I got this recipe from the Dessert for Two cookbook I got for my birthday. I love scaled down desserts because I can eat the whole pan
without any with less guilt.
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Combine butter, sugar & cocoa powder and microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave another 30 seconds on HIGH. Stir well, and add the salt & vanilla. Let cool a little, and add the egg. Finally, add the flour and stir for 50 strokes. Spread batter into a prepared loaf pan and bake for around 21 minutes at 325*F. Slice into as many or as little pieces as you’d like!
Since I used the loaf pan for this, the brownies are quite flat… but also full of cocoa flavor! I prefer chunkier brownies but these have great flavor.
