I got this recipe years ago in a package of aluminum disposable cake pans, of all places!  It is now my go-to brownie recipe!

These are very chocolatey and fudgey!  And what could be easier than only using one pan!

Fudgey Saucepan Brownies


1 cup (2 sticks) butter
¾ cup unsweetened baking cocoa
2 ¼ cups sugar
½ teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)


1. Heat oven to 350°.  Grease a 9 x 13” baking pan.

2.  Melt butter in a medium saucepan.  Remove from heat. Add cocoa; stir until smooth.  Cool slightly.

3.  Add sugar, salt, eggs and vanilla; stir until thoroughly combined.  Add flour and baking powder; mix well.  Spread into prepared pan.

4.  Sprinkle chocolate chips (if using) evenly over batter.  Bake 30 minutes or until top is dry and brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan.  Cool completely in pan.

Makes 24-32 brownies
