  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup flour
  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Tablespoon water
  • 1 tsp vanilla



  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  • Line an 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an extra two inches over the sides for easy removal of the brownies whey they have finished baking.
  • Lightly spray or butter the other exposed sides of the pan. Set the pan aside until the batter is ready.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, salt and chocolate chips.
  • In a large mixing bowl, or stand mixer, mix the eggs, oil, water and vanilla together.
  • Gradually add in the flour mixture and continue mixing until the dry ingredients are completely mixed in with the egg mixture.
  • Evenly pour the batter into the lined pan, using a spoon or spatula to evenly distribute the batter.
  • Bake on the center rack, in the middle of the oven for about 40 minutes.
  • Optional: Sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips on top of the brownies about halfway into the baking process.
  • Brownies will be done when the top looks shiny.
