We made brownies. Yum.

I have two brownie recipes that are my staples. This is the cake-like brownie recipe.* Kiddo loved helping to make (and eat these). I forgot to take a picture when they came out of the oven, but just picture a pan of brownies. LOL.

I was initially apprehensive about letting her do much with this recipe because most of the mixing happens on the stovetop or with a hot pot. I needn’t have worried. Kiddo was a rockstar, and as she would tell you, she’s “really good at cooking.” 😍

Happy baking!


  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1½ Tbs. (extra light tasting olive) oil*
  • 2 Tbs. water
  • 1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ (slightly heaping) teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat over to 325˚F. Grease an 8×8 inch square pan.
  2. In medium saucepan, combine sugar, oil and water. Cook over medium heat until boiling. Kiddo helped measure and added the ingredients, and I did the stovetop portion.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until mixture is smooth. This part was cool enough for Kiddo to help me.
  4. Mix in eggs and vanilla.
  5. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Then stir flour mixture into the saucepan.
  6. Spread evenly into prepared 8×8 pan.
  7. Bake at 325˚F for 28 minutes, until brownies are set. Cool in pan.

* I have no idea where I first got this recipe. Probably, but it’s been so many years that I can’t remember.
