Absolutely Best Brownies


"This are the easiest and most delicious brownies that I have ever eaten. They are so moist and super quick and easy to make. For best results, use a Dutch processed cocoa. For less cake-like brownies, use all-purpose flour instead of self rising. "

This is a great recipe! I either double the recipe and use a 9 x 13 pan or quadruple the recipe and use an 11 x 17 pan. To make this easy recipe even easier, I just melt the butter on the stov...

These brownies were so delicious. I used margarine and all-purpose flour, and they were still the best I've ever had! First batch was eaten so quickly that I had to make another the same day. ...

These are pretty good. I prefer the Mmm Better Brownies on here, though.

These brownies are nice. I have a serious sweet tooth, and this recipe was still too sweet for me. Consider using less sugar. Thank you Jenn

Use regular all-purpose flour and add 1/4 tsp. baking powder, and you've got "Best Brownies" from this site. No wonder I liked these.

I think this is one of the best brownie recipes I have ever tried! They rose well, and they were moist and delicious. I made them for my children and they loved them also, and they were very ea...
