Fudgy Brownie Recipe

fudgy brownie recipe @createdbydiane #OXOGoodBrownie

To me there is no no use having a brownie if it isn’t fudgy.

I don’t want a brownie to taste like cake, what is what cake is for…and well, I love cake but it has NO place in my brownies.

These brownies are creamy, rich and fudgy and well to tell the truth, they are the ULTIMATE brownie in my book.

When creating this recipe I wanted the brownies to give the chocolate pleasure seeker something to sink their teeth into.


Don’t you just LOVE when that happens. Things turn out just as  you’ve planned.

Yea, I don’t know about you, but I sure with that happened MORE.


Lots of recipes call for 3/4 of a cup and instead of having to get out multiple measuring cups I use this one, it’s from OXO and I really love it. No one is paying me to say it. I can’t help it if I like measuring to be convenient. Plus is cuts down on dishes and I KNOW I’m not the only one who likes that.

I wanted to make a brownie recipe that would fill a 1/4 sheet pan (9.5×13 and 1 1/4 inch deep), HERE is a link to the pan on Amazon.

No 8×8 pan here….these puffed up just over the edge when baking and cooled perfectly.

    I need to try my hand at homemade brownies. These look amazing, could I make them without the coffee? Do you think I should substitute that with something or just leave it out? Thanks Diane! :)

      You sure can Shawn, and you can add in any yummy flavor you’d like to them too. A dash of maple extract would be yummy!

    I hate that measuring cups don’t come with a 3/4 cup! I had to search for a set that did, and now it’s my favorite just for that reason. These brownies look fabulous!
