Mom's Brownies


     This is my mom's tried and true brownie recipe (and you can't go wrong with mom's recipes right?). They're the simplest (only 5 ingredients!!), quickest, and yummiest from-scratch brownies EVER! Way better than any store-bought boxed mix. They literally take 10 minutes to whip up and 30 minutes to bake, so if you omit the icing, these brownies are ready to eat in well under an hour. This recipe is pretty much fool-proof too, meaning that I don't think I've ever once had it fail (and I've made it a LOT!!).

Preheat oven to 350.
Melt butter and cocoa powder in microwave; set aside.
Beat eggs until frothy. Add sugar, flour and salt.
Pour cocoa mixture over top and beat until well blended.
Pour into greased 8x8 or 9x9 square pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan on wire rack.

The brownies are just as good without icing, but if you like icing (like I do), this stuff is amazing and finishes the brownies off perfectly!

Beat together all ingredients until well blended & smooth. Icing may appear dry (if desired, add slightly more water).
*You want this icing to be on the stiffer side - it goes on really easily and sets up quickly.
Spread icing over brownies while still a little warm.

Enjoy brownies while still warm with a bit of vanilla ice cream or some ice cold milk! Delicious!


  1. Yum! Thanks for sharing! Pinning this one. :)

  2. Looks yum! I always rely on ready mix brownies because I am not that good in the kitchen but this looks easy to make!
