The Easiest Brownies ever!

Say Hello to Mr Gooey Ms Chewy and go Mmm- Brownies three ways! Simply altering the baking powder proportions and leaving it out totally in one, gives three very different textured Brownies! All yum in their own ways.

Yeah, this has to be the simplest recipe ever for Brownies. No chocolate on the double boiler, no electric beater needed, just mix, bake and enjoy! A big shout of thanks to my friend Shilpa Pinaki whose recipes are ever reliable and incredibly easy to follow! Shilpa, this one’s for you buddy! IMG_20140711_230553_wmThe Basic Brownie

  1. I love the look of these yummy little delights. My brownies puff up and resemble more of a cake.. yours look Perrfectt!!! I am trying the egg free version this weekend. will mail u the pics once done 🙂

    1. Hi Namrata. I am always nervous baking cakes and nned to work on that, but these were so easy!! I have baked 5 batches already for friends and the kiddos’ friends. Will love to see yours ❤

  2. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Do u think I could make the same in a micro? Pls help how to do so as im pretty new to this. Thanks.

  3. garima. can I grease the tin with oil n sprinkle maida incase I dont have the butter paper available at home? so tempted to bake now !!

    1. also did you use a hand blender or electric to do the same..I dunn want to overdoo the mixing so thought will ask..thanks 🙂

      1. Hi Jyoti
        Just a simple mix with a hand whisk is good,
        I use butter paper as they tend to stick. Take a plain sheet, rub butter on it and your butter paper is ready 🙂

  4. garima …ok tried n they turned super yummmy …its a full proof recipe!! I tried the gooey one…loved the texture …only my batter was a lil thick so used a electric whisk only and had to add 2-3 tbspn milk since it was not mixing… 10/ 10 …very happy !!

  5. Hi Garima,

    I am new to baking, however the way you write recipes, it seems baking isn’t that difficult 🙂 And now i’m tempted to try these brownies.. Can you please tell which Oil should we be using for it? what all other variants can be used instead like butter etc and in what proportion? Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Niharica
      This is one of the simplest recipes. You can use any vegetable oil. I used sunflower oil.
      I have baked Brownies using oil always but I am sure butter will work fine in the same measure. Do give them a go!
      Happy baking 🙂
