To make the mix

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cocoa* I like dutch process the best
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

To make brownies with the mix

  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla optional


  • To make the mix, whisk together the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder and salt until well combined. Store in a jar or another tightly covered container. I like to double or triple the batch so I have mix for several batches of brownies at a time.
  • To make the brownies, add 3 3/4 cups (1 batch) of brownie mix to a large bowl. Add 4 room temperature eggs and 1 cup of melted butter and vanilla. Beat together. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan**. Bake at 350° F for 28-32 minutes or until center is set.
  • Remove and cool before cutting into bars.



*Either regular or dutch process cocoa powder is fine. Dutch process cocoa powder makes them darker and richer.
**You can make brownies for an 8x8 or 9x9 pan too. Simply use 1 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of brownie mix, 1 egg and 1/2 cup melted butter.
