Christmas Brownies

Its been sometime I really baked something. Today I went out to a local store here and when I saw all the Christmas cookies/goodies my heart filled with happiness. Soon rushed out of the store came home and decided to bake.
Its Christmas and how can one not bake any...
Brownie, A tasty treat to satisfy our chocolate sweet tooths. This name makes my mouth water.
Make it, Love it and Eat it
1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • Method:
  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Grease an 8 inch sqaure pan
  • 2. Melt 1/2 cup of butter and mix in sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Use hand mixer if you have one. Beat in cocoa powder, flour,salt and baking powder. 
  • 3. Spread the batter into prepared baking pan
  • 4. Bake in oven for 30-35 mins.
  • Note: Do not over cook

  • If you find this process difficult or feel tired to do from scratch, use Ghirardelli triple chocolate brownie mix and follow the instructions on it to bake

  • Tip to check if your cake is done:
  • one can test a cake by inserting a clean toothpick into the middle of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done. If the toothpick comes out with crumbs, or clearly shows wet cake batter, the cake is not finished cooking. Don’t use a knife to test the cake as this can deflate a cake.


  1. Make it, Love it but DONOT EAT it
    Be cautious of your health
