.

3. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

When we made them this time we added chopped walnuts and white chocolate chips.

We ate most of them before I could get a picture. ;)

I have found that it is much easier to mix if you use a hand mixer. I used a spoon for a while because our mixer didn't work and I sure got an arm workout!

Now I'm hungry for chocolate...
I feel like I should go make brownies. Except that it's nine o'clock at night.



  1. UHMMMM these look *so* good. If I could eat wheat/sugar I would be making these pronto. As it is, I will have to drool over the pictures (which make me feel like I'm actually smelling the chocolate-y-ness, btw) and dream of the day I can make a batch. ;D

    (P.S. So so lovely to see you back in the blogosphere a bit!!! Though I followed the link to this older post from pinterest... I'm loving reading your new posts as they appear on my bloglovin' hehe. :))

    1. Thanks Beth! My aunt has a recipe for gluten free brownies that she makes using a homemadegluten free flour mix. It's really good, or at least I think it is, I haven't had them in a while, but I think the ones I had were her gluten free version. I can post it if you would like. :)

      I saw you pinning your posts on Pinterest and it made so much sense so you can get more readers so I pinned my posts I thought people would actually repin. :)

      Thank you for inspiring me with your comments to blog more often!
