Lazy Brownies Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Want to know what I like? Desserts. Want to know what I like even more than desserts? EASY desserts. As much as I love baking, it’s awesome to have a killer dessert recipe in your arsenal that requires very little effort. It’s also nice to have a last-minute, crap-we-have-company-coming-gotta-throw-something-together, option. If this sounds as appealing to you as it does to me, then you need this Lazy Brownies recipe in your life. It involves only one bowl, one baking pan and 9 simple ingredients. It can also be served warm with ice cream only ten minutes after removing from the oven if the need arises which is a hella cool bonus. But warning; once you go the lazy route, you may never go back. 😉

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butter, melted

Here’s what you’re going to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8 inch square pan with parchment paper or spray pan with cooking spray (I prefer using parchment paper, but you do you Booboo).
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and granulated sugar with an electric mixer.
  3. Add cocoa powder and beat on low (if you turn the beaters on too high you may end up with a big cocoa powder cloud in your face, just sayin’).
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until combined.
  5. Add vanilla, beat until combined.
  6. Add flour, salt and baking powder, only stirring until flour is combined. Do not overbeat on this step!
  7. Fold in ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  8. Pour batter into pan and spread evenly.
  9. Bake for approx. 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with crumbs, but NOT wet.
  10. Cool completely or serve warm a la mode! Enjoy, fellow lazy people.
