Brownie Recipe

Here is my favorite brownie recipe—enjoy!



½ cup vegetable oil

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 large eggs

¼ teaspoon baking powder

⅓ cup cocoa powder

¼ teaspoon salt

1½ teaspoon of espresso powder (I use King Arthur)

½ cup flour

½ cup chopped walnuts

1 cup chocolate chips (I use Godiva)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix oil and sugar until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; stir just until blended. Mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Stir dry ingredients into the oil/sugar mixture. I use a sifter to make sure there are no clumps. Add chocolate chips and walnuts.

Pour into greased 9 x 9 square pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the sides just start to pull away from the pan. Cool completely before cutting.

Note: I double this recipe and use a 9 x 13 pan. If you double it, the cook time will be around 30-40 minutes depending on the oven. Turn the light on and watch it! You don’t want them too done, they will be dry!
