  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch square baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a separate bowl, stir together the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla. Mix in the eggs. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients just until blended. Fold in chocolate chips and pecans if using. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan and the top appears dry, 35 to 40 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Oh my goodness I made these the other nite & I live near Boulder, CO and have always had difficulty perfecting the art of baking at high altitudes, however this recipe has converted me for sure!...

I live in Quito, which is 9895 ft above sea level. Brownies are one of the most difficult treats to make here. But, these passed the test. Not only against the altitude, but with all of my High ...

Mile High Excellence! As directed, I made 12 cupcake brownies. Filled about 3/4 of cupcake tin with batter. Covered with chocolate icing. Moist, delicious, and only a slight sink in the center...

Tried this recipe at about 6500' and were quite pleased with the result. Chewy and fudgy and delicious! Definitely add the chocolate chips.

I live at 8,228 feet and have all but given up on baking. That being said, I have made these brownies 3 times with rave reviews. It's so nice seeing these come out of the oven without a big cr...

I made this recipe at 5000', it turned out great! The time was right on. The nuts and chips are an added touch, making the brownies even tastier. I will be making these again.
