I’ve tried to make from scratch brownies and cakes in the past. No matter how easy the recipe they always turn out Awful! I wish I could give this recipe 10 stars. I made it for Thanksgiving Dinner this year and it turned out Wonderfully! It was the hit pie at the dessert table. I melted the butter and mixed in the sugar then added the rest of the ingredients. I made a double batch (16 servings) And it filled 2 Pilsbury pie crusts perfectly. I also did not bake the pie crusts beforehand. If I would have it would have ruined the crust. I baked it at 350 for 35 minutes. Let cool and topped with whipped cream. PERFECTO!
1 stick butter, softened
1 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 c all-purpose flour
How to make it:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
Add cocoa powder, salt, and flour and stir until well combined. Grease 8-inch pie pan with butter or cooking spray, pour the mixture into pie pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes until the center is set.
Hand mix to make it gooey, because if you use a mixer, it will have more of a brownie or cake texture, rather than “gooey”.
