If you have 10 minutes and a saucepan, you can whip up these yummy treats! Chocolate saucepan brownies are a quick, super-easy and delicious preparation. Just melt the butter and chocolate, beat in the sugar, eggs, and dry ingredients, and then bake. That's all there is to it!
Everything is mixed in a medium saucepan, so there are very few dirty dishes to clean.
Feel free to add some chocolate or white chocolate chips or nuts, or add some brickle bits to the batter. They're great frosted, too!
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate (or bittersweet)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (3 1/2 ounces)
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Optional: 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Gather the ingredients. Heat oven to 325 F; grease and flour an 8-inch square baking pan. Line the pan with parchment paper, if desired.
Put the butter and chocolate in a saucepan and place it over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly until the butter and chocolate are melted. Turn the heat off and let the mixture cool slightly. Whisk the sugar and vanilla into the chocolate mixture.
Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl; stir to blend.
Stir the flour mixture into the chocolate batter mixture. Stir in the chopped nuts, if using, blending well.
Spread the batter in the prepared pan.
Bake the brownies in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes.
