Easy Brownie Recipe

A Family Favourite

I grew up on them.  When I was in grade five my mom went from being a stay-at-home mom, to working as a housekeeper 3 mornings a week at, what we called at the time “the mansion”.  There was also a full-time cook named Rose.  

Rose made these brownies at least once a week, and sometimes more, and it wasn’t long before my mom was making them too.  They’re super easy, and delicious, and that soon made them a staple at our house too.

One Bowl Brownies

Last week when my youngest Maddie decided she wanted brownie sundae’s for her Cruise Birthday Party, I turned to my old standby brownie recipe.  

I hadn’t made them for a while, and I have to say  I was reminded how easy and yummy they were, and realized I’d never shared them here on Life is a Party before.  If you don’t have a go-to brownie recipe, then now you do. 😉

Don’t Over Bake

Brownies should be fudgy and kind of gooey inside, so be sure not to over bake these.  Follow the timing on the recipe.

Homemade Vs. Box Mix

If you’ve ever worried that making brownies from scratch will be hard or time consuming then these are the right recipe for you.  They’re really easy to make, in just one bowl, so no more clean up than from a box mix.  They’re cheaper to make from scratch and more delicious too.  And these brownies are made with items you probably have in your pantry right now, so you can whip them up anytime.  They’re really great served with ice cream and this hot fudge sauce, or just on their own.
