Vanilla Brownies

I know what you’re thinking. Vanilla?! But the good news is that these Vanilla Brownies are so chocolate-y you can barely taste the vanilla — even though the recipe calls for a lot of it.

In fact, the recipe is a lot like a chocolate chip cookie recipe, only instead of dropping the dough in spoonful-size lumps onto a baking sheet, you press it into a brownie pan.

What you get is a thick, yummy square that’s almost crusty on the outside and gooey on the inside.  Not to mention studded with chocolate chips.

Try them fresh from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.  Super delicious.

To make your own Vanilla Brownies, you’ll need:

  • 2 1/4 cups of flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter – softened
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Line an 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper (or grease it well).

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and stir them up well.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, the sugars and the vanilla until they are nice and smooth.  Beat the eggs into butter mixture one at a time.  Next, stir in the flour mixture.  The batter will be quite stiff.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spread the batter evenly into the pan.

Bake for 35-45 minutes.  Let the pan cool for at least ten minutes before you try to eat them.  Then try to stop eating them.  🙂
