  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line one 9x9-inch baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the sugar until dissolved. Remove mixture from heat. Gradually pour the melted butter into the beaten eggs, whisking constantly, until mixture is fully incorporated. Stir in the vanilla.
  3. Sift the flour, cocoa and salt together. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mixing until combined. Stir in the walnuts. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until brownies are set (a toothpick inserted in the center should have small crumbs clinging to it, rather than wet batter), 45 to 50 minutes. Do not overbake!


  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

These brownies had a great taste. I did make a few changes like others. I used only 5 eggs, and cooked in a 9/13 pan. I also only cooked them for 35 mins. They were great! I took them to wo...

This recipe is a good, just like many others I have found and very simple to make. So I am reading about problems with the butter being to hot. Ok after my 20 years of baking, here is my advice,...

This recipe is very good. The overall taste and texture was awesome. The recipe has many faults though, a 9x9 pan is much too small. I used a 9x13. I didnt add walnuts because i dont like them a...
